SOCIOCULTURAL THEORY THROUGH TIME


Our goal was to measure trends in theory over the 30 years from 1968 to 1998. We did this by creating a series of portraits, which you can move through quickly, like a flip-book.

Each student was assigned one year (at three-year intervals). In that period each compiled standard information, based on a survey of articles in four mainstream journals, and three less popular journals (see the list at the right)

WHO WAS HOT:

The top five university departments which published the most papers.

WHAT TOPICS WERE HOT:

The top ten major topical themes of the articles published in our chosen journals. Each article could be counted in more than one category.

WHAT SUB-DISCIPLINES WERE HOT:

Each author was tracked down in the AAA Guide to Departments, and their chosen sub-disciplines were added.

Journals at the Center:

American Ethnologist, American Anthropologist, Current Anthropology, Man (JRAI)

Journals on the Margins:

Anthropologica, Ethnology, Ethnos
