Arqueologia e patrimônio cultural além da quarentena

reflexões da Suécia sobre o Covid-19 e suas consequências




futuros do patrimônio, "crise do corona vírus", solidariedade global


Durante os anos da pandemia COVID-19 (2020-2021 até agora), ninguém pôde permanecer em quarentena real. Os humanos do mundo eram lembrados diariamente do progresso global (ou não) de um vírus, várias vacinas e de vários sistemas de saúde. Como sempre, a arqueologia não poderia escapar de seu presente. Seguem aqui minhas reflexões sobre alguns problemas que passaram pela minha mente durante a época da "crise do corona vírus". Eles refletem minha perspectiva como um arqueólogo trabalhando sobre os futuros do patrimônio, alguém que normalmente viaja muito pela Europa e além, mas agora permaneceu na Suécia, trabalhando muito em casa e, curiosamente, participando ainda mais de encontros internacionais do que antes, embora virtuais.
