Satoshi NAKAGAWA Professor

I am conducting fieldwork on Ende, Flores Island in East Indonesia. Recently, I have also commenced research in Timor-Leste (the East Timor Republic). I plan to compare these sections of East Indonesia (including Timor-Leste), focusing on ritual exchange. On the theoretical side, I am currently pondering over cultural relativism as a basic principle of anthropology.
