Antropología peruana en el siglo XXI. Nuevas interpretaciones para antiguas y nuevas realidades

Producción científica: Contribución a una revistaArtículorevisión exhaustiva


Peruvian anthropology has come a long way. Being faithful to its origins, it maintains a set of recurring research themes; seeking to understand contemporary reality, it incorporates new themes, but above all it rehearses new interpretive paradigms. Some of its themes have been permanent, such as those related to development, indigenous populations, rural transformations and "cultural" issues. While these issues remain, new variables has integrated: extractive activities, tourism, interculturality, populations not contacted. New issues related to solving problems and social needs (education, health, public policies, indigenous consultation) are increasingly frequent. In parallel, a series of post-conflict themes has developed, such as memory and balance of the years of violence. Constructed academically in research centers, Peruvian anthropology has, however, a heavy centralist bias, although anthropology developed in its regions is experiencing slow progress. The current certification process of universities is helping to implement the processes of training, production and circulation of teachers and new knowledge.
