Resumen

ANGELO, Dante. Monumentality and landscape in the production of borders: Exploring national/ist landscapes in the northernmost region of Chile. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2018, vol.50, n.2, pp.289-306. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562017005000108.

In this article, I archaeologically scrutinize the construction of modern frontiers. By considering a small section of the current Chilean northernmost border and a patch of the Atacama Desert territory, I interrogate the relationship between landscape and monumentality, used in the production of national borders. In order to accomplish my goal, I recourse to a conceptual and meth- odological framework, exploring and inquiring about some of the principles of landscape archaeology, a theoretical trend that gained relevance in the archaeology of the Andes in the last decades. Thus, by highlighting the role that these marginal settings had in the configuration of a national territory, I expect to contribute to the study of modernity and how it builds itself from the outskirts of the Nation.

Palabras clave : Landscape; monumentality; machines; cableways; modernity.
