Notes on the Reality of Archaeological Data: Two Zooarchaeological Case Studies from the Northern Rio Grande Region of New Mexico

Notes on the Reality of Archaeological Data: Two Zooarchaeological Case Studies from the Northern Rio Grande Region of New Mexico

Date: April 19, 2012
Creator: Dombrosky, Jonathan & Wolverton, Steven J.
Description: This presentation discusses research on archaeology. Public and academic perception of archaeology is unstructured. Members of the general public view archaeologists as key holders to the past, and members of "harder sciences" view archaeology as a pseudoscience. Both of these observations are problematic for the integrity of archaeological research and the field as a whole. Two case studies from the Northern Rio Grande (NRG) region of New Mexico show the limitations of zooarchaeological data. Principles derived from these case studies can help assuage overconfidence from the general public, as well as members of the archaeological community, and can ease excessive caution from members of the "harder sciences" in regard to archaeological conclusions.

True Tolerance: Religion in a Global Society - A Work in Progress

Date: April 2, 2009
Creator: Ferguson, Sarah & Wilkerson, Dale
Description: This presentation discusses research on religion in a global society. In this study, the author investigates the possibility of a universal religious ideology. True tolerance is defined as the acceptance of other beliefs as equal in validity to your own when viewed from their perspective. If a universal religious ideology does exist, can it serve as a foundation for true tolerance? For this research, the author investigates the movement of major religions towards secularization, proves the validity of a universal religious ideology, and examines the benefits of the aforementioned in creating understanding and supporting peaceful interaction between civilizations.

Toward an Understanding of Contemporary Professional Culture

Toward an Understanding of Contemporary Professional Culture

Date: April 14, 2011
Creator: Giulietti, Michael & Jordan, Ann
Description: This presentation discusses research on understanding contemporary professional culture. In the summer of 2010, the author embarked on an applied anthropology project to study the American professional culture of shoe repair. The project was funded by UNT's McNair Program, with guidance by Dr. Ann Jordan of UNT's Anthropology department. This qualitative study utilized anthropological methods to investigate this rapidly diminishing group and the reasons for its precipitous decline. The project had two methods of participant recruitment: in-store encounters, and attendance at the Shoe Service Institute of America's 2010 convention in Oklahoma City. Twenty-one participants were gathered from shoe repair establishments in the Dallas-Fort Worth are and an additional twenty-eight participants were located at the convention. The research uncovered the adaptive strategies employed by the shoe repair industry to remain a viable business in a consumption-driven market economy. In a future guaranteed to have fewer resources, shoe repair may see a resurgence as the public begins to value the services of shoe repair experts once more.

Creator: Giulietti, Michael & Jordan, Ann
Description: This paper discusses research on understanding contemporary professional culture. In the summer of 2010, the author embarked on an applied anthropology project to study the American professional culture of shoe repair. The project was funded by UNT's McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program with guidance by Dr. Ann Jordan of UNT's Department of Anthropology. This qualitative study used the anthropological methods to investigate this rapidly diminishing group and the reasons for its precipitous decline. Participants were recruited either through in-store encounters or from participants in the Shoe Service Institute of America's 2010 convention in Oklahoma City, OK. Twenty-one participants were gathered from shoe repair establishments in DFW and 28 from the convention. The research uncovered the adaptive strategies employed by the shoe repair industry to remain a viable business in a consumption-driven market economy. In a future guaranteed to have fewer resources, shoe repair may see a resurgence as the public begins to value their services once more.

Black Means??? An Interdisciplinary Analysis of Martin Heidegger's Theory on Language

Date: April 14, 2011
Creator: Guyden, Lateesha; Glazebrook, Patricia & Davenport, Beverly
Description: This presentation discusses research on the philosophical connotations of words. Philosophy of language allows us to examine how language has been used to shape, establish and solidify cultures. As we use the tools offered us by philosophers who have studied language, we will be able to explore the language that accompanied the creation of racial categories and the role that it has played in American society.
