William Irons-PhD Michigan 1969

Department of Anthropology – Research and teaching interests: Evolutionary Ecology, Reproductive Strategies, Demography, Evolutionary Foundations of Morality and Religion, Pastoral Nomads and Middle East.

Biography:

William Irons did his is doctoral research on the Yomut Turkmen, a group of pastoral nomads in northern Iran.  He later returned to Iran for two more studies of the Yomut.  The last study was an extensive demographic and economic survey which provided data very useful for evolutionary analysis.

In 1976, he and Napoleon Chagnon organized a set of symposia on the use of behavioral ecology in anthropology for the 1976 annual meeting of the American Anthropological Association.  These symposia led to the publication, in 1979, of a volume edited by Chagnon and Irons entitled Evolutionary Biology and Human Social Behavior: An Anthropological Perspective.  This volume presented much of the earliest work in anthropology designed to evaluate evolutionary theories of behavior and culture.

Stunning 2200-Year-Old Mosaics Discovered in Ancient Greek City

Ancient mosaics discovered in ancient Greek city of zeugma

Twisted Sifter Site: Three new mosaics were recently discovered in the ancient Greek city of Zeugma, which is located in the present-day province of Gaziantep in southern Turkey. The incredibly well-preserved mosaics date back to 2nd century BC.

Zeugma was considered one of the most important centers of the Eastern Roman Empire and the ancient city has provided a treasure trove of discoveries with 2000-3000 houses in remarkably good condition. Excavations at Zeugma started in 2007 and continue to this day.

Up until 2000 the ancient city was completely submerged underwater until a project to excavate the area received funding from a number of sources. There are still many areas of Zeugma—a city once home to nearly 80,000 inhabitants—left to excavate, including 25 houses still underwater. It’s exciting to think of what other discoveries remain to be found.

Travelling to Ashgabat the capital of Turkmenistan, Day 1

A hotel in Ashgabat city

A hotel in Ashgabat city

Web: Our Nomadic Life – We visited Ashgabat, Turkmenistan on a work trip. We hardly had any knowledge about this country (did not know even the name of the capital and where it is located), We managed to get some information via the web but it got us a bit worried as the country seems to be known as the North Korea of Central Asia!!!

This was an extremely rare opportunity for us to visit the country and fortunately our organization could issue us two invitation letters, as it is very difficult to enter Turkmenistan. In all, we stayed 5 nights in Ashgabat.

We flew from Jakarta to Ashgabat via Dubai. Ashgabat airport was really clean and shiny like a 5 star-hotel. But we hardly saw anyone there. Surprisingly, almost 30% of the passengers in our flight were Japanese and they seemed to be traveling on an organized tour. We wondered why they have chosen Turkmenistan for their holiday destination but we did not have a courage to ask them… Read more…

Justin Trudeau and Liberal Party Prevail With Stunning Rout in Canada

Justin Trudeau

Justin Trudeau of the Liberal Party and his wife before giving his victory speech in Montreal.

The New York Times: OTTAWA — The nine-year reign of Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his Conservative Party came to a sudden and stunning end on Monday night at the hands of Justin Trudeau, the young leader of the Liberal Party.

Starting with a sweep of the Atlantic provinces, the Liberals capitalized on what many Canadians saw as Mr. Harper’s heavy-handed style, and the party went on to capture 184 of the 338 seats in the next House of Commons. The unexpected rout occurred 47 years after Mr. Trudeau’s father, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, first swept to power.

Justin Trudeau, who will be 44 on Christmas Day, will become Canada’s second-youngest prime minister and the first to follow a parent into office. Read more…
