But how do you go about it?: Mobilization processes in partnership building concerning the public face of contract archaeology
2011 (English)In: Current Swedish Archaeology, ISSN 1102-7355, Vol. 19, 203-222 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Partnership and dialogue are central concepts in national heritage management. This article problematizes the concepts on the basis of a theme project conducted in a high school, where the aim has been to give the pupils insight into history-making processes. The school project was carried out as part of the public activity in a major contract archaeology project. The text has a self-reflexive perspective, analysing mobilization processes in connection with the establishment and implementation of the theme project. The article shows the pragmatic attitude of the institutional actors to different educational ideals, with partnership as an instrument on its own in terms of market aspects. This raises ethical questions about the pupils and the conditions for the desired partnership.
