Abstract [en]

I have much sympathy for Shannon Dawdy’s eloquent argument in favour of reorienting archaeology away from reconstructions of the past and towards problems of the present (p. 140). The topic is timely, her argument sharp, and the discussion of the issues at hand benefits from them being put on the spot in rather dramatic fashion. I do not agree with those who might argue that such calls for more social relevance in a humanities subject are merely the symptom of an unhelpful but prevalent insecurity and demonstrate a lack of confidence in one’s own academic abilities. At the same time, Dawdy’s passionate and courageous argument would have benefited from additional analysis of the subject matter at hand. As it stands, I have two main reservations to her paper.
