Babies Aren't Persons: A Survey Of Delayed Personhood, David F. Lancy Mar 2014

Babies Aren't Persons: A Survey Of Delayed Personhood, David F. Lancy

David Lancy


To better understand attachment from a cross-cultural and historical perspective, I have amassed over 200 cases from the ethnographic and archaeological records that reveal cultural models (D'Andrade and Strauss 1992) of infancy. The 200 cases represent all areas of the world, historical epochs from the Mesolithic to the present and all types of subsistence patterns (Appendix 1). The approach is inductive where cases with similar models of infancy are clustered into archetypes. My principal finding from this analysis is that, in the broadest overview, infants are, effectively, placed on probation and not immediately integrated into the society. Attachment failure ...

Runx2 Tandem Repeats And The Evolution Of Facial Length In Placental Mammals, Marie Pointer, Jason Kamilar, Vera Warmuth, Stephen Chester, Frédéric Delsuc, Nicholas Mundy, Robert Asher, Brenda Bradley Dec 2011

Runx2 Tandem Repeats And The Evolution Of Facial Length In Placental Mammals, Marie Pointer, Jason Kamilar, Vera Warmuth, Stephen Chester, Frédéric Delsuc, Nicholas Mundy, Robert Asher, Brenda Bradley

Jason M. Kamilar

Background When simple sequence repeats are integrated into functional genes, they can potentially act as evolutionary ‘tuning knobs’, supplying abundant genetic variation with minimal risk of pleiotropic deleterious effects. The genetic basis of variation in facial shape and length represents a possible example of this phenomenon. Runt-related transcription factor 2 (RUNX2), which is involved in osteoblast differentiation, contains a functionally-important tandem repeat of glutamine and alanine amino acids. The ratio of glutamines to alanines (the QA ratio) in this protein seemingly influences the regulation of bone development. Notably, in domestic breeds of dog, and in carnivorans in general, the ratio ...


Marbles-And-Machiavelli: The Role Of Game Play In Children’S Social Development, David F. Lancy, Annette Grove May 2011

Marbles-And-Machiavelli: The Role Of Game Play In Children’S Social Development, David F. Lancy, Annette Grove

David Lancy


The authors review several case studies of children engaged in rule-governed play and conclude that the process of learning rules—and of breaking them and making new ones—promotes what they call gamesmanship. They link the development of gamesmanship to the theory of Machiavellian intelligence, which considers social interaction primary in the evolution of human intelligence.  They also question the benefits of adult-managed child play and assess the impact it may have on the ability of children to develop gamesmanship. Key words:Machiavellian intelligence, evolution of human intelligence, free play, adult-managed child play, gamesmanship.

Prehistoric Upland Tool Production In The Central Alaska Range, Brian T. Wygal Jan 2010

Prehistoric Upland Tool Production In The Central Alaska Range, Brian T. Wygal

Anthropology Faculty Publications

The Bull River II site represents an important alpine tool production site in the central Alaska Range south of Broad Pass. Initial test excavations produced a sizable lithic assemblage and charcoal dated to the Younger Dryas. A lithic analysis comparing Bull River II and the undated Costello Creek assemblages reveals biface production was the primary activity at both locations. Discovered at relatively high elevations (>1000 m.a.s.l.), the sites reflect an underrepresented Eastern Beringian site type related to upland resource procurement and offer a basis for testing seasonal land-use models.

Surname Analysis As A Sampling Method For Recovery Of Genetic Information, Joan C. Stevenson, R. J. Brown, Moses S. Schanfield May 1983

Surname Analysis As A Sampling Method For Recovery Of Genetic Information, Joan C. Stevenson, R. J. Brown, Moses S. Schanfield

Anthropology Faculty and Staff Publications

An effective means of retrieving ethnic information on a population sample for which there is already medical information may be surname analysis, but this has never been tested. Thus, two methods of surname classification were used to select individuals with German, Italian, Irish and Polish surnames from a sample of 2306 Milwaukee immigrants and offspring of immigrants. This sample represented only those individuals who identified all grandparents as coming from the same European geopolitical unit, and all had been previously tested for Glm(f, z, a and x), G3m(b0, bl, b3, b4 and g), A2m(l and 2), and ...
