Teaching Lowland South America

This page hosts themes and links aimed to provide materials, information and inspiration for teaching Lowland South American anthropology.

As past and current bodies of literature that emerge from fieldwork among communities, villages, cities and organizations, our ethnographic and theoretical contributions to anthropology are significant. We hope to capture the wealth and range of our contributions by suggesting topics that can contribute toward various forms of pedagogy.

We are in an initial process of gathering information to populate this page. We welcome:

  • Views and/or experiences about teaching on Lowland South America you wish to share
  • Materials you would like to contribute: syllabuses, notes, exercises, assessments, slides.
  • Information on field schools

We also welcome ideas about what you would like to see addressed on this page, and any other pedagogical thoughts.
