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)
The top five university departments which published the most papers.
The top ten major topical themes of the articles published in our chosen journals. Each article could be counted in more than one category.
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
Theory Through Time
