Abstract

This is a proposal for a one-year research internship at the Centre for Amerindian, Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CAS), at Saint Andrews University, under the supervision of Dr. Mark Harris. The main goal is to deepen my understanding of some topics I investigated during my recent fieldwork towards a PhD degree, aiming to contribute to the discussion about Amazonian socialities. The initial hypothesis of this PhD research project was that there is, among non-indigenous Amazonian people of the upper Juruá river, a multiplicity of ways for organizing social life, this multiplicity being perceived at the household level. After my recent fieldwork, it became clear that households are connected through a network of kinship and political alliances, providing a pattern of regional sociality that surpasses households and kindreds.
