Paper Title: CONFLICTIVE TRADE ALONG THE MARGINS: VALUE AND POWER RELATIONS BETWEEN FORAGERS, TRIBAL SWIDDENERS, AND LOWLAND POLITIES IN THE PREHISPANIC AND RECENT PHILIPPINES
Author: LAURA JUNKER (University of Illinois-Chicago), LARISSA SMITH   
Date/Time: Fri., 8:15 AM
Co-Author(s): LAURA JUNKER (University of Illinois-Chicago), LARISSA SMITH 
Abstract: Historical documents and archaeological evidence are combined to examine the long-term history of trade and social dynamics between Philippine maritime trading polities of the 8th-16th centuries and culturally distinct interior groups, including small-scale swidden farming societies and mobile foragers. Archaeological tracking of foreign porcelain and other goods through local trade networks reveal variation in social meanings and contested values in these material exchanges, regional power differentials, and highly conflictive social landscapes that may not be apparent from historical accounts. Ethnographic sources allow us to expand this discussion into continuing economic and social friction in the modern Philippine state.
