There are many exciting projects in the pipeline, including edited collections and monographs. See below for already published titles.
Members are invited to submit their proposals
The EASA book series publishes works in English that address worthwhile questions in a cogent, persuasive and fluent way. Manuscripts must not be under consideration by any other publisher.
To find out what is needed to put forward a book proposal please email the Series Editor, aleksandarbos(at)gmail.com, who will advise about the specific material needed, and offer informal advice about how a proposal can be strengthened. The Editor can also offer advice to those who are not native speakers of English but who want to submit a proposal to the series.
Proposals should include an extended discussion of the work as a whole, which identifies the projected work’s topic and significance, its analytical or theoretical orientation and its empirical content. Ideally this would mean a draft of the Introduction. In addition, they should have an abstract (about 300 words) of each chapter (for monographs) or contribution (for edited volumes). After reviewing this material, the Series Editor will indicate what further material is needed.

NON-HUMANS IN AMERINDIAN SOUTH AMERICA: Ethnographies of Indigenous Cosmologies, Rituals and Songs
Edited by Juan Javier Rivera Andía
Drawing on fieldwork from diverse Amerindian societies whose lives and worlds are undergoing processes of transformation, adaptation, and deterioration, this volume offers new insights into the indigenous constitutions of humanity, personhood, and environment characteristic of the South American highlands and lowlands. The resulting ethnographies – depicting non-human entities emerging in ritual, oral tradition, cosmology, shamanism and music – explore the conditions and effects of unequally ranked life forms, increased extraction of resources, continuous migration to urban centers, and the (usually) forced incorporation of current expressions of modernity into indigenous societies.
