Andrew Turner I have a B.A. in anthropology from the University of Wisconsin. I wrote my senior thesis on the importance of using cultural context in evaluating indigenous technologies (in this case specifically raised fields in the Lake Titicaca Basin of Peru and Bolivia). I am a practicing anthropologist and I currently work in a small NGO in southern Bolivia. My latest project is the study of coca use among the Guaran!. I have various interests but the overall idea that gets my blood pumping is change. I am interested in broad trends like the begining of agriculture, cities, war, or just about anything that you can say involves a group of people and that somehow or other was "invented" in human history. How do people make broad changes? What factors cause groups to change the entire nature of their social organization? How much of this process is accidental and how much is planned? Of course this all goes on and on, but thatos the general idea. I am also interested in studying sports from an anthropological standpoint.
