Applications in Computing for Social Anthropologists by Michael Fischer
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


As increasing numbers of social anthropoloists use computers for wordprocessing, interest in other applications inevitably follows. "Applications in Computing for Social Anthropologists" addresses this interest and encourages researchers to make full use of their computers to help them organize data. Firstly, the author discusses computing applications in relation to research activities shared by all anthropologists - ethnographic fieldwork, management and analysis of footnotes and the use of visual and aural material. The book then illustrates the way in which computer-based representations can satisfy the requirements of anthropological methods with a detailed examination of representing kinship relations in an original way. Nal developments in the representation of visual and aural data on computers, as well as possible applications of knowledge based models are also introduced.
