Ya no más cuerpos muertos: mediación e interrupción en el reconocimiento de lo ranquel




ABSTRACT

No More Dead Bodies: Mediation and Interruption in the Recognition of Ranquel Identity

This essay is based on my research on indigenous (re)emergence in an Argentinean province and on the records of an ethnographic event that involved the restitution of the skull of a Ranquel chief. My interpretation focuses on the body, death, the fetish and the phantom and is intended as a contribution toward a way of studying and participating in the ongoing recognition of identities that goes beyond a certain social constructivism.
