Tipití: Journal of the Society for the Anthropology of Lowland South America is the only refereed journal entirely dedicated to lowland South America. Tipití is increasingly recognized as an established and cutting-edge journal for lowland South American anthropology scholarship. Although lowland South American anthropology is far from being a unified, homogeneous field of research, it is renewing anthropological thinking on a number of issues through its debates and its diversity. And although various schools of Amazonian anthropology, rooted in different national traditions, co-exist today, they all share the same commitment to ethnography, as well as the view that it is through advancing cross-cultural comparative research that lowland South American specialists will contribute to anthropological theory. Tipití is committed to providing a space for such a diverse intellectual meeting-ground.
Current Issue: Volume 13, Issue 1 (2015)We are pleased to publish Volume 13/1 of the journal, which includes papers from across the anthropological spectrum in lowland South America.
