About Me

I have been a "non-traditional" anthropology student. After working as a software engineer for 20 years, I returned to the university to earn a B.A. in Anthropology.

I've also been very lucky to work with Dr. John F. Martin at Arizona State University. I have spent over two years working with him on a Sociocultural Anthro project, looking at the social and biological contributors to the sex ratio at birth in Africa and the Caribbean.

I run a few groups here at the OAC:

Summary of Anthropology Programs in the U.S.

Ancient Digger has posted a list of all U.S. Archaeology and Anthropology programs.  Naturally, my Alma Mater (Arizona State University) is first!


I would have found this to be a huge time saver when looking for a graduate school.

Mogollon Conference - Day 2

Michele Hegmon of Arizona State University asked us to consider the Classic Mimbres society as "Another Way of Being," and to do so through the archaeological data. She began by contrasting the layouts of Mibres pueblos vs. contemporary structures at Mesa Verde.

Mesa Verde unit pueblos are very uniform in their overall form, and in room size and shape: Room block, kiva, midden. This is suggestive…

Mogollon Conference - Day 1

After leaving Phoenix at 6:00 am and discovering somewhere along the way that New Mexico is currently in a different (i.e. later) time zone, I somehow still made it to the conference in Las Cruces just in time for the first presentation following the lunch break.

Chuck Adams from the UofA kicked off a series of presentations on the use of space for rituals in the pueblos. Adams is the director of the Homol'ovi…

What now? A non-trad anthro student considers the options

As a non-traditional student, I often find myself re-planning my future. A new school year has begun, and for the first time in a long time, I am not registered for any courses.... so something is up, and I need to once again evaluate what my future holds in terms of anthropology.

I have completed all the anthropology coursework for my B.A., and only two Spanish courses stand between me and a relatively useless degree. I'm rapidly approaching 50 years of age, and after some frank… Continue

Open Access: "Stop worrying about journals and learn to love repositories"

Mike Smith has a terrific posting about a scientific discipline (High Energy Physics) that created their own online repository for papers over ten years ago, and a recent paper that concludes that citations of these papers are five times those not archived.

Read it at Publishing Archaeology.

Thanks, Paul, it looks like an interesting group. Even though I've taught for many years in Israel and many places abroad, I am more of an activist anthropolo

gist, working on the Israeli Occupation and on militarism, both Israeli and global. Its hard when you're not at a university, you get kind of isolated and its hard to keep up with the ongoing professional discussion. So I look forward to getting reconnected through OAC and linking up with people doing related work -- and I hope I can contribute as well. So thanks for the welcome. Jeff
