Anthro theory timeline

In my Copious Free Time I’ve been playing around with The SIMILE Project’s excellent open-source tool timeline  — its very easy to use (although I haven’t used it much so far) and so I knocked up a flashy ‘web2.0’ time line of books written by anthropologists in the 1970s — you can see the very rough anthro theory timeline here. I think its incredibly cool and that we should fill in All Relevant Dates going back to League of the Iroquois. But then again that just might be me. So… how would you populate it?


Alex Golub is an associate professor of anthropology at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. His book Leviathans at The Gold Mine has been published by Duke University Press. You can contact him at

  1. Is there any way to allow public editing? Seems like a valuable tool, especially if collaboration is allowed.
