Alice C. LinsleyStone sheep cote in Zanuta, West BankPhoto: Emil SalmanIn the ancient world, dry stack sheep cotes served as housing for the shepherd. This is reflected in the King James version of Judges 5:16: "Why abodest thou among the sheepfolds, to hear the bleatings of the flocks?…See More

Alice C. Linsley replied to Liam Starkey's discussion Do anthropologists 'hoard' knowledge?
"Hoarding knowledge? As in not sharing findings? That is a tragic quality in an anthropologist. I only can speak from my experience, but I've found that the more freely I share findings, data, hard information, and sources, the more other people…"

"Anthropologists certainly should investigate in an empirical fashion, but this doesn't mean that all will pursue evidence and data in the same way. So much depends on what is being investigated."

Cultural Anthropology Applied to the Biblical Text

I recently posted a paper that might be of interest to some members of OAC. "Genesis in Anthropological Perspective" demonstrates how application of cultural anthropology to the Biblical text helps to correct false impressions and distorted interpretations. See More

Does the Binary Feature Signal Greater Complexity?

Alice C. Linsley





Biblical Anthropology delves into the oldest layers of the biblical material looking for information that is anthropologically significant in reconstructing cultural antecedents. This approach has proved extremely useful in gaining a clearer picture of Abraham's Nilo-Saharan ancestors. A fascinating aspect of their worldview is its binary feature, which I discuss …

I'm not focusing on the cosmological nor symbolical aspect of Kantu and Melayu Ethnics, rather exploring the changing land use from different period and analyzing how certain schemes of spatial historical knowledge influences being intersect with scientific-analysis of forest landscape they had learned in the vast timber logging era. For your information this ethnics also live in the middle of global flux of ideas since the emerging trade network of forest commodity, connecting them with the big tradition of cosmology such as christianity and Islamic Kingdom. But I have found the information about their belief (Kantu Tribe) which explaining about the concept dead land (tanah mati) and living land which mark where is the land that has reciprocity between nature and human and where is not. Since they were living in the swamp and lowland area they were not refering to mountain or cosmic oceans in the origin of belief, great tradition and modernity had change their belief for hundred years.

Hi Alice,

My area of interest are anthropology of space, cultural construction of technology, and also science and technology studies. I'm currently work at Center of Anthropological Studies University of Indonesia. I'm now currently in the middle of my fieldwork in Kapuas Hulu, West Kalimantan, studying the relation between ecological landscape and cultural landscape in the middle of historical continuity of forest use among Dayak Kantu and Melayu Ethnics. I'm very happy for your kind welcoming message. Thanks Alice.

Hi there,

My areas of interest are innovation anthropology and business anthropology. I currently work as an innovation anthropologist in a small branding company. I have been working within market research, product and concept development, idea generation and facilitating workshops. I am looking forward to applying anthropology and ethnographic method into practice in my new job!

Dear Alice,

Many thanks for your welcoming message. I am dealing with Visual and legal Anthropology. But my interest is nomads/Pastoralists( Mbororo) in central Africa, refugees and gender; frontiers and belonging. I hold a master in Law and another in visual anthropology from Tromso university. I did my fieldwork in the northern Cameroon on the Mbororo settlment process. Now I am a PhD candidate dealing with the issue of refugees from Central Africa Republic to the Eastern Cameroon. It is the same ethnic group though but who has to change their life system because of the civil war and insecurity in the bush. From "nomadism" to "refugism" what it is?

Hi Alice,
I recently finished schooling to become a registered, licensed dietitian ...but my interests are more geared to ethnobotany. There seems to be many local "edibles" that the general public are not aware of. In todays economy, that information could prove beneficial to those struggling, not to mention the health benefits of eating local, fresh foods. I hope to have some free time to explore your forum.

Hello Alice: Thank you very much for the welcome. I hope to learn more from your forum and blog. Inez
