Collapse?

On the question of collapse for Intro-to-Anthropology 2020 we read:

  • “Archaeology of the Last 5,000 Years” in Through the Lens of Anthropology (note: link is to the 3rd edition, but page numbers and quotes for this class are to the 2nd edition).
  • Michael Wilcox, “Marketing conquest and the vanishing Indian: An Indigenous response to Jared Diamond’s Guns, Germs, and Steel and Collapse.” Journal of Social Archaeology (2010)


This material was for Introduction to Anthropology 2020. It followed directly from the class on settlements and domestication.

For a 2021 update, see Stratified Complexity using the textbook Anthropology: What does it mean to be human?


Living Anthropologically means documenting history, interconnection, and power during a time of global transformation. We need to care for others as we attempt to build a world together.
