Involutions of materiality: Operationalizing a neo-materialist perspective through the causeways of Ichmul and Yo’okop, Mexico
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of Archaeology and Classical Studies.
2010 (English)In: Journal of archaeological method and theory, ISSN 1072-5369, E-ISSN 1573-7764, Vol. 17, no 2, 132-173 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The neo-materialist ontology outlined by the philosophers Gilles Deleuze and Manuel DeLanda has several implications for archeology. This text primarily discusses their replacement of the general and the specific with universal and individual singularities which creates emergent properties. This is both a process of evolution and involution where materialities create multi-scalar assemblages. Causeway assemblages from two sites, Ichmul and Yo’okop in the northern Maya lowlands in southern Mexico, are used to operationalize this perspective. Rather than focusing on a human-centered perspective, the text sees the causeways as parts of technologies that can help us to reach an anorganic perspective where we can become-materiality.
