Extractions: The mission statement of the University of Houston states that it is to serve the education and research needs of the Greater Houston area, which is an urban center with great cultural diversity as a community and which functions as an important port and center for global interaction. Accordingly, the Department of Anthropology provides academic training and field experience in human biological diversity, cultural diversity, medical anthropology, and archaeology.at the undergraduate and master's level for full-time and part-time students. Since Houston is a multicultural society and part of a world system (trends that will only become more prevalent in the next century), knowledge and training in these areas is important to the University's mission to provide graduates who can function successfully in the modern world and improve their lives and the quality of their communities. The department contributes to research in all four of these areas and uses the diverse ethnic and cultural population which makes up the urban setting of Houston as a focal point for these research activities. In addition, faculty members from the department engage in international research and focus on global concerns in many of the courses they teach. The mission of the department is to provide research on multicultural concerns and to educate students to function successfully in a multicultural community as well as to have a better understanding of how the United States and Houston can integrate into a global system.
Extractions: Temple University Revised Version - 7/4/01 Introduction This paper critically discusses the professionalization of the field of visual anthropology in the United States during the 1960s and 1970s. I explore the development of an infrastructure that enabled visual anthropology to become recognized as a legitimate sub-field within cultural anthropology . Here is an illustration of my point: In the early 1970s when the Society for the Anthropology of Visual Communication became a sub-section of the American Anthropological Association and regularly participated in the construction of the annual program, I would argue that the field of visual anthropology became officially accepted as a credible scholarly undertaking. This paper deals with seven elements of the infrastructure: organizations, training, publication outlets, archives and film distribution and festivals, seminars, and conferences. By concentrating on institutional efforts to professionalize, I ignore the individual efforts of those who advanced the field by their filmmaking, research and teaching but who did not attach themselves or their work to any ongoing institutional framework . While there has been an interest in the production of pictorial images and the study of visual manifestations of culture since the beginning of anthropology in the United States, it is the work of Margaret Mead that forms the immediate precedent. Her research with Gregory Bateson in Bali provided strong evidence of the possibility of publishing anthropology pictorially and the necessity for an archive where scholars can study the photographs and motion pictures of other researchers (Bateson and Mead 1942). In the Study of Culture at a Distance (1953), Mead along with Bateson, Metraux and others demonstrated the possibility that anthropologists could profitably study the images of Western culture. Without question, Mead was the "mother" of visual anthropology in the United States.

Extractions: What can an anthropology degree do for you? "What's your major?" It is one of the most common queries heard on college campuses. What we study in college can determine the direction of our career for the rest of our lives. The purpose of this article is to introduce students to, or aid students already considering, a major in anthropology. What is Anthropology? bodyOffer(3819) Anthropology is "the study of people." There are several different types of anthropology that you can explore. The four major subcategories of anthropology are archaeology, cultural anthropology, physical (or biological) anthropology, and linguistics. Archaeologists are perhaps one of the more popular types of anthropologists in the eye of the media. If you select a major in anthropology, 2 out of 3 people will immediately envision Indiana Jones when you tell them what you study. Archaeologists are interested in painting a picture of our past by examining what was left behind. By studying artifacts, such as pottery shards, arrowheads, buried walls, and human remains, archaeologists tell us what life was like at a particular time in prehistory. They also attempt to explain how cultures and people change over time and the causes for this change. Where archaeologists study our past, cultural anthropologists study living cultures. They often do this by the widely practiced method of "participant-observation". This means the anthropologist studies the culture he or she is interested in first-hand. The anthropologist lives with the culture being studied and participates in their daily activities. It is believed that this is one of the best ways understand a culture that is foreign to ourselves. Typically, cultural anthropologists study non-Western cultures.

Extractions: GOODNOW IS OUR NEW HOME! By John Whittaker During the Spring Break last year, the department made the long-awaited move to Goodnow. Built in 1884-5 as the college library and first observatory, Goodnow is the oldest building on campus and the now the finest. Contrary to campus legend, it did not survive the hurricane of 1882, but was built with $10,000 dollars donated by philanthropist Edward Goodnow as the first of the new buildings. Recent grads will remember the pink quartzite tower, but may never have seen the inside. This is now the office of retired department member Ralph Luebben , who now has the highest office on campushe claims to be nearer to heaven, but those of you who are his friends and ex-students can judge for yourselves. Goodnow was allowed to degrade until, when Psychology moved out in 1987, it was mostly closed off as unsafe. The downstairs was used as temporary quarters for the Education Department and several other faculty during the renovation of other buildings. After years of agitation and planning we convinced the trustees and administration to save it from demolition and remodel it for Anthropology. The front part of the building, with oak stair, stained glass windows, and a fireplace in the seminar room have been restored to their former glory, and the back part divided into 12 faculty offices on three floors, with a small classroom, new audiovisual facilities, and a secretarial office on the first floor, an archaeology lab on the second floor, and a computer room and a student project room on the third. The first floor also houses the college's Sesquicentennial headquarters.
