MALVESTITTI, Marisa. The Mapuzungun language in Puelmapu between 1885 and 1945. Scholarly territories and social territories. Boletín de Filología [online]. 2020, vol.55, n.1, pp.51-81. ISSN 0718-9303.

This article deals with the studies on the mapuzungun undertaken in the Argentine Republic, in a period that spans from 1885 –the end of the so-called “desert campaign”– to 1945, from a Linguistic Historiography perspective. It analyses the apparent scarcity of works related to the subject among the references provided by the summary bibliographies on the country’s indigenous languages produced during those years. Through the analysis of different types of sources, we describe the main approaches adopted by the linguistic and ethnological studies in those decades in two research groups: actors from the La Plata Museum and territorial intellectuals from the Patagonian area. This allows us to observe how was alternatively privileged the erudite documentary approach, based on evaluation Jesuit and contemporary trans-Andean materials as referents, and the empirical analysis of field data.

Palabras clave : Linguistic Historiograph; research traditions; Mapuzungun; La Plata Museum; territorial intellectuals.
