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 ...
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 ...

Forensic anthropology used in the context of human rights cases has come to the forefront in the past two decades as an essential part of peace support operations (PSOs), international and national tribunals and of special commissions of inquiry and other types of investigations following large-scale human rights abuses. This chapter focuses on what forensic anthropology is, how it has developed and how it can contribute to peace support efforts relative to its application in the investigation of human rights abuses, using the Argentine case as an example. It commences with a brief introduction, and then illustrates the Argentine case and the work of the Argentine Forensic Anthropology Team (EAAF). The chapter then explains the strategies adopted to conduct the investigations and provide guidelines that may be adopted during investigations conducted in PSOs. Finally, it presents some recommendations based on the experiences of EAAF and the authors.Keywords: ...

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.. My guest today is Tony Falsetti, a forensic anthropologist and Professor of Practice in the Math and ...
Sometimes a forensic anthropologist is presented with remains for analysis, but sometimes a case starts when a forensic anthropologist is contacted by law enforcement to look for remains that have been scattered on the ground or to search for a body buried in a clandestine grave (or multiple bodies in a mass grave). Many environmental clues may reflect the location of a clandestine grave, and forensic anthropologists are typically trained to identify them. Forensic anthropologists use modified archaeological techniques to recover remains and associated evidence from surface scatters and clandestine graves.. Forensic anthropology casework may begin with determining whether or not remains are human or nonhuman (i.e., from other animals). If the remains are determined to be human, they will be assessed and measured in order to develop a biological profile of the deceased. This means attempting to estimate the approximate age of the individual from bones and teeth, and-if the remains are those ...

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 ...
Sociology today still remains in the shadow of its origin. As Levine (1995) has pointed out, sociology has always continued to return to its history and all the major schools have elaborated trajectories of their own history. So the story of the emergence of sociology is often inseparable from the attempt to define sociology.. In the most general sense sociology arose as a mode of knowledge concerned with the moral problems of modernity. The origins of sociology go back to the discovery of the existence of the social as a specific reality independent of the state and the private domain of the household. The eighteenth century marks the emergence of social theory as a distinctive form of intellectual inquiry and which gradually becomes distinguished from political theory. The decline of the court society and the rise of civil society suggested the existence of the ...
Different tasks in forensic anthropology require the use of three-dimensional models of forensic objects (skulls, bones, corpses, etc) captured by 3D range scanners. Since a whole object cannot be completely scanned with a single image, multiple scans from different views are needed to supply the information to construct the 3D model. Range image registration methods study the accurate integration of the different views acquired by range scanners, with pair-wise approaches progressively processing every adjacent pair of scanned views until reconstructing the whole 3D model of the object. Our proposal is based on the adaptation of our previous work (Cordon et al, IEEE Conference on Evolutionary Computation, pp 2738-2744, 2005 in Pattern Recognit Lett 27(11); 1191-1200, 2006) in order to apply the scatter search evolutionary algorithm to pair-wise image registration in forensic anthropology applications. To measure the performance of this adaptation, we design an experimental ...

The sociology of health and illness, alternatively the sociology of health and wellness, examines the interaction between society and health. The objective of this topic is to see how social life affects morbidity and mortality rate, and vice versa. This aspect of sociology differs from medical sociology in that this branch of sociology discusses health and illness in relation to social institutions such as family, employment, and school. The sociology of medicine limits its concern to the patient-practitioner relationship and the role of health professionals in society. The sociology of health and illness covers sociological pathology (causes of disease and illness), reasons for seeking particular types of medical aid, and patient compliance or noncompliance with medical regimes. Health, or lack of health, was once merely attributed to biological or natural ...
Sociology explores patterns of human social life and examines the development, structuring, and organization of societies in all their historical and current diversity. Sociologists seek to understand how people live, think, feel, and believe in the ongoing processes that maintain and shift society and culture. Through understanding the social forces, structures and relationships that shape our world, sociology allows us to see why and how things are as they are, and how everything could be otherwise. Sociology is therefore central to understanding institutions, organizations, social policy, inequality, privilege, social problems and social change. Memorials Department of Sociology has research strengths in the sociology of work, occupational health, immigration, culture, theory, gender, sexuality, technology and society, political ...
The ethnography of local Christianities in the light of differing cultural and social situations including colonial conditions. The relationship between Christianity and the discipline of anthropology. The course examines a number of anthropological and historical studies of local forms of Christianity, from a range including local forms of Catholicism, Mormonism, contemporary and historical Protestantisms including American Protestant forms and heretical and other unorthodox Christianities. The course asks why anthropologists shied away from analysing Christianity long after studies of other world religions, such as Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism, had become widely established. It looks at the relationship between Christianity and the history of anthropological thought, and locates the place of Christianity in the writings of Mauss, Durkheim, Foucault and others, in order to defamiliarise the religion which Europeans and Americans especially often take for granted. Issues ...
Introduction. The relationship between sociology and other social sciences Sociology can be defined as the science that deals with human relationship. It is the study of how human beings relate with each other, how each individual relationship has been influenced by other people and the patterns which are formed out of their interactive relationships. Sociology emphasizes group relationships and total social environment. ...read more. Middle. The focus of the economist is on the production, distribution and consumption of goods and services.

llana Löwy Harvard University Press, £26.50, pp 370 ISBN 0 674 06809 2. Many years ago, a friend who had just been interviewed by a sociologist said, more in sorrow than in anger, "She didnt seem interested in what I did." What he meant was that he spent much of his day calculating the energies of subatomic particle interactions, and the sociologist never asked him anything about that. This was "technical stuff," and, while you might not expect a sociologist know much about such things, this was what my friend was trained to do and what gave him his identity as a scientist of a certain kind. So, even if it was understandable that sociologists might choose to pass by on the other side of the technical, a sociology of science without the science still seemed an odd sort of enterprise.. About 25 years ago, sociologists began to agree: sociologists had to become "ethnographers," hanging out where knowledge was made and learning the culture of those places. Science was still to be understood in ...
The "impact factor" of a journal is a measure of the frequency which an average article in the journal is cited within a specified period of time. Obviously higher impact journals are "better" than lower impact journals in their visibility and their overall professional influence. The problem with this and similar measures is in the measurement. The data are produced by Thomson Reuters, an organization whose database includes only a small number of archaeology journals. So if most of our journals are not included in the calculations, how useful is this measure? Also, the calculations do not include citations in books and book chapters, which seriously disadvantages the humanities in comparison with the sciences. This largely explains why, within anthropology, physical anthropology journals have much higher impact scores than journals in cultural anthropology (with archaeology in between). If you want to read more about impact factors, Ill put some citations ...

A report by Dr Andrew Bartlett, Sociologist from the University of Sheffield. Last November, I visited the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus to attend the Epigenomics of Common Disease conference. I hadnt been to the campus in years, not since my PhD research on the organisation of the Human Genome Project, and again I was there to do research. This time to study epigenetics; as a body of knowledge, as a research community, as a source of claims about what the future might hold.. How epigenetics sheds new light on the link between health inequalities and socioeconomic status. I have a background in genetics and am one of a team of sociologists working on a Leverhulme Trust funded project, "How Does Inequality Get Under The Skin?

Technically, according to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, coulrophobia is a subcategory of clinical phobias, resulting in extreme, persistent fear of anxiety whenever exposed to clowns or clown imagery and causing "significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.". To anyone diagnosed with this frightening affliction on any level, costumed clowns from Bozo and the Joker to Ronald McDonald and Pennywise can instantly trigger panic.. SYFY WIRE sat down with noted sociologist Dr. Margee Kerr inside the haunted halls of Pennsylvanias historic Eastern State Penitentiary to dissect just how weve developed such an unwarranted fear of clowns, how they strike us on a neurological level, their distorted bodily features, and how they drop us deep into the Uncanny Valley, colorful bouquet of happy balloons or not.. ...

Abstract: This study measures social vulnerability in the United States Virgin Islands while testing the applicability of a Social Vulnerability Index that was developed for the United States. The main focus was to develop an understanding of the underlying social processes that cause certain people and places to be more vulnerable than others. Using subdistrict level data derived from the 2000 United States Census of Island Areas, a Principle Components Analysis was conducted that identified eight components of vulnerability that accounted for 93.42% of the variance among vulnerability indicator variables in the dataset. The component scores were summed using an additive model to create an index score of vulnerability for each subdistrict within the islands of St. Croix, St. John and St. Thomas. A comparative assessment of social vulnerability among subdistricts was conducted in a Geographic Information System. By mapping both the ...
Introduction. 90% of all people with eating disorders (such as Anorexia and Bulimia) are female (British Medical Association 2008) How might a sociologist account for the high incidence of eating disorders among women? Eating disorders can only be applied to people who have the option to eat, generally they live in a society with an abundance of food, such as the United Kingdom or the United States, but they choose to control their intake of food to a dangerous level. Although eating disorders are considered to be mental illnesses there are several contributing, social and cultural, factors from the external world which drives people to want to achieve a slim body. In post modern society the common appearance of an attractive woman was one of a larger woman because being slim was a sign of insufficient nutrition and poverty. The idea of a slender figure originated in the late nineteenth century within middle-class women. Anorexia was first reported in 1874 in France but it did not become ...
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 ...
Sociologists examine subjects encompassing a vast array of human behavior: crime and punishment, the formation and dissolution of families, bureaucracy in organizations, conflicts between classes, and global inequalities. Sociology focuses on the way individuals lives are embedded within multiple social contexts that facilitate and constrain the range of possible actions. These contexts include generation, occupation, gender, religion, sexual orientation, family, health, nation, race, and ethnicity among many others. Students study and examine these phenomena with a variety of scientific tools, including collecting and analyzing statistical data and conducting surveys, focus groups, and in-depth interviews.. As a Sociology major at Western, students learn how humans behave and interact in groups - whether small groups like families or large groups like religious organizations, and how ones position in the larger society shapes life chances ...

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?

Research Interest: Physical Anthropology, Human Osteology, Stature Estimation, Paleopathology, Forensic Anthropology, Bone Trauma, Bone Biomechanics.. PhD Research:. PhD Research: My current enthusiasm is linked to bone trauma analysis which was sparked by the research conducted for my masters dissertation on blunt force trauma analysis and the reconstruction of the circumstances of death from human skeletal remains. While working on this topic I came to acknowledge that several issues related to bone trauma analysis are still not properly clarified in the literature. In a forensic investigation, there are still considerable limitations in the assessment of the manner of death from human skeletal remains analysis, namely in distinguishing an accidental from a suicidal or homicidal fall ...

AS Fyromians are the younger or even in processes of becoming an ethnic formation, as this process still goes on.....Bulgarian ethnic affiliation was formed in the midst of Ottoman empire during 18-19 century ad among the Christian Slavonic speaker from the central Balkans. It is impossible to claim continuity between medieval Bulgarian kingdom from 7-14th century AD and the revived "Bulgarian" nation, that came into being back from the dead during the national revival in 19th century. I write it as an Bulgarian. There is no historical mentioning of bulgars/Bulgarians for the period 14-end of 18th century, as the Slavonic speakers of central Balkans identified themselves simply as "seliane-hristiyani" - "Christian farmers/villagers".

Several reasons have been posed against the existence of conscience. Let us criticize them:. 1- The function of the conscience is not general: Some believe that if the conscience were universally original - in other words, if all human beings possessed it - why does it not show in all of them? Could anyone imagine someone like Genghis Khan having a conscience?. We must respond by saying that there are many instincts in humans about which people are highly diverse in possessing, using and fulfilling, such as the sexual instinct, emotions, curiosity and lots of others. Even the absence of some non-instinctive mental activities or a spiritual phenomenon cannot imply that an individual is basically devoid of it.. 2- Differences in the functions of the conscience in human beings: Some say that if the conscience is to be original, why is there so much diversity among people in its functions? Various functions for the conscience cannot defy its existence, as the existence of brutally savage human ...
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 ...

Unlike most teeth, which erupt in childhood, "wisdom teeth" (also known as "third molars") generally appear between the ages of 17 and 25. Linguists believe these teeth received the nickname of "wisdom teeth" because they appear later in life than other teeth - at an age when a person has matured into a young adult.. So why do we have wisdom teeth? Anthropologists point to our ancient ancestors for the explanation.. Ancient civilizations had very different diets than we do today. Instead of driving to the grocery store, our early ancestors hunted and gathered whatever food they came across in nature.. Snacking on raw foods such as leaves, roots, nuts, and meats was hard on their teeth! In those days, dental hygiene was poor, and tooth loss was common.. By the time a person had reached his or her 20s, it was not unusual to have lost a tooth or two to decay. Without enough teeth, ancient people would not have been able to chew the foods they found and risked starvation.. Anthropologists believe ...
AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PHYSICAL ANTHROPOLOGY 140:442-453 (2009) Differential Diagnosis of Mastoid Hypocellularity in Human Skeletal Remains Stefan Flohr,1,2* Uwe Kierdorf,1 and Michael Schultz2 1 2 Department of Biology, University of Hildesheim, 31141 Hildesheim, Germany Department of Anatomy, Georg-August-University, 37075 Göttingen, Germany KEY WORDS mastoid process; otitis media; paleopathology; temporal bone pneumatization ABSTRACT Mastoid hypocellularity is frequently used as an indicator of chronic otits media in paleopathological investigations. The condition can be caused by a poor development of air cells during infancy and early childhood (primary hypocellularity) or by obliteration of air cells with bone during later life (secondary hypocellularity). We performed a macroscopic, radiographic, and microscopic study of pneumatization patterns in 151 mastoid processes of individuals from an early-medieval cemetery in Germany, with emphasis on the architecture of the nonpneumatized ...
Cambridge, September 6, 2011 - Trash is a nuisance and a problem, but archaeologists treasure it as a key to the question: how did people of the past live their daily lives? Trash has caused villages, towns, and even cities to rise vertically and spread horizontally. It has provided a means to understand the dynamic history of those settlements and their place in the landscape.. The Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology presents the free lecture, "Garbage: The Archaeologists View of Trash," on Thursday October 6 at 5:30 P.M. at the Geological Lecture Hall (24 Oxford St., Cambridge). The lecture will be followed by a public reception at the Peabody Museum (11 Divinity Ave.).. The speaker is Richard H. Meadow, Director of the Peabody Museums Zooarchaeology Laboratory and Senior Lecturer on Anthropology, Harvard University.. This illustrated lecture will look at ancient trash through an archaeological lens, discussing trash generation, deposition, and preservation, and how recycling and ...
Among the ongoing battles in anthropology and paleontology since the mid-Nineteenth Century to now, is the distinction between the Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon Man. Specifically this devolves down to what happened to the Neanderthals, since the fossil record appears to show their extinction about 20,000 years ago. My assumption is that most readers are familiar with a lot of this material. It is easily attainable through Google or Wiki. What I find most interesting in this ongoing debate is the impact that Social Darwinism might have played in the original depiction of Neanderthals and in the assumptions made by some scientists about this species.. "Social Darwinism is a term used for various late nineteenth century ideologies predicated on the idea of survival of the fittest.[1] It especially refers to notions of struggle for existence being used to justify social policies which make no distinction between those able to support themselves 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 ...

Knuckle-walking is a form of quadrupedal walking in which the forelimbs hold the fingers in a partially flexed posture that allows body weight to press down on the ground through the knuckles. In technical terms, knuckle-walking is locomotion with the manus (Latin for hand) distally flexed on contact with the substratum. Gorillas and chimpanzees use this style of locomotion as do anteaters and platypuses. Anthropologists once thought that the common ancestor of chimpanzees and humans engaged in knuckle-walking, and humans evolved upright walking from knuckle-walking: a view thought to be supported by reanalysis of overlooked features on hominid fossils. Since then, scientists discovered Ardipithecus ramidus, a human-like hominid descended from the common ancestor of chimpanzees and humans. Ar. ramidus engaged in upright walking, but not knuckle-walking. This leads scientists to conclude that chimpanzees evolved knuckle-walking after they split from humans 6 million years ago, and humans evolved ...

Growth hormone (GH) secretion affects bone and cartilage physiology. This study investigated the effect of GH on the size of the craniofacial structures and their angular relationship. Three different models of mice with a genetically altered GH axis were used: GH excess (giant), dwarf GH antagonist (dwarf-Ant), and dwarf GH receptor knockout (dwarf-KO) mice. Each model was compared with the corresponding wild type (Wt). Five craniofacial distances were analysed: craniofacial length, upper face height, mandibular anterior height, mandibular ramus length, and mandibular corpus length. In addition, upper and lower incisor lengths and four angular relationships, nasal bone with cranial base, maxillary plane with cranial base, mandibular plane with cranial base, and the angle of the mandible, were determined. Data were analysed by one-way ANOVA.. Craniofacial length, upper face height and mandibular corpus length were significantly increased in the giant mice and significantly reduced in the dwarf ...
The six Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries (namely Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and U.A.E.) have exhibited considerable cooperation in the past for deepening the process of economic integration, and there is an animated debate in the academic and policy circles as to whether the integration process can be intensified and carried forward so that eventually a common currency could replace the six national currencies by the year 2010 ** . The academic debate on optimum currency area suggests that individual countries at times may be better off just by joining hands to have a single currency, instead of each having its own currency. For several countries to constitute such an optimum currency area, however, they must satisfy certain preconditions; i.e., they must have similar economic structures with exposure to symmetric shocks, they must be open economies, well diversified and must also ensure high degree of factor mobility. In the context of this theoretical debate, this paper aims at

title:Ponticulus Posticus of the Atlas Vertebra. Author:Ojaswini Malukar, Vipul.P.Prajapati, S.K.Nagar. Keywords:Arcuate foramen, Atlas vertebra, Ponticulus posticus, Vertebral artery. Type:Original Article. Abstract:Atlas is the first cervical vertebra. It articulates with the occipital bone above and the axis vertebra below. It plays an important role in movement of the skull and the neck. A rare variation of the atlas vertebra is found where the posterior arch of the atlas had one accessory foramen just behind each lateral mass. In the atlas vertebra, this retroarticular canal or the lateral bridge are examples of bony outgrowths which may cause external pressure on the vertebral artery as it passes from the foramen transversarium of the vertebra to the foramen magnum of the skull. The knowledge of this variation may be of importance to orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, radiologists and anthropologists. Of the 80 atlas vertebrae observed 17.5 % showed presence of retro transverse groove or ...

Through its membership in the American School of Prehistoric Research, Wesleyan received over 1500 lithic and bone artifacts from the cave sites of el-Wad, Tabun, Skhul and Kebara, located on the western slope of Mount Carmel in Israel. These sites were occupied by Neanderthals and early modern humans, with the oldest layers in the caves dating back to ca. 400,000 years ago. The artifacts originate from some of the earliest systematic excavations at these sites, carried out jointly by the American School and the British School of Archaeology in Jerusalem in the late 1920s and 1930s. Much of this work was done under the direction of pioneering prehistoric archaeologist Dorothy Garrod and her largely female-led excavation teams. Wesleyans collection contains artifacts from successive layers of the deeply stratified deposits, allowing students to observe thousands of years of change in stone tool technology..

In his Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Denial of Death, cultural anthropologist Ernest Becker attempted to develop a unified theory of human behavior. He argued that it was the human capacity to grasp and contemplate our own mortality-and our need to suppress this knowledge-that was at the root of human culture and behavior, from genocide to altruism, religion to philosophy. Terror Management Theory (TMT) is a psychological theory directly based on Beckers work, developed by a group of social psychologists interested in testing Beckers assertions about death as a core motivator of human behavior. Over the last 25 years, psychologists in the North America, Europe and the Middle East have conducted hundreds of studies to test hypothesis derived from Beckers work and the Terror Management Theory it inspired. This body of research compellingly supports Beckers thesis and reveals the ways in which mortality salience influences behaviors ranging from aggression and stereotyping to creativity and ...
The expression "Giant of Castelnau" refers to three bone fragments (a humerus, tibia, and femoral mid-shaft) discovered by Georges Vacher de Lapouge in 1890 in the sediment used to cover a Bronze Age burial tumulus, and then possibly dating back to the Neolithic. According to de Lapouge, the fossil bones may belong to one of the largest humans known to have existed. He estimated from the bone size that the human may have been about 3.50 metres (11.5 ft) tall. No modern peer-reviewed study has been published about the alleged giant bone fragments. The bones were discovered by the anthropologist Georges Vacher de Lapouge at the Bronze Age cemetery of Castelnau-le-Lez, France in the winter of 1890. His findings were published in the journal La Nature, Vol. 18, 1890 Issue 888. The height of the individual was estimated at about 3.5 m (11 ft 6 in) according to de Lapouge, and the bones were dated to the Neolithic period, since they were found at the very bottom of the Bronze Age burial tumulus. The ...
We have been talking about robots and artificial intelligence forever, or so it sometimes seems. Images of smart machinery have inhabited our thinking and our literary/cultural imaginations long before technology made such objects possible. It is tempting to keep such things separate - the art and science of the robot, or of the artificial intelligence that underpins it. However, there are reasons to thread them back together. After all, the AI of our imagination, is the AI we have built. In this talk, anthropologist and technologist, Dr. Genevieve Bell explores the meaning of "intelligence" within the context of machines & its cultural impact on humans and their relationships.

... - Omega 3 Fatty Acids We have been recommending supplementation with fish oil since the early 1980 s. Little by little research piled up that indicated that these are indeed beneficial for just about everyone. Fish oil, omega 3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA are often used interchangeably. A literalist will find differences between these but for our purposes we can use any of these terms. So why is fish oil beneficial? First let s consider some history. Nutritional anthropologists tell us that a primitive diet of the hunter gatherer would have a ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 fatty acids of 1:1. This is because both of these types of fatty acids are in the environment. Grasses are loaded with omega 3 fatty acids. The deer would eat the grass and incorporate it into their tissues. The hunter would eat the deer and get the benefit of those high omega 3 levels. We jump to modern times and the cultivation of corn mostly as a livestock food. Corn is very high in omega 6 fatty

Lawyers Committee for Human Rights 22 Jan 2004 www.lchr.org Rights Organizations Hail Supreme Court Decision in Myrna Mack Case January 22, 2004 The Lawyers Committee for Human Rights, the Center for Justice and International Law (CEJIL) and the Washington Office on Latin America (WOLA) today welcomed the decision of Guatemalas Supreme Court to reinstate the conviction of Colonel Juan Valencia Osorio for orchestrating the murder of renowned Guatemalan anthropologist Myrna Mack Chang in 1990.

The Supreme Courts decision, which was notified on Tuesday to Myrna Macks sister Helen and the Mack Foundation, overturned a May 2003 ruling of the Fourth Appeals Court, which had reversed Valencia Osorios earlier conviction by a trial ...
Exxon Valdez Oil Spill (EVOS) Traditional Ecological Knowledge Database Reference Guide - From the website: "The information in the Reference Guide was collected with a survey that was sent to nearly 100 potential respondents, including communities in the spill impact area, Alaska Native associations, Native corporations and other Native organizations, state and federal agencies, libraries, archives, museums and anthropologists. For the purposes of this survey, traditional knowledge was broadly defined to include everything from raw notes, photographs, audio tapes and videotapes, to formal databases organized on computer software.

Note: This database must be downloaded to your computer before it can be searched. ...
