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 14, Issue 1 (2016)We are pleased to publish this issue of the journal featuring articles from across the Amazonian geographical spectrum as well as a variety of international scholars with perspectives that bring greater depth to our understanding of lowland South America. Along this same line, we also introduce the first iteration of the Tipiti Forum, with short contributions on current topics and debates. We begin with contributions on the topic of uncontacted/isolated/voluntarily isolated peoples in some of the various political landscapes of lowland South America. Finally, we introduce another new section to the journal, the Commentary, featuring papers on various topics of interest to researching anthropologists. This issue features a contribution stemming from a Conversations in the Lobby session at our latest SALSA conference.
