Bruno Ubiali is a 2022 Halperin Memorial Fund recipient from the Society for Economic Anthropology for his proposed research "Present but Invisible: Revealing Perceptions of Forest Products in the Eastern Amazon". The award will pay for predissertation research and for him to present his work at the 2023 SEA conference.
Abstract: The ongoing expansion of government-sponsored logging and cattle ranching in the Brazilian Amazon collides with Indigenous communities that pursue forest-based livelihoods. This predissertation research aims at understanding Indigenous and large-scale farmers’ cultural notions of land, which will contribute to revealing the cultural and social values of forest-based livelihoods and industrial agriculture in the Amazon and elsewhere. I will undertake this predissertation research in Santarém, Brazil, where Indigenous livelihoods and corporate interests currently are – and have historically been – in stark contrast. I will meet academic partners, establish relationships with communities, and collect data that will inform my dissertation research design.

HECLab advances interdisciplinary investigation that is betrothed, both mentally and in practice, with ecological change as it articulates to humans and society. It handles work that emphasizes on permanent human and ecological welfare in light of changing social and environmental situations. Our investigation consists of actor and system-based viewpoints and institutional and governance assessment to aid to clarify the relationships of people and their environments both urban and rural. Issue-based investigation needs a different set of techniques and scales of evaluation. The lab aids the techniques that comprise of ethnographic research, agent-based modeling, remote sensing strategies, and the growth of vigorous geospatial files. Scales of analysis range between households via local and global terrain.
