Marta Amoroso, Karen Shiratori, Aline Ferreira Oliveira and Joaquim Almeida Neto, eds. (2023). Special Issue “Alteridades Vegetais.” Cadernos de Campo. 32:2.
The articles in this dossier focus above all on indigenous ways of living and inhabiting the world, in which a plurality of agents take part, playing out more-than-human stories with humans.

Patrícia Vieira, ed. Special IssueThe Amazon River Basin: Extractivism, Aesthetics and Indigenous Perspectives.Journal of Latin American Cultural Studies. 32.2 (2023).

The essays in this special issue analyze novels, essays, travel narratives, letters, film, photography and artworks that reveal the preponderance of an extractivist mindset in the approach to Amazonia and its peoples in recent history. The essays also showcase the creative ways in which Amazonian human and more-than-human communities forge counternarratives that underline their affective ties to the land.

Karen Shiratori, Majoí Favero Gongora, Renato Sztutman and Roberto Romero Ribeiro Júnior, eds. Special Issue Novas perspectivas sobre os sonhos ameríndios.” Revista de Antropologia. 65.3 (2022).

This dossier brings together recent contributions focused on the lowlands of South America with the aim of highlighting the theme of dream activity in its relationship with Indigenous cosmopolitics (and by cosmopolitics we mean the process of composing people, collectives and worlds). In common, these works reflect on dreams as events full of consequences, not restricted to nightlife.

Karen Shiratori, Laure Emperaire and Ana Gabriela Morim de Lima, eds. Special Issue Voix de la terreRevue d’ethnoécologie. 23 (2023).

Through an interdisciplinary approach, this publication encourages exchanges between archaeology, archaeobotany, botany, agronomy and social anthropology, with different theoretical and methodological perspectives on plants with underground starchy reserves. Due to the diversity of the approaches proposed, the fields studied (Europe, Africa and South America) and the times mobilized, it also aims to reflect on plant-society connections in the context of a crisis that makes us reconsider relations between humans and non-humans, even the least visible of the latter, hidden beneath the ground.
