Abstract

How are biological diversity, protected areas, indigenous knowledge and religious worldviews related? From an anthropological perspective, this book provides an introduction into the complex subject of conservation policies that cannot be addressed without recognising the encompassing relationship between discursive, political, economic, social and ecological facets. By facing these interdependencies across global, national and local dynamics, it draws on an ethnographic case study among Maya-Q'eqchi' communities living in the margins of protected areas in Guatemala. In documenting the cultural aspects of landscape, the study explores the coherence of diverse expressions of indigenous knowledge. It intends to remind of cultural values and beliefs closely tied to subsistence activities and ritual practices that define local perceptions of the natural environment. The basic idea is to illustrate that there are different ways of knowing and reasoning, seeing and endowing the world with meaning, which include visible material and invisible interpretative understandings. These tend to be underestimated issues in international debates and may provide an alternative approach upon which conservation initiatives responsive to the needs of the humans involved should be based on.

Abstract

Une équipe pluridisciplinaire s'est intéressée au « pays Quiche » situé dans les hautes terres occidentales du Guatemala. Celles-ci, où sont concentrés les trois quarts de la population indienne du pays, sont occupées depuis l'époque préclassique (600 ± 100 av. J.-C), selon les résultats des fouilles archéologiques. Cependant, les trois archéologues de l'équipe étudient essentiellement le site classique (600-900 ap. J.-C.) de Los Cerritos Chijoj : A. Ichon analyse la fonction des édifices cérémoniels ; H. Lehmann décrit le jeu de balle ; M.-F. Fauvet-Berthelot, s'attachant plus spécialement à la zone d'habitat de ce site, met en évidence d'une part la relation étroite entre la fonction sociale des « structures » et l'aménagement de l'espace, d'autre part la fonction à la fois résidentielle, funéraire et cérémonielle de cette zone.

Abstract

Can education play a role in fostering economic growth and simultaneously decrease pressure on forests? The aim of this study is to show that it can. Human capital formation is a key element in a development strategy that includes natural resource conservation within the framework of sustained economic growth and poverty alleviation. Consequently, it is not by chance that Guatemala is experiencing both minimal per capital income growth and high deforestation while having one of the lowest educational levels in Latin America. However, since many assumptions about educational benefits are controversial and many aspects depend on broader issues, human capital formation can only be one piece in a multidimensional puzzle. This study is organized into three parts, each one of which can be read independently: first, a macroeconomic assessment of education and other factors involved in the country’s growth trajectory; second, a rural analysis indicating the root causes of deforestation and the role education can play to slow down habitat loss; third, the highlighting of some elements indispensable to reform and to subsequent improvement of the quality of rural schooling.

Abstract

In contemporary global capitalist culture, time-consciousness becomes more important than self-consciousness. In the realm of lived time, the identity of the self opens up to an encounter with otherness. Insights into the ways in which this dynamic unfolds enable one to affirm human temporalities in their potential difference to the temporalities of global capitalism. The book offers an empirical exploration of lived temporalities on markets, in buses and in traditional subsistence in Guatemala, and a theoretical exploration of these through the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze and inter-relational approaches within psychoanalysis.

Abstract

Chronique d’une plantation, Jours ordinaires à la finca restitue sur le vif la marche d’un système agraire mal connu mais répandu en Amérique du Sud. Au Guatemala, la culture du café est omniprésente. Dans la région de la Costa Cuca, « caféière géante », elle est pratiquée dans le cadre de grandes plantations, les fincas. De l’une à l’autre, si les techniques de travail se ressemblent, les situations sociales diffèrent. À la finca Los Angeles, deux groupes d’ouvriers agricoles, d’origines métisse et indienne, coexistent. Relativement ferme, le système social ne se réduit pourtant pas à l’opposition entre une classe d’ouvriers et le grand planteur. Selon les travaux, les ouvriers sont répartis entre des équipes qui reflètent une hiérarchie technique et symbolique. Les femmes, exclues des tâches nobles, développent une vie économique et sociale dans les marges étroites de l’ordre de la plantation. Les identités et les situations des acteurs de la plantation sont plus complexes qu’il n’y paraît car ce monde, apparemment clos, est aussi ouvert à la société guatémaltèque, à travers le travail salarié, les religions et les mouvements politiques.
