Emanuele Fabiano


Biography

Emanuele Fabiano obtained a Ph.D. degree at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales de Paris (EHESS) in 2015. He is a member of the Laboratoire d'Anthropologie Sociale (LAS) and the Grupo de Antropología Amazónica (GAA-PUCP). He has done extended fieldwork among the Urarina of Peruvian Amazonia, as well as in the Andean regions of southern Peru and Bolivia. His doctoral dissertation analyzed indigenous techniques of fabrication of human and non-human persons, and their implications for the process of social reproduction among the Urarina. His recent investigations focus on the study of contemporary indigenous Amazonian communities and their relationship with the state and local and international markets. He has investigated the anthropological, social and political effects of extractive processes (timber and petroleum), and their effects at the ritual and cosmographical level. In addition to his research in Peru, in 2017 he did three months of comparative fieldwork among the Embera of the Darien region of Panama with the support of a short-term fellowship from the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute. He is now a researcher at the Faculty of Social Science of the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú (Lima), and the recipient of a post-doctoral scholarship from the ECO Animals and Plants in Cultural Productions about the Amazon River Basin project.
