Guillermo Salas Carreño’s received his Ph.D. in 2012 from the Department of Anthropology. 

Guillermo Salas Carreño’s second book, Lugares parientes: Comida, Cohabitacion y Mundos Andinos (Kindred places: Food, coresidence, and Andean worlds), was recently published by the Fondo Editorial de la Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú. Professor Salas starts from the premise that commensality, hospitality, and co-residence are fundamental to the construction of kin relations in the Andes, to show that other social relations—with other humans, but also with mountains, lakes, cultivated fields, and so forth—are formed by the same logic, so that places can also be kin.
