Purpose: Last week, we looked at the operations of the Porfirian government in the development of Mexican archaeology and heritage management. This week, we’ll compare this Porfirian innovation with another industry came to international prominence during this period: oil.
Task: Compare the discussion of archaeology and heritage management in Bueno with Santiago’s discussion of the oil industry in the Huasteca, with reference to last week’s lecture. How did archaeology and the oil industry work together or conflict, given the broader objectives and practices of the Porfirian state? In your first post, make an argument, citing specific evidence from the course readings.
