This selection of texts is a primary step in the direction of delivering a theoretical and methodological platform for the examine of social encounters. The social come across is a specific type of inspiration, targeting confusion, stress, trauma, and probably social switch which could emerge in occasions of touch whilst humans and issues have interaction.

The repeated social stumble upon is usually a war of words with anything, similar to an opinion, a functionality, or with materialities and the results are frequently unpredictable. Encounters might reproduce a social trend, but additionally include capability for transformation and alter. Such diverse responses to encounters will surely affect the archaeological checklist. the first concentration of the amount is the results and tactics fascinated about intra- and inter-societal encounters. the gathering accordingly fills a theoretical and methodological hole within the research of the stumble upon in archaeology. there's a want for elaborating points of postcolonial concept which will increase new methods of imminent the archaeological checklist.

Sample text

In order to understand Bhabha’s way of thinking, it may be illuminating to recall his metaphor of the house (which he borrows from Renée Green). A house may consist of several floors that are accessible by a staircase. In order to move from the first to the second floor or vice versa, one needs to use the stairs. The staircase is thus metaphorically speaking transcending 'certain binary oppositions' such as high and low by offering a liminal space and a pathway between the extremes. The liminal space of the stairwell is, according to Bhabha, an ‘interstitial passage’ in a similar sense that allows a social subject to move in and out of, for instance, different racial subject positions.

The origin of the emergence of new practices, materials or artefacts in an area is often a question to pursue, and even sometimes regarded as the main objective for the analysis. Of course, there are certainly cases of both acculturation and diffusion in prehistory and we can expect some rate of migration or ‘colonisation’ at times. But Bhabha's perspective provides us with additional scenarios that may actually help us to better understand the appearance of new materialities and practices at a given time and place.
