This talk will discuss heritage management of Peru's vast Inka Road system, or Qhapaq Ñan, which spans thousands of miles across the national territory. Building on six years as director of the Peruvian Ministry of Culture's Qhapaq Ñan project, Marcone focuses on how the system's wide dispersal and its role as a resource extensively used in the present day by local and Indigenous people throughout the Andes presents challenges for standard visions of heritage management and for conventional historical discourses regarding the past and present in Peru. 

Dr. Giancarlo Marcone is director of humanities, arts, and social sciences at the Universidad de Ingeniería y Tecnología in Lima, Peru. He received his doctorate in archaeology from the University of Pittsburgh and has published widely on Pachacámac and societies of the Peruvian central coast in the Middle Horizon and on the Inka Road system.

Free and open to the public.

Sponsored by the history, anthropology, and Spanish departments and the Archaeological Institute of America.
