Juan Rivera’s ongoing research examines cosmologies among indigenous groups of South America, particularly Quechua-speaking peoples of the highlands. His projects have received the support of the UNESCO, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and the Maison des Sciences de l’Homme, and they have taken place in research centres such as the Netherlands Institute of Advanced Studies, the Smithsonian Institution, the Polish Institute of Advanced Studies, and the universities of Barcelona and Nanterre. Among his publications is his first monograph La fiesta del ganado en el valle del Chancay (2003); the recent articles, chapters and review essays: « Comparaison entre la herranza, la « fête de l’eau » et la zafa-casa dans les Andes » (Recherches Amérindiennes au Québec, 2014) “Andean Musical Expressions. Ethnographic notes on materialities, ontologies and alterities” (Seligmann & Fine-Dare: The Andean World. Routledge, 2019), “Recent methodological approaches in ethnographies of human and non-human Amerindian collectives” (Reviews in Anthropology, 2019), “Indigenous Divergences from the Sacrifice Zones and Rehabilitations of Extractivism” (The Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology, 2022), and “Re-enchantment and correspondence in the Anthropocene” (Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute 2022). In the last years, he has edited the volumes Non-humans in Amerindian South America (2018) and Indigenous life projects and extractivism (coedited with Cecilie Ødegaard, 2019). He also coproduced a video installation and film series with P. Snowdon entitled The owners of the land: Culture and the spectre of mining in the Andes (2013).
