LIVING AND EXPERIENCING SPACES, LANDSCAPES AND PLACES: BUILDING THEORIES AND METHODOLOGIES FROM MEMORIES, EMOTIONS AND SENSITIVITIES

 

Abstract:

Continuing with the debates of previous editions of TAAS and particularly with those that occurred in the symposium “Past and present spatialities. Theoretical and methodological aspects for its approach” (VII TAAS, La Paz 2016), we propose to generate a discussion in relation to the concepts of landscape and space (physical, social and symbolic), and the way in which the pre-Hispanic, historical and contemporary peoples in America they experienced or lived it. For several decades, new perspectives have been developing around relationships (material, symbolic and ideal), maintained between human beings and their environment. In them, space is considered, beyond its physical dimension and its role as a support for social practices, as a social elaboration, the result of the objectification of the same, of the actions, experiences and ways of thinking about the world. From this point of view, human societies build their space and organize it according to different logics that structure their relations with the environment, always assuming a relational sense and linked both with social practices, as to the ontological systems. Thus, our attention will focus on understanding the changes, continuities, and discontinuities in the perception, organization, and management of landscapes and spaces, with emphasis on the different perceptions of the Indigenous peoples in America (cultural, economic, political and symbolic). With this, we hope to contribute to the current debate of the archeology and social sciences, in relation to the occupation of the territory, the ideological systems and social organization, proposing an holistic and interdisciplinary approach that articulates research coming from any type of discipline or approach, both theoretical and methodological interested in these issues.
