The economy is great, now where's my job?

Interview of Applied Anthropologists

Hello All, 

My name is Adam Harris. I am currently a senior undergraduate student at North Carolina State University majoring in Anthropology.

I do hope that I can come into contact with more Anthropologists using this forum to find out more about the field and the members in it. …

What To Do With Anthropology Degree

Anthropology has seen a drastic change within the last few years. According to statistics, the demand for anthropologists right across the global workforce will increase by 38% by 2026. Anthropologists used to be confined to an academic future with no promise of expanding their horizons into anything but anthropology. Today, we see an entirely new universe opening up with even wider opportunities…

Why the Indus Script is Logo-syllabic

I have published two papers on this. I have introduced Logo-syllabic thesis B as opposed to the old thesis which I have named A. However, the days of sensational (pseudo-) decipherments are over. We need an analytical approach now.

The origin of the Brahmi Script

I have traced the origin of the Brahmi script down to the last century. See how beautifully it tallies with the acculturation model that I proposed.

The Reconstruction of the Languages of the Indus Valley Civilization

I have proposed several all-new approaches which will work. However, we need inter-disciplinary teams. This can easily be executed and even major languages partially reconstructed independently.

Should History be replaced by Anthropological Historiography or Anthropology in schools?

I strongly believe so, but this may take time.

The Great Hindutva Hoax: Why Hindutva is the biggest threat to Indian Science and Indian Intellectualism

The Great Hindutva Hoax: Why Hindutva is the biggest threat to Indian Science and Indian Intellectualism

Read my papers to find out why. 

Even as the Mid-Nineteenth Century school of Indology and Indian Marxist Historiography are now dead (Both clearly represented threats to science, society and the education system), we must not allow Hindutva and religious-inspired approaches to replace them!

Never! This would be calamitous indeed. 

Intellectuals in…

How to trace the Indo-Europeanization of the world

My solution to the Aryan problem and the Indo-European question is presented in three of my papers. 

We can now indeed trace the Indo-Europeanization of the world at a fairly great level of detail. In my opinion, the only way to do this is to work backwards. 

(a) The first approach is the Outside in approach - start with Ireland first, UK next etc (Those languages which are the farthest from the Indo-European homeland in Central Asia will be analyzed first.)
