On November 29 and 30, 2019, took place the Meeting “The past summons us: NOA Archeology Generated by Women” (in memoriam of Patricia Escola), organized and held in Tilcara, Jujuy. This second meeting / workshop on the personal and academic experiences of archaeologists of different generations had the objective of contributing with new contents to the history of archeology in Argentina, through their own personal and academic paths, crossed by different political junctures.

This meeting allowed to broaden the horizon of the group of women archaeologists making a journey from a perspective, until that moment never approached –that is, the female way of looking– of the archaeological practices of the NOA in the field, in the laboratory and in the university cloisters between the sixties and today. The meeting was open to «all archaeologists working at NOA.» Colleagues from different academic, university and scientific centers participated and they reflected on the professional practice of women in Argentine archeology, outlining the history of the discipline of the last 60 years in our country. The rounds of stories were the focus of the meeting, filled with the senses and profound testimonies of the four generations. In addition, PhD. Myriam Tarragó gave a moving conference entitled “Deconstructing the path. How I became a woman / archaeologist”.

THE PAST SUMMONS US: THREE GENERATIONS OF WOMEN IN NOA ARCHEOLOGY

(in memoriam de Ana Lorandi)

From December 7 to 10, 5 members of IDECU participated in the Encounter «The past summons us: three generations of women in NOA Archeology» (in memoriam of Ana Lorandi), organized by Alejandra Korstanje (ISES – CONICET – UNT ); Veronica I. Williams (IDECU – UBA – CONICET) Barbara Manasse (UNC – UNT) and Patricia Arenas (IAM – UNT) and held in the town of La Ovejeria, Tafi del Valle, Tucumán.
Fourteen colleagues from different academic, university and scientific centers participated and they reflected on the professional practice of women in Argentine archeology, outlining the history of the discipline of the last 60 years in our country. 

Gender equity and the need for women to think about their working conditions and contexts is a claim of our times. The archaeologists who in the last decades of the twentieth century in Argentina have come to occupy high positions in science and technology organizations and have formed several generations of disciples, are scarce. We consider that knowing how their production conditions were in the beginning and asking ourselves how was the transmission of knowledge from women to women is a requirement to be able to construct not only historiographies and genealogies, but to understand our own constructions as scientists and universities.

Academic training is a somewhat complex process, winding, imprecise in its limits, taking various paths, but all the guests at this meeting share a characteristic that is they are inspired or identified in some part of their respective trajectories with the archeology of the Northwest Argentine and with an Argentine archaeologist woman.

The objective of this meeting focused on 14 women (due to genealogy and methodological need to create an introspective environment), was to register, based on interviews and a series of guiding questions to three generations of archaeologists who have worked in the Argentine Northwest, their stories life, their personal trajectories and thus be able to delineate the course of the discipline in the last 60 years, participating as first-hand witnesses of different moments in the country, with various governments, whose administrations have influenced the scientific and technological development of Argentina in which there have been ontological turns, new methodological approaches and changes in professional practice. We have tried to record a story as a chronological, analytical and evaluative account resulting from the sum of a series of stories lived by the protagonists.
