The Society for Anthropological Sciences (SASci) was formed to promote empirical research and social science in anthropology. The members of SASci want to further the development of anthropological sciences with empirical knowledge based on testable theory, sound research design and systematic methods for the collection and analysis of data. We seek to fulfill the historic mission of anthropology to describe and explain the range of variation in human biology, society, and culture across time and space.
The Ethnographics Gallery is a project of the Centre for Social Anthropology and Computing. It is the direct descendent of the oldest online resource for Anthropology, dating to 1986. While we are giving the Gallery a face lift, please remember there are 20 year old pages within these halls.
We have no funding stream for this site, and so little time to maintain older material so it well may have a bit of a museum effect. Newer material will be appropriately wizzy.
The Ethnographics Gallery is a publication of the Centre for Social Anthropology and Computing. This site contains reports on CSAC research, Teaching materials, and Resources that can be used for planning and executing research, including bibliographic materials, databases of ethnographic material, fieldnotes, descriptors, and software for working with ethnographic data. Suggestions always welcome, but we have no funding stream for this website. It contains materials created since 1986, and many of them are rather unfashionable by today's standards. We do, however, want everything to work! mail suggestions to email@example.com
Our first internet service was begun in November, 1986, followed by our first web site in May, 1993, one of the first 400 web sites. The Ethnographics Gallery was founded in Feburary 1994. Our mission at that time was to provide a forum for anthropologists on the internet, and we helped to launch a number of organisations into cyberspace. Today, we are mostly concerned with novel forms of online publishing, disseminating our research, promoting learning resources, and disseminating information about using computers in anthropological research.
