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)

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 ...
The primary focus of biological anthropology at UK is the human/environment interaction as it shapes population and individual well-being across space and through time. From this biocultural perspective we envision the adaptive environment inclusive of its natural, social, and cultural aspects. Students in biological anthropology will combine theory and method from biological, cultural, and archaeological anthropology to investigate questions of human wellbeing in contemporary, historic and prehistoric populations as evidenced through health and/or nutrition outcomes. Because scholarly interests of UK faculty coalesce around current themes in anthropology and the social sciences, biological students at UK are provided a unique opportunity to engage in cross-subdisciplinary work.. Students will be advised by Dr. Heather Worne, but will also work closely with cultural anthropology and archaeology faculty in the Department of Anthropology and in units and departments across the UK campus. ...
The mission of the Department of Anthropology at California State University, Chico, is to provide a holistic foundation to the study of anthropology through the four major subfields that include cultural anthropology, archaeology, biological anthropology, and linguistics, and a fifth area, museum studies..

As I had hardly any curiosity about the subject this book was a simple read and did a fantastic job of explaining the concepts as well as other subjects of physical and cultural anthropology. Would certainly recommend to anybody searching to begin researching the subject. It might be just a little fundamental for individuals whore already comfortable in the realm of Anthropology. Excellent. Great opening to Anthropology book. The sections are very well setup and also the book has great pictures, good examples, and figures. Its also among the simplest books to see. I purchased it used also it showed up in almost top condition. I recommend this book to the one taking an opening Anthropology class.

The Department requires that all Honours students consult with the Departmental Undergraduate Advisor in establishing the students fields of specialization within anthropology because this consideration is important in choosing suitable upper‑level courses within the department and suitable cognate courses offered by other departments.. Students choosing Anthropology as Major 1 or Major 2 may only count a maximum of 6 credit units of course work toward both Anthropology and the other discipline, with the exception of Archaeology in which all eligible courses may be double counted. (For example, students may choose to pursue a Double Honours in Anthropology and Psychology, in which case a maximum of 6 credit units of PSY courses may be counted in the Anthropology ...
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. ...

Evangelical Christians have long needed an introductory anthropology text designed especially for them, a text that introduces anthropological topics in ways understandable to the uninitiated, that takes Christians concerns into account, and that demonstrates contemporary anthropologys relevance to them as people living, ministering, and serving in increasingly complex and multi-cultural situations. Introducing Cultural Anthropology . . . addresses this need beautifully. . . . Drs. Howell and Paris are ideal authors of such a text, and their personal backgrounds make the book especially useful not only for those considering preparation for frontier mission at home and abroad, but also for those who would like an accessible introduction to how anthropology treats certain topics today. . . . [The book] is well organized, with a good selection of topics. . . . It is hard to think of another recent work by Christians that so effectively introduces contemporary anthropologys central concepts, that ...

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 ...

In each year of your degree you will take a number of individual modules, normally valued at 0.5 or 1.0 credits, adding up to a total of 4.0 credits for the year. Modules are assessed in the academic year in which they are taken. The balance of compulsory and optional modules varies from programme to programme and year to year.

He is the author or co-author of four current texts in anthropology as well as technical and popular articles.. ...
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 ...

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.

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 ...
Anthropology is a broad and diverse discipline that seeks to better understand the human species in terms of our cultural, behavioral and biological development through time. Towards this end, the field of anthropology includes comparisons with our closest living relatives - the lemurs, monkeys and apes that, together with us, constitute the zoological Order Primates.
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.

The anthropology of health. The second "school", that may be called anthropology of health (or anthropology of illness), is connected, above all, to a tradition that goes back to Marcel Mauss, and has in France its main place of origin and development (Augé, 1986; Augé and Herzlich, 1984; Laplantine, 1991; Le Breton, 2001). Augé (1986) argues, for this "school", that there is only one anthropology, that deals with different empirical objects (health, illness, religion, kinship) without dividing itself into "sub-disciplines" and asks if these different observation objects before the anthropological gaze, by the end of its construction effort, do not constitute a sole object of analysis.. This is a pertinent question. Following Augé, we should think not only about the contribution of anthropology to the field of health, but also how the anthropology of health and illness may help in thinking anew the object of anthropology. What is at stake is not only the ethnographic inventory of ...

Every year, leading social anthropologists meet in Manchester to debate a motion at the heart of current theoretical developments in their subject. Key Debates in Anthropology collects together the first six of these debates, spanning the period from 1988 to 1993. For each debate there are four principal speakers: one to propose the motion, another to oppose it, and two seconders. These debates give unprecedented insight into the process of anthropological theory in the making, as the many contributors both engage with each others positions and respond to wider intellectual currents of the time. The first debate addresses the disciplinary character of social anthropology: can it be regarded as a science, and if so, is it able to establish general propositions about human culture and social life? The second examines the concept of society, in relation to such terms as individual, community, nation and state. In the third debate the spotlight is turned on the concept of culture, and on the role of ...
CAETS and the history of anthropology. Why organise a conference to mark the centenary of Cambridge Anthropology Expedition to the Torres Straits? The best reason and our main one is to explore the possibilities for a rapprochement between anthropology and psychology by looking at a period and some individuals who were more open to collaboration between the disciplines than we have since become. But my task here is to examine the significance of CAETS for the subsequent development of social anthropology in Britain. It is widely acknowledged that the expedition was a turning point in the history of the discipline. If Victorian anthropology was largely conducted from the armchair, this event, above all, marked a turn to fieldwork in Britain. But if we ask what impact its participants have made on professional anthropologists and their students today, the answer is likely to be nil or negligible.. For the conventional wisdom is that modern British social anthropology was born without significant ...
Thursday, 19 June 2014, 6.00-7.30pm, Peltz Gallery, School of Arts, Birkbeck, 43 Gordon Square, London WC1H 0PD. In this talk, Roger Bartra will discuss his latest book Anthropology of the Brain: Consciousness, Culture and Free Will (2014), in which he explores the mysteries of the human brain. In the book, Bartra shows that consciousness is a phenomenon that occurs not only in the mind but also in an external network, a symbolic system. He argues that the symbolic systems created by humans in art, language, in cooking or in dress, are the key to understanding human consciousness. Placing culture at the centre of his analysis, Bartra brings together findings from anthropology and cognitive science and offers an original vision of the continuity between the brain and its symbolic environment.. Roger Bartra is Professor Emeritus at the University of Mexico (UNAM) and Honorary Research Fellow at Birkbeck, University of London. An anthropologist, sociologist, and respected public intellectual, he ...

Medical anthropology is playing an increasingly important role in public health. This course builds on basic concepts introduced in ANTH 2504 with an emphasis on the contributions of medical anthropological theories and concepts towards an understanding of complex health-related behavior. This course examines why public health policies and interventions are more likely to be effective if the beliefs and behavior of people are understood and taken into account. Some examples of particular health problems are examined, such as HIV/AIDS, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, malaria and other communicable and non-communicable diseases to show how an anthropological approach can contribute to both a better understanding of health and illness and to more culturally appropriate public health measures. ...
In Chapter 4, "Treating the Family", you focus on how the West Clinic team assumptions of normative family roles relate to explanatory models behind treatment decisions. Can you expand on how other normative assumptions contributed to treatment decisions?. M.B.: I think that a lot of the decisions about restoring functioning were motivated by ideas about what defines success in adolescence, and so a lot of the decisions were oriented toward, getting kids into college. There was a lot of talk about getting [them] into college and getting them back into their high-achieving tracks. Of course, sometimes I think the clinicians helped families and patients get off that track, and that was also part of what they did. But I think sometimes they were implicitly motivated by middle class values about education and achievement and success. In Chapter 5, you begin with a quote by George Beard about American nervousness "Without civilization there can be no nervousness…". In what ways does this quote ...

Anthropology is a field of study that deals with both the biological and cultural aspects of humanity. Its basic concerns include the organic evolution of the human species; the origin, development, and integration of customs, techniques, social relationships, and beliefs that define a way of life (or culture) of human social groups; and the interrelations among these biological and cultural factors in human behavior. The subject matter of anthropology is divided into four major areas of study: Anthropological Archaeology (ANTHRARC), Biological Anthropology (ANTHRBIO), Linguistic Anthropology, and Sociocultural Anthropology (ANTHRCUL). Biological Anthropology considers human evolutionary history, the causes of present genetic diversity, and biological aspects of human behavior. It uses the evidence and concepts of paleontology, primate studies, population genetics, growth and nutrition, and ecology. Anthropological Archaeology seeks to understand human behavior in the past, by examining the ...
At the start of 2015 Robert Bettinger published a book length account of Californian societies based on a large review of archaeological evidence (Bettinger 2015). The narrative describes a gradual reduction in social group size, linked to developments in technology and changes in the environment. Bettinger argues that these changes led to the widespread and prolonged existence of small non-hierarchical social groups he characterises as orderly anarchy. A symposium was organised at the 2015 Society for American Archaeologists conference to discuss the implications of Bettingers work and this suggests a widening interest in the archaeological use of anarchist theory.. Anarchic Archaeology in Britain and Ireland. Given the much greater separation between archaeology and anthropology that exists in Britain and Ireland than is found in America and Europe it is perhaps unsurprising that developments in anarchic anthropology have attracted little attention. Earlier this year I published a short ...

... (Greek ανθρωπος [anthropos]-man, λογος [logos]-discourse, science)-an explanatory interpretation of the human being, man, and his essentially human action.. RELIGIOUS AND PHILOSOPHICAL SOURCES. Philosophical anthropology has sources in religious and philosophical traditions. In the Old Testament and New Testament we find mention of mans origin and his essentially human actions. According to Mosaic-Christian revelation, mans origin is connected with Gods creative action: "God created man in his own image, in the image of God He created him: he created man and women" (Gen 1, 27). Man who is created by God is a unity of Body (Basar) and spirit (Nephesh). The unity of man in the books of Machabees I (not without some influence from the Greek thought of the Hellenistic period) seems to take the form of a dualism of soul and body, for the killing of the body does not reach the soul which still lives. In the New Testament the role of the soul and its life is ...

BROOKS LETCHWORTH Southern Illinois University-Carbondale (Jonathan Hill). Ribeiro, Darcy. The Culture-Historical Configurations of the American Peoples Current Anthropology, Vol.11, No. 4/5 (Oct.-Dec., 1970), 403-434. Ribeiro gives a detailed account of the historical events that have led to the present-day cultures of the people of the Americas. Ribeiro sees that as different technological revolutions occurred, these changes had dramatic affects on the people that developed them, incorporated them, or were forced to undertake these new technological advancements. The term advancement is used to signify that these revolutions were part of "civilizational processes" or steps in the evolution of humans. These advancements can alter a societies entire understanding of the world around them. The incorporation (self-inspired or forced) of new technologies and people bring about a fusion of culture, religion, and worldview, all of which occurred to the people that came across them. These people were ...
Q: What led you to a career in anthropology? A: As I was selecting courses for my first semester of college, I pored over the bulletin - which in those days took the form of a large paperback volume - looking for subjects I had not had a chance to study in high school. Anthropology spoke to me because it explores the richness and diversity of human worlds. Since I was eight years old, the power of culture to shape our understandings of ourselves and others has fascinated me.. A third grader during the Cold War, I accompanied my parents to a neighbors cocktail party in honor of a physician visiting from the USSR. To my surprise, I was terrified of the Russian doctor, not because of anything said in my family but because I had crouched during drills, hands over head, beneath my school desk. The physician must have seen fear in my face; he gently invited me to sit next to him, drew out his wallet, and showed me photos of his wife and children. Just a father, like my own, I realized. I marveled at ...

This book 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) the 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 neoliberal health care reforms. 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 address particular public health problems, often working in collaboration with local participants. Anthropologists also work as evaluators, examining the activities of public health institutions and the successes and failures of public health programs.
NATHANIEL MARSH Oberlin College (Jack Glazier). Chance, John. The Noble House in Colonial Puebla, Mexico: Descent, Inheritance, and the Nahua Tradition. American Anthropologist. September, 2000. Vol. 102(3):485-502.. In this article John Chance utilizes historical data and records in order to examine lineage in the Puebla-Tlaxcala Valley in colonial central Mexico, specifically focusing on the Nahua teccalli, or the noble house, which was central to sociopolitical organization in pre-colonial and early colonial central Mexico. Anthropologists have traditionally used lineage theory to describe social organization within communities; this theory suggests that a group of people trace their heritage to common ancestry. Chance argues that this theory is limited because it excludes cultural variables and ideas of kinship and thus it is not applicable to all societies. As such, Chance maintains that previous accounts of the Nahua noble house are problematic and contradictory because they have examined ...
Orbital index (OI) expresses the proportion of the orbital height to the orbital width and varies with race, regions within the same race and periods in evolution. This index is useful in forensic medicine, anthropology and surgery. However, the average OI among Ghanaian adults was unknown. The aim of this study was to determine the orbital index of adult Ghanaians and classify them under one of the three predetermined groups. The study design was a retrospective cross-sectional. A systematic random sampling method was used for selecting 350 adult Ghanaian head computed tomography images available from 1 January to 31 December 2015 at KBTH Hospital. The orbital height and orbital width of each orbit were measured on a 3D CT skull. Data was analysed using Microsoft Excel and Statistical Package for Social Sciences version 20. The study had more females than men (167, 47.71%, vs 183, 52.29%). The observed orbital index of Ghanaians in the study was 81.22 ± 4.22. The mean orbital index was 80.52 ± 4.66
SM: Welcome, Dr. Watkins. Rachel Watkins: Thank you.. SM: So, Dr. Watkins, how can we as anthropologists, start to trace the history of this concept? RW: Well, as a biological anthropologist Im connected personally to the discipline that is largely-or its noted as being-largely responsible for the concept, in that the scientists who ushered in biological anthropology as a profession, as well as a discipline, were largely anatomists and doctors who believed in this notion of essential difference between groups of people. So, in other words, the kind of surface level differences-skin color, hair texture, what have you-were attributed a level of significance that really kind of belies their biological power, in that people are not reducible to these traits that we think of as racial. They all reflect biological possibilities that we all have.. SM: Okay, and what was the time period, or the context, in which these ideas about fundamental human difference on the basis of appearance became popular? ...

This book collects the published articles of Dr. Marjorie Topley, who was a pioneer in the field of social anthropology in the postwar period. Her ethnographic research in Singapore and Hong Kong sets a high standard for urban anthropology. Dr. Topleys publications reflect her training in British social anthropology, with its focus on fieldwork and detailed empirical observation. She was among the first to refine and extend those methods in the 1950s, adapting them to the study of modernizing urban settings like Singapore and Hong Kong. Her ethnographic research on the Great Way of Former Heaven sectarian movement and Cantonese womens vegetarian halls in Singapore in the 1950s was an early contribution to the study of sub-cultural groups in a complex urban society, and she asked insightful questions about the relationship between religion, secularism, and modernity. She also broke new ground in the field of Chinese medical anthropology.

Grad school in the social sciences/humanities is structured to breed professors, and specifically, it tends to specialize your knowledge more and more the further you go. My other advice would be to read through a lot of the current major anthropology journals - American Anthropologist, etc. See what kind of articles really grab at you. Can you imagine doing that kind of research, writing, presenting at conferences, etc. for YEARS? Remember that grad school is preparing you for a dissertation - an extremely narrow topic within a narrow subfield. Your dissertation then becomes kind of your brand - you apply for postdocs and then professor positions based on one very narrow slice of the field that is your specialty. After youve written several articles, or a book (years and years of research) on one very narrow slice, you might build up enough cachet in the academic community for you to have the leisure to say OK, Im going to study something totally different now ...
One of the ways that physical anthropologists learn about people is to study our nearest living relatives - primates. Primates include any member of the group of animals that includes human beings, apes, and monkeys. Learning about how primates navigate their world helps us understand the challenges and survival strategies that humans had to face in the past.. Primatologists, or specialists who study primates, are especially interested in learning how primates address one of the biggest issues that we all face: how to feed your family. Each primate species has a different from of social organization, although all primate species have to figure out how to survive against the odds. Factors that figure in to those odds include the proximity of other groups, competition for resources, the availability of high-calorie foods, and the need to protect the sensitive members of ones group from predators.. This weeks activity pitted student groups against each other in a Meddling Monkeys Scavenger Hunt. ...

Whether you are 15 years old or 52, crime drama can be appealing. It puts some people on the edge of their seat, asking "Who did it?" However, crime scene investigations are not limited just to the worlds of "CSI" and "Law and Order," as Ohio State has its very own team investigating working with crime scene investigations.. The Forensic Anthropology Case Team was founded in 2004 by Sam Stout, an anthropologist and professor at OSU. FACT partners with law enforcement to investigate and solve murders in Ohio, its most recent case being the ongoing Innis Park murders.. FACT is comprised of OSU faculty, as well as undergraduate, graduate and doctorate students whose primary area of study is anthropology. Alexis Dzubak, a doctorate student and team leader of FACT, explained that while building a relationship with law enforcement is not a static process, it has been very close with the city of Columbus and specifically its cold case unit for quite some time.. "Thats the nature of the game - its the ...
Australia was probably settled soon after modern humans left Africa, but details of this ancient migration are not well understood. Debate centers on whether the Pleistocene Sahul continent (composed of New Guinea, Australia, and Tasmania) was first settled by a single wave followed by regional divergence into Aboriginal Australian and New Guinean populations (common origin) or whether different parts of the continent were initially populated independently. Australia has been the subject of relatively few DNA studies even though understanding regional variation in genomic structure and diversity will be important if disease-association mapping methods are to be successfully evaluated and applied across populations. We report on a genome-wide investigation of Australian Aboriginal SNP diversity in a sample of participants from the Riverine region. The phylogenetic relationship of these Aboriginal Australians to a range of other global populations demonstrates a deep common origin with Papuan New ...
The undergraduate major in Forensic Science is designed to provide students from varied backgrounds and academic interests with the information to identify their forensic science. Although the natural and physical sciences are emphasized, this major is the gateway to discovering forensic applications (who knew there were forensic veterinarians?). If pursued as structured, this curriculum is preparation for a baccalaureate-level career in law enforcement and evidence analysis or as preparation for advanced degrees in those forensic sciences which require it (such as forensic anthropology or pathology).. This interdisciplinary program draws on resources from several departments including Anthropology, Biology, Chemistry, Criminal Justice, Physics, and Psychology, to name a few, in order to provide students with access to or awareness of the broad extent of the forensic sciences.. The Evidence Technician Track is recommended for those interested in law enforcement careers involving evidence ...

AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PHYSICAL ANTHROPOLOGY 74~473-493(1987) Comparative Study of Normal, Crouzon, and Apert Craniofacial Morphology Using Finite Element Scaling Analysis JOAN T.RICHTSMEIER Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland 21205 KEY WORDS Apert syndrome, Crouzon syndrome, Shape, Size ABSTRACT Finite element scaling analysis is used to study differences in morphology between the craniofacial complex of normal individuals and those affected with the syndromes of Apert and Crouzon. Finite element scaling quantifies the differences in shape and size between forms without reference to any fixed, arbitrary registration point or orientation line and measures the amount of form change required to deform one object into another. Twodimensional coordinates of landmarks digitized from annual sets of cephalometric radiographs were used in the analysis. A simple tabulation shows no difference in variances between the normal and ...
11/27/2012. Stephen Hirtle, Professor at the iSchool, authored a chapter in the recently-published "Handbook of Spatial Cognition" (American Psychological Association, 2013). The volume provides an introduction to spatial cognition, a branch of cognitive psychology that explores how people gain and use knowledge about their environment to identify where they are, to locate resources, and to determine how to reach a specific location. Spatial Cognition touches on many disciplines and areas of inquiry including neuroscience, psychology, computer science, geography, sociology, architecture, anthropology, philosophy and information sciences. Dr. Hirtles work looks at the building of computational models in spatial cognition to support the understanding of cognitive mechanisms, defining parameters, and testing empirical results. He provides an overview of the development of such models and the nature of modeling. He then details the diversity of approaches to modeling spatial cognition: qualitative ...
