Abstract

Este libro publica una serie de estudios transfronterizos argentino-chilenos y articula trabajos conjuntos de investigadores de ambos lados de la cordillera de la Patagonia. El camino recorrido por las investigaciones atraviesa tres ejes: circuitos, relaciones y representaciones de prácticas políticas y económicas; territorios, itinerarios y expresiones materiales; prácticas culturales y sociales en el marco de la interculturalidad. Los textos fueron puestos a consideración de distintos referentes académicos especializados y buscan constituir una conversación provocadora y provechosa. Por otra parte, pretenden consolidar el imaginario de un territorio común en el tiempo y el espacio, a través de la cordillera como eje integrador y no como límite político nacional.

Abstract

Island Melanesia is a remarkable region in many respects, from its great ecological and linguistic diversity, to the complex histories of settlement and interaction spanning from the Pleistocene to the present. Archaeological research in Island Melanesia is currently going through a vibrant phase of exciting new discoveries and challenging debates about questions that apply far beyond the region. This volume draws together a variety of current perspectives in regional archaeology for Island Melanesia, focusing on Vanuatu, the Solomon Islands, New Caledonia and Papua New Guinea. It features both high-level theoretical approaches and rigorous data-driven case studies covering recent research in landscape archaeology, exchange and material culture, and cultural practices.

Abstract

Dominant cultural narratives about later life dismiss the value senior citizens hold for society. In her cultural-philosophical critique, Hanne Laceulle outlines counter narratives that acknowledge both potentials and vulnerabilities of later life. She draws on the rich philosophical tradition of thought about self-realization and explores the significance of ethical concepts essential to the process of growing old such as autonomy, authenticity and virtue. These counter narratives aim to support older individuals in their search for a meaningful age identity, while they make society recognize its senior members as valued participants and moral agents of their own lives.
