  • Editors' Introduction
    • Abstract: An annual publication comes to its final form more gradually than journals with more frequent issues. Unlike a book that can be planned in advance around a particular theme, HoAA foregrounds the range and diversity of papers as a cross-section of interests at a particular moment. As editors, we welcome the annual opportunity to sit back when each volume goes into production and reflect on the state of the art, both in the issue just completed and in the histories of anthropology more generally. It is always a surprise to see just what people are working on and how the various pieces may fit together, and we hope readers find that equally interesting.HoAA has held steadfastly to an editorial policy of accepting ...

  • The Anthropological Society in Vienna and the Academic Establishment of
           Anthropology in Austria, 1870-1930
    • Abstract: In recent years, the history of European anthropology within specific national contexts has received much attention (Barth 2005; Penny and Bunzl 2003b; Kuklick 1993, 2003; Hoßfeld 2005; Zimmerman 2001). Nevertheless, until now the special case of Austria-Hungary, a multiethnic state that did not have colonies, has been little examined. Although issues related to the research and the methodological approach of anthropologists from Austria are treated in studies about the history of anthropology in the German-speaking world as a whole (for example, Gingrich 2005, 2007), these studies have failed to relate their findings specifically to questions related to the multiethnic state's political context. Questions ... Read More

  • On the Soviet Ethnography of the Soviet Life: The Case of the "Village of
           Viriatino"
    • Abstract: Among a number of turns that Western anthropology has taken over the recent decades, perhaps the most important one is historical. Having reconsidered the premises of the "ethnographic present," anthropologists now are more inclined to take stock of the historical record of societies that they study as well as of their own discipline. This has invigorated the practice of anthropological revisits, which proved to be a very congenial methodological tool for reflective anthropology. Soviet and Russian anthropology for its part has considered itself a historical discipline since the 1930s. It takes great pains to examine historical sources of various kinds, but the biggest moments of self-reflection in the discipline ... Read More

  • Establishing Anthropology and Maori Language (Studies), Auckland
           University College: The Appointment of Ralph Piddington, 1949
    • Abstract: In case I may be misunderstood I emphasise the fact that talking of a "school of anthropology" does not mean that I dream of the immediate establishment of a huge research department with acres of floor space and a host of instructors. One or two instructors, a few square feet of office room, a few books on anthropology and an extremely modest research grant is the limit of my most extravagant dream.I have always maintained that Auckland was the most suitable place in NZ for the establishment of such a Chair. Auckland is surrounded by rich cultural areas with tribes that have descended from different voyaging canoes. You have a wonderful Museum that forms the richest laboratory that anthropologists could desire. I ... Read More

  • Myth and Music: The Musical Epigraphs to The Raw and the Cooked
    • Abstract: In the "Overture" to the first of his four volumes on myth, The Raw and the Cooked, Claude Lévi-Strauss makes the startling remark that "this book on myths is itself a kind of myth" (1969:6). This remark can be interpreted as what the French call a défi , a "challenge": if the book is itself a myth, it can be subjected to the same methods of structural analysis it deploys in the analysis of South American mythology. Indeed, the book's musical epigraphs (Figures 1 and 2) lend themselves perfectly to this kind of analysis; in spite of their apparent insignificance, taken together they expose and develop critical features of Lévi-Strauss's ideas, both in the book and in general. This is not to suggest that the musical ... Read More

  • Evolutionisms: Lewis Henry Morgan, Time, and the Question of Sociocultural
           Evolutionary Theory
    • Abstract: It remains true, however, that the legacy of the evolutionary anthropologists and sociologists of the nineteenth century has been largely repudiated by their twentieth century successors. . . . Contemporary social anthropologists do not regard it as their task to collect information about primitive peoples with a view to reconstructing the prehistory of civilization, nor do sociologists try to elicit laws of social evolution.But how do the insiders, the practitioners, represent the autonomy of their craft and their calling to themselves? . . . As anthropologists, we know where to look for the answer. We may expect to find it crystallized in myth and pedigree and accounted for by tradition—that is the process of ... Read More

  • Back to Boas
    • Abstract: I fear a major and growing loss of knowledge, both of the ethnographic record and of the gains to our understanding of human behavior derived from earlier anthropology. But the problems have not been solved and the future generations will inevitably return to them. It is time to look back to the work of our field to see what struggles our predecessors went through and what was learned through their efforts.At the 2005 American Society for Ethnohistory meetings in Santa Fe, New Mexico, I presented a paper entitled "Julian Steward: Then and Now." That paper demonstrated the connection between Steward's theory and testimony for the U.S. Department of Justice in Indian Claims Commission (ICC) proceedings and current ... Read More

  • A Redirection in Neo-Evolutionism?: A Retrospective Examination of the
           Algonquian Family Hunting Territories Debates
    • Abstract: This article explores the intellectual networks and debates within anthropology that maintained considerable influence on the practical and theoretical aspects of Frank Speck's intellectual development and the broader debates around the notion of Algonquian family hunting territories in anthropology. In particular I explore how the early debates around the family hunting territory concept reflect key redirections in neo-evolutionary theory during the 1930s and ultimately suggest a proleptic methodological modernism in anthropology. The result is a useful and engaged history of the development of the main arguments in the hunting territories debates from 1915 to 1939. Through an examination of these debates and the ... Read More

  • Eric Wolf and the Structural Power of Theory
    • Abstract: Reflecting recent developments in the historiography of anthropology, this paper offers a rereading of Eric Wolf's political and economic work. Applying Wolf's concept of structural power to examination of theoretical thinking, it focuses on three aspects of his work: the explicit and longstanding connections between Wolf's political economic analyses and the theoretical perspective outlined by his dissertation supervisor, Julian Steward; the development of Wolf's Marxian theory in Europe and The People Without History; and the implications of Wolf's theory for the representation of indigenous societies, drawing on his analysis of Dene involvement in the fur trade. It demonstrates the ways in which the application ... Read More

  • John White and the Invention of Anthropology: Landscape, Ethnography, and
           Situating the Other in Roanoke
    • Abstract: John White's 1585 watercolors of the coastal Algonquian people of what is now northeastern North Carolina were among the primary texts of the first attempt at English colonization of North America, what is known as "the Lost Colony."1 In 1590 copperplate engravings based on these paintings by Theodor de Bry were paired with Thomas Hariot's "A briefe and true report of the new founde land of Virginia," published simultaneously with Latin, English, German, and French text: a seminal event in the history of publication, part of de Bry's multivolume America (de Bry 1590; Mancall 2007:195). These pictures have long been acknowledged as the most significant early representations of what would become English North America ... Read More

  • George Byron Gordon and the Birth of a Colonialist Archaeology on the
           Southeastern Mesoamerican Frontier
    • Abstract: With great power there must also come—great responsibility!First we make our habits, then our habits make us.Archaeology tells people, intentionally or not, who they are and where they come from. Individuals and societies often turn to archaeology for information about their past, particularly when that past was appropriated by invading foreign powers; the ways in which archaeologists approach projects and select interesting foci can have a great impact on how such heritages are reconstructed as part of the reclamation of identities. Honduras offers a fascinating milieu in which to study the actualization of this process and its consequences for modern scholarship. Research within the country, like that conducted ... Read More

  • The Loci, The Pathway, The Network: C. R. Carpenter and the Origins of
           Cognitive Field Research in Primatology
    • Abstract: The study of memory integrates different humanistic and scientific disciplines. Philosophy, psychology, neuroscience, and anthropology are related due to this common research objective. This is due to the interest in exploring how the mind relates to human nature. For that reason, it is also common to find conceptualizations of this idea from the ancient Greeks to the present. This first part explores the idea of memoria (memory) in the beginning of the twentieth century in order to understand modern research in primate spatial memory. At the beginning of the century, two main views on the idea of memory were discussed in academic circles in Europe and the United States. Bartlett (1932) theorized in his conception ... Read More

  • Anthropologists and the Rediscovery of America, 1886-1965 (review)
    • Abstract: In Anthropologists and the Rediscovery of America, 1886-1965, John S. Gilkeson articulates how the work of anthropologists, beginning with Franz Boas, facilitated the rise of America's "culture-consciousness" from the end of the nineteenth century to the 1960s. Comprising five thematically and historically organized essays, Gilkeson's work articulates the significant impacts of American anthropologists' roles in formulating and disseminating a uniquely American conception of "culture" as a crucial idea for the emergence of American cultural nationalism and eventual rediscovery.Gilkeson focuses on the unique contributions and the peculiar space that the relatively new discipline of anthropology carved for itself ...

  • Anthropology and the Racial Politics of Culture (review)
    • Abstract: In Anthropology and the Racial Politics of Culture, Baker presents four case studies tied together as "stories" addressing questions about the complex politics of culture and race in Americanist anthropology from the mid-nineteenth century to the early twentieth century. Baker's aims of examining the concepts of race and culture as they took shape through the formative years of Americanist anthropology are pursued by looking closely at how folklorists', anthropologists', and others' ideas and uses of race and culture meshed in intellectual, institutional and public spheres. By painstakingly sorting out the often overly synonymous and intertwining meanings of culture and race, Baker presents a refined understanding ... Read More
