I should have read, and should still read, Alberto Flores Galindo, Utopía en los Andes and Buscando un Inca.
I was reminded of these reading an old review essay on views and representations of the Andean past and future.
These things are important and I need to get cracking.
I do not like working in academia but it is the price one pays for liking research. It is painful to work in institutions that do not support research but one must resist.
