Dear Collegues,

I haven't lurked on this list very long, so please excuse me if I'm
butting into a discussion. I'm hoping to get some assistance with
resources. I'm a grad student beginning a research paper in which I hope
to combine elements of ecological and economic anthropology with my
interest in religion. Specifically, I would like to look at agricultural
change among the Cho'l, Chamula or Zinacanteco Mayans of Chiapas vis a
vis religious conversion to evangelicalism. Any literature which touches
on economics/ecology and religious ideology would be useful and
certainly, any recent research I could tap into would be wonderful. A
general post or private e-mail would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
