The science devoted to the comparative study of man.
The comparative science dealing with the physical characteristics of humans as related to their origin, evolution, and development in the total environment.
Field of social science that is concerned with differences between human groups as related to health status and beliefs.
It is the study of social phenomena which characterize the learned, shared, and transmitted social activities of particular ethnic groups with focus on the causes, consequences, and complexities of human social and cultural variability.
Scientific study of human skeletal remains with the express purpose of identification. This includes establishing individual identity, trauma analysis, facial reconstruction, photographic superimposition, determination of time interval since death, and crime-scene recovery. Forensic anthropologists do not certify cause of death but provide data to assist in determination of probable cause. This is a branch of the field of physical anthropology and qualified individuals are certified by the American Board of Forensic Anthropology. (From Am J Forensic Med Pathol 1992 Jun;13(2):146)

Freezer anthropology: new uses for old blood. (1/125)

Archived blood fractions (plasma, settled red cells, white cells) have proved to be a rich and valuable source of DNA for human genetic studies. Large numbers of such samples were collected between 1960 and the present for protein and blood group studies, many of which are languishing in freezers or have already been discarded. More are discarded each year because the usefulness of these samples is not widely understood. Data from DNA derived from 10-35-year-old blood samples have been used to address the peopling of the New World and of the Pacific. Mitochondrial DNA haplotypes from studies using this source DNA support a single wave of migration into the New World (or a single source population for the New World), and that Mongolia was the likely source of the founding population. Data from Melanesia have shown that Polynesians are recent immigrants into the Pacific and did not arise from Melanesia.  (+info)

Folkecology and commons management in the Maya Lowlands. (2/125)

Three groups living off the same rainforest habitat manifest strikingly distinct behaviors, cognitions, and social relationships relative to the forest. Only the area's last native Maya reveal systematic awareness of ecological complexity involving animals, plants, and people and practices clearly favoring forest regeneration. Spanish-speaking immigrants prove closer to native Maya in thought, action, and social networking than do immigrant Maya. There is no overriding "local," "Indian," or "immigrant" relationship to the environment. Results indicate that exclusive concern with rational self-interest and institutional constraints do not sufficiently account for commons behavior and that cultural patterning of cognition and access to relevant information are significant predictors. Unlike traditional accounts of relations between culture, cognition, and behavior, the models offered are not synthetic interpretations of people's thoughts and behaviors but are emergent cultural patterns derived statistically from measurements of individual cognitions and behaviors.  (+info)

The early Upper Paleolithic human skeleton from the Abrigo do Lagar Velho (Portugal) and modern human emergence in Iberia. (3/125)

The discovery of an early Upper Paleolithic human burial at the Abrigo do Lagar Velho, Portugal, has provided evidence of early modern humans from southern Iberia. The remains, the largely complete skeleton of a approximately 4-year-old child buried with pierced shell and red ochre, is dated to ca. 24,500 years B.P. The cranium, mandible, dentition, and postcrania present a mosaic of European early modern human and Neandertal features. The temporal bone has an intermediate-sized juxtamastoid eminence. The mandibular mentum osseum and the dental size and proportions, supported by mandibular ramal features, radial tuberosity orientation, and diaphyseal curvature, as well as the pubic proportions align the skeleton with early modern humans. Body proportions, reflected in femorotibial lengths and diaphyseal robusticity plus tibial condylar displacement, as well as mandibular symphyseal retreat and thoracohumeral muscle insertions, align the skeleton with the Neandertals. This morphological mosaic indicates admixture between regional Neandertals and early modern humans dispersing into southern Iberia. It establishes the complexities of the Late Pleistocene emergence of modern humans and refutes strict replacement models of modern human origins.  (+info)

Why hunter-gatherer populations do not show signs of pleistocene demographic expansions. (4/125)

The mitochondrial DNA diversity of 62 human population samples was examined for potential signals of population expansions. Stepwise expansion times were estimated by taking into account heterogeneity of mutation rates among sites. Assuming an mtDNA divergence rate of 33% per million years, most populations show signals of Pleistocene expansions at around 70,000 years (70 KY) ago in Africa and Asia, 55 KY ago in America, and 40 KY ago in Europe and the Middle East, whereas the traces of the oldest expansions are found in East Africa (110 KY ago for the Turkana). The genetic diversity of two groups of populations (most Amerindian populations and present-day hunter-gatherers) cannot be explained by a simple stepwise expansion model. A multivariate analysis of the genetic distances among 61 populations reveals that populations that did not undergo demographic expansions show increased genetic distances from other populations, confirming that the demography of the populations strongly affects observed genetic affinities. The absence of traces of Pleistocene expansions in present-day hunter-gatherers seems best explained by the occurrence of recent bottlenecks in those populations, implying a difference between Pleistocene (approximately 1,800 KY to 10 KY ago) and Holocene (10 KY to present) hunter-gatherers demographies, a difference that occurred after, and probably in response to, the Neolithic expansions of the other populations.  (+info)

A finding of oligocene primates on the European continent. (5/125)

In this paper, we provide evidence that contrary to the current view, primates on the European continent did survive the dramatic extinction/origination event across the Eocene/Oligocene boundary 34 million years ago that severely affected the Eurasian mammal communities (the European "Grande Coupure" and the Asian "Mongolian Remodeling"). The survival of a mouse-sized omomyid for at least 2 million years, recorded in two localities of the Lower Stampian (Lower Oligocene) in a well dated stratigraphic series of fluviatile sediments in the north oriental sector of the Ebro Basin (Northeastern Spain), reflects the size-related survival pattern described recently for other coeval mammalian taxa.  (+info)

Mid-Pleistocene Acheulean-like stone technology of the Bose basin, South China. (6/125)

Stone artifacts from the Bose basin, South China, are associated with tektites dated to 803,000 +/- 3000 years ago and represent the oldest known large cutting tools (LCTs) in East Asia. Bose toolmaking is compatible with Mode 2 (Acheulean) technologies in Africa in its targeted manufacture and biased spatial distribution of LCTs, large-scale flaking, and high flake scar counts. Acheulean-like tools in the mid-Pleistocene of South China imply that Mode 2 technical advances were manifested in East Asia contemporaneously with handaxe technology in Africa and western Eurasia. Bose lithic technology is associated with a tektite airfall and forest burning.  (+info)

Reflexivity--a strategy for a patient-centred approach in general practice. (7/125)

Reflexivity as a strategy in general practice can be used to implement a patient-centred approach in the consultation. General practice has long represented a tradition attempting to integrate both illness and disease. For the GP, it is natural to focus on the patient's whole situation, and the GP's experience with patients is often based on a long-term relationship. Reflexivity implies having a self-conscious account of the production of knowledge as it is being produced. We believe that GPs can gain access to additional knowledge by consciously using reflexivity as a strategy in the consultation. In the present article, we discuss reflexivity in relation to the notions of empathy, personal experience and self-knowledge. By using reflexivity in order to rely on personal experience, the GP can gain access to patients' understanding of their health. Reflexivity can be a valuable concept for the GP in patient-centred medicine and can contribute to bridging the gap between the patient's perspective and the doctor's understanding of the patient's health.  (+info)

Stable isotope evidence for increasing dietary breadth in the European mid-Upper Paleolithic. (8/125)

New carbon and nitrogen stable isotope values for human remains dating to the mid-Upper Paleolithic in Europe indicate significant amounts of aquatic (fish, mollusks, and/or birds) foods in some of their diets. Most of this evidence points to exploitation of inland freshwater aquatic resources in particular. By contrast, European Neandertal collagen carbon and nitrogen stable isotope values do not indicate significant use of inland aquatic foods but instead show that they obtained the majority of their protein from terrestrial herbivores. In agreement with recent zooarcheological analyses, the isotope results indicate shifts toward a more broad-spectrum subsistence economy in inland Europe by the mid-Upper Paleolithic period, probably associated with significant population increases.  (+info)

Carolyn Fluehr-Lobban, Anténor Firmin and Haitis contribution to anthropology (1850-1911) - Anténor Firmin was an anthropologist who pioneered a critical study of race and physical anthropology and developed in his major work, De Légalité des races humaines..., a vision of anthropology as an integrated study of humanity. The publication date of 1885 of De Légalité des races humaines marks it as a pioneering text in anthropology and it is perhaps the first major work of anthropology written by a person of African descent. Although Firmins tome was lost to Francophone anthropology, it was recognized not only in Haiti but also among Pan-Africanist scholars as an early work of négritude. Anténor Firmin also had a seminal impact on Jean Price-Mars, the 20th century founder of Haitian ethnology, and these ties extend further to the American founder of African and Afro-American anthropology, Melville Herskovits.

Cyborg anthropology is a recent subspecialty launched at the Annual Meetings of the American Anthropological Association (AAA) in 1993. Within the AAA cyborg anthropology is associated with the Committee for the Anthropology of Science, Technology and Computing (CASTAC). From the start cyborg anthropologists have located themselves within the larger transdisciplinary field of Science and Technology Studies (STS), attending with frequency the annual meetings of the Society for the Social Studies of Science (SSSS) and applying cyborgian perspectives to a wide research spectrum that has ranged from the culture of physicists in Japan (Traweek 1988) to organ donation in Germany (Hogle 1999) to extended work on the new reproductive technologies. Anthropology, the study of humans, has traditionally concentrated on discovering the process of evolution through which the human came to be (physical anthropology), or on understanding the beliefs, languages, and behaviors of past or present human groups ...
Herbert S. Lewis. In Defense of Anthropology: An Investigation of the Critique of Anthropology. xvii + 244 pp., bibl., index. New Brunswick: Transaction, 2013. $69.95 (hardcover). For years, Herbert Lewis has defended classical anthropology (meaning here American cultural anthropology produced in the first half of the twentieth century) from postmodern and postcolonial critique. This volume collects eight of Lewiss essays on this subject, and also includes an original piece written especially for the volume. For those sympathetic with Lewiss claims, this volume will be welcome. However, Lewiss strident tone will probably not sway the unconvinced, much less those critical of classical anthropology.. Lewiss argument in these chapters is simple: Most criticisms of American cultural anthropology are misguided. Anthropologists never treated their research subjects as radically other, nor did they imagine cultures as ahistorical, isolated, homogenous units (chapter one). Franz Boas was a leftist ...
Anthropology is the study of the origin and development of the human species. Molecular anthropology uses the tools and techniques of molecular genetics to answer anthropological questions, especially those concerning the origins and spread of humans across the globe. These questions mainly fall under the heading of physical or biological anthropology, as opposed to cultural anthropology, which studies social relationships, rituals, and other aspects of culture.. ...

For over two decades I have maintained that generative anthropology is a new way of thinking that constitutes a qualitative change from traditional philosophical/metaphysical thought. I distinguish between a way of thinking and a personal doctrine of the kind elaborated by those whom Foucault called (no doubt with a touch of envy) masters of discursivity, namely, Marx and Freud. A Marxist is one dependent on Marxs model of human action, his anthropology, just as a Freudian is dependent on Freuds anthropology. And it is curious indeed that although many in both camps are proud to claim that they have revised the doctrines of their master, it is inconceivable that any such revision could transform either doctrine into a new, more fundamental anthropology.. The source of this impossibility lies in the fact that the anthropologies of Marx and Freud are derived, or more precisely, retrodicted from the specific foci, respectively economic and psychological, of their analyses of the modern world. ...

Many serious public health problems confront the world in the new millennium. Anthropology and Public Health examines the critical role of anthropology in four crucial public health domains: (1) anthropological understandings of public health problems such as malaria, HIV/AIDS, and diabetes;(2) anthropological design of public health interventions in areas such as tobacco control and elder care; (3) anthropological evaluations of public health initiatives such as Safe Motherhood and polio eradication; and (4) anthropological critiques of public health policies, including neoliberalhealth care reforms. As the volume demonstrates, anthropologists provide crucial understandings of public health problems from the perspectives of the populations in which the problems occur. On the basis of such understandings, anthropologists may develop and implement interventions to addressparticular public health problems, often working in collaboration with local participants. Anthropologists also work as ...
Anthropology is the study of humankind everywhere, throughout time. Anthropology involves the study of people, their origins, their biological variations and characteristics, their languages and cultural patterns, their social structures and institutions, and their adaptation to their environment. As stated on the American Anthropological Association website: Anthropological study provides training particularly well suited to the 21st century. The economy will be increasingly international; workforces and markets, increasingly diverse; participatory management and decision making, increasingly important; communication skills, increasingly in demand. Anthropology is the only contemporary discipline that approaches human questions from historical, biological, linguistic, and cultural perspectives. The intellectual excitement and relevance of the wide range of information presented in anthropology assures that students are engaged and challenged. Moreover, it complements other scientific and ...
A graduate minor in Anthropology usually consists of 12 units, but a few concentrations in anthropology require as many as 15 units (e.g., Medical Anthropology, SWLCS).
There are many academic careers for appropriately trained biological anthropologists. The most common and traditional job openings are found in anthropology departments in colleges and universities. University departments of genetics, zoology, and biology also offer potential employment. So do community colleges and professional schools. Many schools of medicine rely on biological anthropologists to teach the gross anatomy of the human body to medical and paramedical students. Currently, around one in eight American biological anthropologists has some professional affiliation with a medical school, usually in a department of anatomy.. A detailed appreciation of the range of jobs held by biological anthropologists can be gained by studying the membership directory of the AAPA, published every December in the American Journal of Physical Anthropology. To obtain an AAPA pamphlet providing additional details on careers in physical anthropology, contact the Chair of the AAPA Career Development ...

i think anthropology is a method for rendering epistemic perspectives intelligible; it has unfortunately wasted over a century fretting about what its unit of analysis is while masquerading as a discipline [whatever that is - Geertz only knows]. Far from being something with shrinking or even non-existent applicability, i believe this method will come increasingly into favor as disparate and rapidly changing assemblages of individuals need a way to hear or be heard in a way they may not be able to achieve otherwise. perhaps most importantly, though, is the recognition of the unidirectionality of flow that the hermeneutic character of this method has created - partially through institutional inertia and partially through the rebranding of colonial networks of domination - which can only lead to a reversal of such a flow of epistemic translative power. such an event can only be accomplished by an undisciplining of anthropology, and the initiation of a truly humanistic anthropology through ...
Cyborg anthropology poses a serious challenge to the human-centered foundations of anthropological discourse. The term cyborg anthropology is an oxymoron that draws attention to the human-centered presuppositions of anthropological discourse by posing the challenge of alternative formulations. While the skin-bound individual, autonomous bearer of identity and agency, theoretically without gender, race, class, region, or time, has served usefully and productively as the subject of culture and of cultural accounts, alternate accounts of history and subjectivity are also possible.[1] The autonomy of individuals has already been called into question by post-structuralist and posthumanist critiques. Cyborg anthropology explores a new alternative by examining the argument that human subjects and subjectivity are crucially as much a function of machines, machine relations, and information transfers as they are machine producers and operators. From this perspective, science and technology affect ...
HEIDI STANDEVEN University of Northern British Columbia (Michel Bouchard). Biolsi, Thomas. Bringing the Law Back In: Legal Rights and the Regulation of Indian-White Relations on Rosebud Reservation. Current Anthropology August-October, 1995 Vol.36(4):543-573.. In this article Thomas Biolsi argues that law is a mode of constituting both social relations and social meaning and law should therefore be seen as deeply imbricated in just about everything done in anthropology. Adopting such a stance moves legal anthropology from a subdiscipline to an important theory-building enterprise. Biolsi gives a concise overview of the evolution of Federal Indian Law since the 1940s. Early in this period the most important focus was upon landclaims under the Indian Claims Commission Act of 1946, while the focus since the 1970s has increasingly been upon Indian sovereignty.. Biolsi then moves into an examination of the two main areas of contention in Indian law in the United States, the first being state ...

Anthropology is the study of cultural differences and similarities in a globalised world. As a field of study anthropology is uniquely placed to interpret the widest range of contemporary social phenomena - from migration to religious fundamentalism, online communities and new social movements, contemporary indigenous cultural expression and identity politics, consumption and commodification, and many changing forms of social relationships. The School of Archaeology and Anthropology offers a diverse range of undergraduate courses which cover these themes and more.. The disciplines distinctive methodology, long-term ethnographic fieldwork, provides anthropologists with finely grained and in-depth understandings of complex social phenomena. With a commitment to a comparative and holistic framework, anthropologists treatment of cultural diversity provides insights into the different ways people comprehend their place in the world and relationships to each other, as well as new ways for us to ...

A review of the social movements literature reveals that social anthropologists have generally not played a prominent role in theoretical and conceptual debates within this field of research. This article argues that the invisibility of social movements in anthropology is largely attributable to the way in which political anthropology constructs its object, and particularly to the weakness of its concepts of politics and practice. It is concluded that the development of an anthropology of social movements will depend, therefore, on a more general re-orientation of the disciplines approach to politics.
The study of bureaucracy has become a standard prerogative of English-language anthropology in recent years. Long gone are the days when bureaucracy was considered the exclusive realm of political scientists and sociologists, in an intellectual division of labour where anthropology was assumed to be the study of non-bureaucratic societies. In addition to the anthropologists who have become centrally concerned with public bureaucracies (Matthew Hull, Laura Bear, Nayanika Mathur, Akhil Gupta, Colin Hoag, David Graeber to name a few), others have encountered the subject through a separate route, often in the form of paperwork circulating among their interlocutors or discourses reproduced about the state and its nebulous operations. The growing anthropological interest in bureaucracy might be a sign of our own times as Graeber argues, yet it is also a knowledge-making project with implications beyond the bounds of social anthropology, whether in other disciplines or in the wider public..

Sahana Udupa (Ludwig Maximilian University). Abstract. The digital turn in media anthropology signals the growing importance of digital media technologies in contemporary sociocultural, political and economic processes. This panel recognizes the digital turn as a paradigm shift in the anthropological study of media, and aims to foreground three important streams of exploration that constitute new directions in the anthropology of media.. The rise of online vitriol against vulnerable communities has punctured euphoric pronouncements about digital media as a radical enabler of grassroots democracy. A significant aspect of digital extreme speech is gender based violence in digital environments. Beyond the specific instances of online violence, gendering media anthropology remains a crucial and broader area of intervention. Similarly, different forms of digital visualities have accentuated the materialities that constitute everyday digital experiences and their varied cultural ramifications. ...
Medical anthropology is founded on an epistemological openness to alternative understandings of the body, illness, disease, and healing. It explores how health is at once a biological, social, and historical fact. Anthropology assumes a body that is both biologically given as well as culturally invented and historically situated so that we can even speak of local biologies. This course introduces methods of studying and understanding how the body, health, and healing are shaped by historical processes, political struggles and cultural meanings as well as the knowledge and power of expanding global biomedicine and biotechnologies. In offering a comparative perspective on human afflictions, suffering and healing in societies, we will explore the cultural and historical specificity of what appear to be biological givens, and do so by drawing from a variety of anthropological questions, theoretical approaches, and research methods. The course introduces both the specificity of local medical ...
Our division is one particular of only a few broad primarily based anthropology departments in the UK comprised of 4 sub-sections which includes Biological Anthropology , Social Anthropology , Material Culture and Health-related Anthropology Our teaching and investigation reflects the breadth and depth of this cross and interdisciplinary approach. Archaeological anthropologists are concerned with the evolution and historical adjustments to cultural and sociopolitical configurations, the materiality of human encounter, and the stewardship and interpretation of cultural heritage. Physical anthropology, frequently named biological anthropology, is the study of the physical development of the human physique and the human species (specially compared with other primates).. Intellectual community: The anthropology department gives a wealthy curriculum of much more than 40 courses open to graduate students. In most instances, the job of a forensic anthropologist is confined in a laboratory exactly where ...
In order to do this properly, it is necessary to abandon conventional national and regional classifications of research schools. The three Scandinavian countries, and Finland could also be included, have distinct academic histories, and sociocultural anthropology has slightly different priorities and identities in each country: Contemporary Swedish anthropology grew out of global explorations, European ethnology and more recent Anglo-American influences; Danish anthropology has a strong historical connection to ethnographic studies of Greenland and has been equally shaped by American and British anthropology; while Finnish anthropology has a dual, recent heritage in sociology and ethnology. The main current of Norwegian anthropology, by contrast, has since the late 1950s virtually been a branch of British social anthropology. Most Norwegian anthropologists can be considered matrilateral nephews and nieces of British social anthropologists anyway, with Fredrik Barth playing the part of the mother ...
Forensic anthropology entails applying anthropological research and techniques to medicolegal issues. There are three subfields within the field of forensic anthropology, including osteology (study of the bones), archeology (collection of human remains), and biological anthropology (study of changes to the body after death, including decomposition). One to determine the gender of remains is by examining the pelvis, which can be identified accurately ninety percent of the time. Another precise way to determine gender is to examine the skull. There are several features that can be used to determine the race of an individual. The zygomatic arch of the maxilla can be divided into three generic shapes: hyperbolic, parabolic, and rounded. Each of the following races have their own shape: African is a hyperbolic shape, European is a parabolic shape, and Asian is a rounded shape. There are key features of the skull that can be used to determine the race of an individual. Most of these features are ...

Offered as Anthropology 10 and Sociology 10.) The aim of this course is to provide an introduction to the central concepts and themes in the disciplines of anthropology and sociology. Anthropology and sociology emerged as distinct modes of inquiry in 19th-century Europe in response to several centuries of disorienting change. Monarchies were collapsing, economies were industrializing, modern science was emerging, and democratic aspirations were rising. Alongside this flux, Europes imperial reach had revealed a mind-boggling variety of cultures, each ordered and disordered in dramatically different ways. In this context, it is not surprising that two questions became urgent: Why do some societies change while others appear to be unchanging? When a society undergoes change, how does social order get re-established? These classic questions have long since been reframed to confront a fundamental challenge that we live with today: Why do people do what they do, and why do different people do things ...
SOAN 302. Anthropology and Indigenous Rights This seminar examines the relationship between culture and human rights from an anthropological perspective. By asking who are indigenous peoples? and what specific rights do they have? this course introduces students to a comparative framework for understanding cultural rights discourse. Given the history of intolerance to difference, the seminar demonstrates the need to explore the determinants of violence, ethnocide, and exploitation routinely committed against the worlds most marginalized peoples. At the same time, it also asks about the limits of tolerance, if human rights abuses are perpetrated under the banner of cultural pluralism. Students will analyze case studies drawn from Africa, Asia, and the Americas, as well as issues that cross-cut these regions. Prerequisite: Sociology and Anthropology 110, 111 or permision of the instructor; upper division coursework in anthropology, sociology, history or philosophy recommended. 6 cr., SS; SI, ...

This article examines the relation between the history of anthropology and human rights. It explains that anthropology first became connected with human rights in 1947 when the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) asked the American Anthropological Association (AAA) to write an advisory opinion on human rights during the drafting of what would become the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It also contends that the history of anthropologys relationship to human enables a better understanding of how and why human rights developed as they did.

chose the anthropology of masculinity and war, you could use Kristin Monroes article from the syllabus and then just find four other peer-reviewed articles in anthropology to look at. You could try searching for masculinity and war on jstor and use the search tools to limit your search results to anthropology and journal articles. Or you could use anthrosource, although I find their search algorithm to be fussier. Read the abstracts of numerous articles and choose the ones that are most relevant to your topic. Then double check that they were written by anthropologists or published in anthropology journals like Cultural Anthropology, American Anthropologist, or American Ethnologist.. Once you have found five anthropological articles that all focus on your topic, read through them all and try to figure out what you want to say about that particular literature. Remember, a literature review about the anthropology of masculinity and war is not just a paper on masculinity and war. Instead, you need ...

Dr. Biology: This is Ask a Biologist, a program about the living world, and Im Dr. Biology. What do century‑old mysteries, cold‑case files and bones have in common? While youre thinking about that, who are the people that help discover important clues and answers to unsolved cases when there is little left besides a skeleton or a few bones?. If you havent figured it out, were going to be entering the world of forensic anthropology. The forensic anthropologists, theyre people who can literally piece back together the bones of a person to help give them a name or tell how they died.. Now, if we go to popular culture, theres the television show Bones. This is where our forensic anthropologist is paired with an FBI agent. Like the character on the television show, the forensic anthropologist has become a key role in solving crimes, and helping to understand more about our history..

The Anthropology Collection is subdivided into Ethnology (historic Native American) and Archaeology (prehistoric Native American) holdings. The distinction between the two is an historical artifact that reflects the way scholars thought about such collections, i.e. recorded history (when the Europeans arrived) vs unwritten history (pre-European contact). From a tribal perspective the Anthropology Collection represents an unbroken continuum through time. In general, Ethnology holdings passed through human hands until they were donated, commissioned, or purchased by MNA. Archaeological holdings have been excavated or surface collected from sites by professional and amateur archaeologists.. Ethnology. MNAs ethnology collection (over 15,000 objects) contains significant Hopi and Navajo holdings with smaller holdings from Zuni and the Apache Bands. The collection also contains representative holdings from other Pueblo groups (Acoma, San Ildefonso, Santa Clara, etc.), and Havasupai and Colorado ...
The goal of this project is to track the relationships among PhDs in Physical Anthropology. Back in 2013, we were inspired by a paper by Elizabeth Kelley and Robert Sussman in the American Journal of Physical Anthropology, which presented genealogy data on field primatologists.

INTRODUCTION. Forensic anthropology is a relatively new scientific discipline, born at the intersection of physical anthropology and forensic medicine. It is usually defined as the application of physical anthropology methodology and techniques within the medico-legal context.1 Although considerable advances have been made within the discipline in recent years, numerous challenges still face its practitioners. The roots of forensic anthropology can be traced to research in the late 19th century, such as Alphonse Bertillones anthropometric system for human identification and the dubious discipline of criminal anthropology.2 Much closer to modern practices are several pioneering studies for identifying human remains carried out by anatomists and anthropologists such as Thomas Dwight and Harris Hawthorne Wilder.2 The rise and development of the discipline was strongly accelerated with the publication of Wolton M. Krogmans 1939 Guide to the Identification of Human Skeletal Material3 and by ...
Malta has moved from being a site of anthropological fieldwork to a location from where anthropological teaching and research is vigorously conducted. In the late 1950s, the islands political and religious culture was studied intensively by Jeremy Boissevain who proceeded to give occasional courses in anthropology in the late 1970s. In 1992, under the aegis of the Mediterranean Institute, the University instituted a full Honours Programme in the subject, expanded to post-graduate study facilities up to the PhD. In 2012, the Anthropology Division moved from the Mediterranean Institute to the Faculty of Arts as the Department of Anthropological Sciences, to reflect the broad-based, holistic, character of contemporary Anthropology. Apart from Socio-Cultural Anthropology, the Department is expanding into Biological, Evolutionary, and Medical Anthropology in both teaching and research. It still retains close links with the Mediterranean Institute however through joint events and the Journal of ...

Only those who practice structural analysis are aware of what they are actually trying to do: that is, to reunite perspectives that the narrow scientific outlook of recent centuries believed to be mutually exclusive: sensibility and intellect, quality and quantity, the concrete and the geometrical, or as we say today, the etic and the emic.[1]. In South America he showed that there are dual organizations throughout Amazon rainforest cultures, and that these dual organizations represent opposites and their synthesis. For instance, Gê tribes of the Amazon were found to divide their villages into two rival halves; however, the members of opposite halves married each other. This illustrated two opposites in conflict and then resolved.. Culture, he claimed, has to take into account both life and death and needs to have a way of mediating between the two. Mythology (see his several-volume Mythologies) unites opposites in diverse ways.. Three of the most prominent structural anthropologists ...
Laribacter hongkongensis is associated with community-acquired gastroenteritis and travelers diarrhea and it can reside in human, fish, frogs and water. In this study, we performed an in-depth annotation of the genes in its genome related to adaptation to the various environmental niches. L. hongkongensis possessed genes for DNA repair and recombination, basal transcription, alternative σ-factors and 109 putative transcription factors, allowing DNA repair and global changes in gene expression in response to different environmental stresses. For acid stress, it possessed a urease gene cassette and two arc gene clusters. For alkaline stress, it possessed six CDSs for transporters of the monovalent cation/proton antiporter-2 and NhaC Na+:H+ antiporter families. For heavy metals acquisition and tolerance, it possessed CDSs for iron and nickel transport and efflux pumps for other metals. For temperature stress, it possessed genes related to chaperones and chaperonins, heat shock proteins and cold shock

Today in the New England Journal of Medicine online, a study was published which describes the finding of a genetic cause of hypothyroidism. The effects of thyroid hormones manifest through their two different types of receptors: alpha and beta. This article considers a case study of a young girl whose hypothyroidism is caused by a nonsense mutation in genes encoding her alpha receptors rather than by abnormal levels of hormone production. The study used whole-exome sequencing to find this heterozygous genotype coding for a protein which inhibits the receptor. The article includes images and graphs showing the phenotypic traits and abnormalities manifested in this case by a mutation in receptor rather than hormone production. ...

A developmental perspective suggests that early childhood may be a critical time for the environment to irreversibly influence the number of oocytes or rate of follicular atresia and, ultimately, age at menopause. ObjectiveThis work aims to consider how the discipline of anthropology contributes to the study of menopause through evolutionary, developmental, and comparative perspectives. MethodsThis study was a review of skeletal and ethnographic evidence for menopause and postreproductive life in humans distant past, hypotheses for the evolution of menopause and long postreproductive life, variation in age at menopause with focus on childhood environments, and the study of variation in symptom experience across populations. ResultsLongevity, rather than capacity for menopause, sets humans apart from other primates. Skeletal evidence demonstrates that some Neanderthals and archaic Homo sapiens lived to the age at menopause and that at least one third of women in traditional foraging populations live
Philadelphia, Penn. (June 9, 2006) -- Using a revolutionary imaging process, a new study is revealing that wrinkles arent the only cue the human eye looks for to evaluate age. Scientists at the Ludwig-Boltzmann-Institute for Urban Ethology (Austria) and the Department for Sociobiology/Anthropology at the University of Goettingen (Germany), have shown that facial skin color distribution, or tone, can add, or subtract, as much as 20 years to a womans age. The study is to be presented at the Human Behavior and Evolution Society (HBES) annual meeting, June 7-11, 2006, in Philadelphia, PA. The study used 3-D imaging and morphing software technologies to remove wrinkles and bone structure from the equation to determine the true impact of facial skin color distribution on the perception of a womans age, health and attractiveness and is currently in the edit acceptance process with the journal Evolution and Human Behavior ...
Anger, D.C. The Micmacs of Newfoundland: A Resurgent Culture. Culture, 1981. 1(1): 79-81.. Within this article, Dorothy Angers discusses the Micmacs of Newfoundland and the two Micmac communities of Conne River and Cape Breton. She focuses on the Micmacs of Conne River and their struggle to maintain their heritage due to the cultural assimilation into the majority white society of Newfoundland. A direct assimilation of the Micmac identity was the British control of the Micmacs political, economic and cultural means.. The British attempted to remove the Micmacs from Newfoundland, but were unsuccessful. When Newfoundland joined Confederation in 1949, there were no special provisions for natives. It was not until 1973, that the Micmacs were finally designated as an Indian community. Cultural assimilation occurred through the clergy who suppressed the use of their language and undermined their traditional systems of government, their chief system. In addition, the encroachment of white settlements ...

BOOK REVIEWS. Missing & murdered. A personal adventure in forensic anthropology.. By Alan G Morris. Pp. vii + 240. Zebra Press. Cape Town. 2011. ISBN 978-1-77022 361-5.. The eminent Dutch palaeopathologist, P A Jannsens, in his 1970 book on the disease and injuries of prehistoric humans, described burr holes in the skulls of early humans (a process now known as trephination). Presumably, this was to treat conditions such as headaches, epilepsy, mental illness, migraine, and head wounds and injuries. The latter would have included relief of subdural and extradural haemorrhage; if so, it required considerable diagnostic and clinical skill. Trephination was common practice and the osteological evidence is that survival was high and the rate of infection low. All this would have contributed to the idea that early human hunter gatherers were a gentle, harmless people with considerable intellectual, language and artistic skills.. Alan Morris, in his recent book, public lectures and op-ed pieces, ...
