Wawqes Pukllas. Prácticas juveniles de escritura quichua (Argentina)

Héctor Alfredo Andreani,


Departing from an experience of a Quichua writing workshop in a village in the province of Santiago del Estero (Argentina), where a group of young bilingual produced several types of texts in Quichua for the elaboration of a book of their own authorship, this work provides an ethnographic description of attitudes, practices and conflicts inherent to the writing process. Ethnographic inquiry sustains the framework to think about the role played by the Quichua writings, their roles and implications in these young people and their community, in a context where this native language (which is a minority compared to Spanish) does not have a script based on social practices of public visibility.
