Vinicius de Aguiar Furuie

Vinicius de Aguiar Furuie is currently studying river trade in the Xingu river, in the Brazilian Amazonia.  A reader of economic and political anthropology, he is interested in debates about value, exchange, contract, credit, barter, commodity and kinship. He is also fascinated by the history of Amazonia and how it is felt in river life. In previous projects, Vinicius has done ethnographies of antinuclear social movements in Tokyo and media reception in a favela in São Paulo.
