Tulane University Uptown Campus
Various locations

The SALSA 2016 meetings will be held in New Orleans, USA, from January 7th-10th, 2016. The Society for the Anthropology of Lowland South America was organized in 2001, to provide an independent professional association for anthropologists specializing in lowland regions of South America (the Amazon, Orinoco, and Rio de la Plata river basins and adjacent areas). SALSA’s main goals are to foster sound and ethical research on the peoples and environments of lowland South America, and to promote the education of students and the general public on issues that we study. SALSA is an international society, bringing together specialists who live in Latin America, Europe, North America, and elsewhere.

The conference is hosted by the Department of Anthropology (Tulane University) and the Middle American Research Institute (Tulane University). We are also proud to be collaborating with and sponsored by the the Latin American Studies Program (University of New Orleans) and The New Orleans Center for the Gulf South (Tulane University).
