Readings - Theorizing Foraging Societies and Cultures
I've been fortunate to have been mentored by several pre-eminent Anthropologists who have made major contributions to our understanding of the ethnography and archaeology of Foraging - Hunter - Gatherer - Fisher cultures, including Wayne Suttles, Richard B. Lee, Henry S. Sharp, Donald Mitchell, Leland Donald, Gary Coupland, and 'Papa' Roy Carlson. Theorizing is the pursuit of generalized principles arising from our specific experience. These readings provide us with synthetic perspectives informed by some of the best minds who have focussed their thoughts on the principal conditions of human culture for the 99% plus of our existence prior to the advent of domestication, urban life, and the political organization of the State (which is not to say that your regionally specific readings don't also make a contribution to theory, these here just arise from experiences largely external to our study area).
