ciate Professor, joined the
department in August 1985.
He reports that his career has
had four phases. Leaving his
home in Boston in his mid-
teens, he spent seven years in
a monastic setting where, in
addition to pursuing the in-
tricacies of Latin, Greek, and
philosophy, he began studying
modern languages on his own.
He can now speak six lan-
guages and has "become
rusty" in four others. Phase two of his career was spent in
villages and barrios of the Dominican Republic as a Peace
Corps Volunteer doing community organization, work that was
interrupted by the revolution of 1965. Degreeless and penniless,
he finally opted for college. He received a loan and partial
scholarship from Harvard, where he pursued a B.A., studied for
a year at the University of Freiburg, and eventually entered Col-
umbia University's Anthropology program. His Ph.D. disserta-
tion, based on a quantitative and descriptive analysis of the
land tenure system of a Haitian peasant village, was completed
in 1977. Phase three of his career was that of a college professor
at Yale, Columbia, and the University of Massachusetts. Phase
four has been a return to applied work. He has done project
design and evaluation work for the organization of American
States, USAID, the Inter-American Foundation, the Save the
Children Federation, and several other agencies in Haiti, the
Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Honduras,
Guatemala, Peru, and Cameroon. This work has spanned a
gamut of topics including agricultural diversification,
agroforestry, internal market systems, traditional and modern
healing systems, and child nutrition programs. The culmination
of phase four was the design of a plan for peasant-directed tree
planting in Haiti based on income generating wood trees and an
implementation strategy that skirted public sector
bureaucracies. Invited by USAID to direct the project that had
been based on his work, he has been delighted to see some
75,000 Haitian peasant families enthusiastically respond to this
approach and plant over 20 million feast growing trees on their
own holdings. He considers this work a greater contribution
than the numerous scholarly articles which he has published on
Haiti or the book on Haitian food beliefs and practices which he
and his wife have recently submitted to a university press. He
has come to U.F. with the intent of genuinely integrating the ap-
plied with the academic and interacting with the many faculty
members who share his interest in a problem-solving
anthropology that grapples with the material underpinnings of
human life. He hopes to lure at least a few graduate students
toward work in the Caribbean.
developed an early interest in psychology while still in her

native country, the Dominican Republic. Less interested in
private clinical work than in public service, she acquired a
Ph.D. in school psychology from New York University. Her
dissertation won first prize in a nationwide competition spon-
sored by the National Advisory Council on Bilingual Education.
Fluent in Spanish, English, Haitian Creole, and French, she has
worked with children of multi-lingual inner-city populations in
the school systems of New York City, Boston, and New Britain,
CT., where she also engaged in pre-service and in-service train-
ing of teachers, psychologists and other school-support per-
sonnel. She has done field work in rural Haiti on the role of
women in the internal market system and on Haitian child-
feeding practices. She also has been a consultant on various
nutritional educational programs. Her publications include a
co-authored monograph on nutrition programs in Haiti and
several articles on issues in bilingual education. She is currently
employed part-time as Visiting Assistant Professor in the
Department of Special Education and Curriculum/Instruction
here at U.F. and full-time as principal caretaker of their
19-month-old child, Nathaniel.


organized a day in honor of ZORA NEALE HURSTON in April of
1985. The day was in celebration of the department's first
scholarship recipient, GLORIA B. BRYAN and the completion of
the first $100,000 of the scholarship fund. A luncheon with
national officers of the Zeta Phi Beta sorority, PRESIDENT
MARSHALL CRISER and others highlighted the afternoon ac-
tivities. That evening a panel which was moderated by BURNS
highlighted the evening's activities and included writers


first scholarship recipient of
the Zora Neale Hurston
Fellowship. She is a nurse
." (M.S., University of Maryland)
who is interested in trans-
cultural nursing and black folk
medicine. She has held various
s. r positions in nursing service, ad-
ministration, and education.
Her most recent position was
as an Assistant Professor of
Nursing at Emory University.
Her interest in anthropology
goes back many years. As a senior nursing student, she worked
with a team of architecture students who were designing a com-
munity service facility for a community in Tanzania. After joining

the faculty at Emory University she became acutely aware of
the general lack of knowledge nursing students had of ethnic
groups. Too many had stereotypic images of certain popula-
tions which influenced the care they gave when encountering
these individuals in the hospital. The curriculum did not ade-
quately prepare nursing students to care for people of different
ethnic backgrounds. One of her reasons for returning to school
was to obtain advanced preparation in anthropology in the
hope of identifying concepts, strategies, and theories that
could be incorporated into a nursing curriculum to better
prepare nursing students to care for ethnically diverse groups.
She plans on doing research this summer on folk medicine in
the Caribbean. Additional research will be done in an Atlanta
inner city community during the early part of 1986. She says
that none of this could have been realized had it not been for
the Hurston Fellowship and the encouragement of PRO-
MERING. She is married and has two children.


Acting Chair for the academic
year 1985-1986. Rumors are
that she is enjoying the ex-
70 perience and doing an ad-
mirable job.


ANITA SPRING is now the
Associate Dean, College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences
(CLAS) and an Associate Pro-
fessor in the Department of
Anthropology. She started in
her new position in January
1985. She is responsible for
CLAS's international pro-
grams, interdisciplinary pro-
grams (including individual in-
terdisciplinary majors) af-
firmative action, and other
"deanly" duties. She also con-
tinues to teach, do research, and work with graduate students.
In addition, she directs the Women in Agriculture Program
funded by Title XII.


1985 Teacher of the year
award in the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences and
was honored at the April 1985
University Senate meeting
and May 1985 CLAS Bac-
calaureate. The award is given
for superior teaching and out-
standing service. She says, "I
feel I am an effective teacher
because I am a good re-
searcher" and that she keeps
"up-to-date with developments in my field."


A request by leaders of the Kanjobal Mayan refugee com-
munity living in Indiantown has resulted in a series of applied
anthropology projects linking U.F. with this multi-ethnic com-
munity. Two years ago JERONIMO CAMPOSECO, a Mayan an-
thropologist who has political refugee status in the U.S., visited
the department to talk with ALLAN BURNS and other interested
faculty and students about the arrival of some 800 Mayan peo-
ple from the Western highlands of Guatemala. This group of
Mayans are refugees from the political violence of the civil war
in Guatemala. Through family ties, they had come to South
Florida and settled in the migrant town near West Palm Beach.
BURNS, with the help of PAUL DOUGHTY, arranged for
to work on legal aid, community development, and migrant
nutrition with the Mayan community. This past spring SHERRI
DORMAN (M.A. 1985) did her Master's project in applied an-
thropology in Indiantown working with Haitian families who
also live and work in the community. BURNS and WUFT-TV
director ALAN SAPERSTEIN produced a half-hour film on the
Guatemalan Maya of Indiantown, "Maya in Exile", for public
television. Videotape copies of the work are now available for
purchase for $36.50. All proceeds will go the the Guatemalan
Mayan community in Indiantown. For information, write to

Merida, the capital of the Mexican state of Yucatan, is a city
where Mayan and Spanish cultures intermingle in everyday life.
This past year ALLAN BURNS and the U.F. Center for Inter-
national Studies and Programs organized a summer program for
undergraduates and graduates in Merida. The program is taught
through the University of Yucatan Departments of An-
thropology and Foreign Languages, with Yucatan scholars
teaching courses in intensive Spanish and the history and an-
thropology of the Yucatan. The summer program includes
weekly day trips and several overnight trips to archaeological
and ethnographic sites to compliment the classes. Students
from U.F. live with Yucatan families and have exchanges with
local students.


In August PAUL DOUGHTY was part of a delegation from the
City of Gainesville which went to the Soviet Union on behalf of
the "Sister City" program. The T.V. team which accompanied
the delegation is permitting DOUGHTY and graduate student
RON JOHNSRUD to develop several short video pieces for
classroom use on Russia. Under DOUGHTY's direction several
graduate students are also conducting a study on the impact of
the "Sister City" program on local views of Russia.


The U.F. Women in Agriculture Program sponsored an inter-
national conference on "Gender Issues in Farming Systems
Research and Extension" from February 26 to March 1, 1986,
with grants from the Ford and Rockefeller Foundations. The
conference was organized by MARIANNE SCHMINK. There
were 84 papers presented at the conference, including those by


WILLIAM H. ADAMS, Visiting Assistant Professor in An-
thropology, has finished his two year stint as President of the
Society for Historical Archaeology. He will continue on the
Board of Directors as the Conference Coordinator. Recently he
has published two articles, "Comments on Ethnoarchaeology
and Behaviorism" (American Antiquity) and "Commodity Flows

ADAMS reports that the Anthropology Department began a
new publication series entitled Reports of Investigations with
the publication of the first two of five volumes on the work con-
ducted at Kings Bay, Georgia, from 1981 to 1985. Reports of In-
vestigation 1 "Aboriginal Subsistence and Settlement Ar-
chaeology of the Kings Bay Locality: The Kings Bay and Devils
Walkingstick Sites" and Reports of Investigations 2 "Aboriginal
Subsistence and Settlement Archaeology of the Kings Bay
Locality: Zooarchaeology" were edited by ADAMS and contain
contributions by ADAMS, T. DESJEAN, C. ESPENSHADE, R.
DER AND S. HALE. Reports of Investigations 3 "Archaeological
Resource Management Plan for Kings Bay Archaeological
Multiple Resource Area," was co-authored by THOMAS H.
on sabbatical this year, presented a paper at the American An-
thropological Association (AAA) meetings entitled "Informant
Accuracy: The Problem of Validity in Retrospective Data."
ALLAN BURNS, as a U.F./Spain Exchange Scholar, is spending
the year in Madrid giving lectures and teaching several
seminars for the Universidad Complutense Faculty. BURNS and
ANTHONY OLIVER-SMITH spent the summer of 1985 in nor-
thern Spain on a research project on regional identity. BURNS
was an invited speaker at a PEN writer's symposium on
translating New World indigenous literature held in New York.
He has an article on Guatemalan relations in the journal of the
S.E. Center on Latin America and another entitled "Video Pro-
duction as Dialogue, The Story of Lynch Hammock" to appear
in The Emergence of Dialog in Anthropology, TEDLOCK and
Maiduguri, Nigeria, presented a paper at the AAA meetings en-
titled "Macro Change and Micro Effect in Borno Agriculture."
COHEN was also a discussant in a session on "Explanatory Fer-
tility and the Qualitative/Quantitative Interface in An-
thropology." Recently he completed field work on food produc-
tion systems in Nigeria and is analyzing data on 300 African
farmers. As part of a US-USSR team to develop common ap-
proaches to "Ethnicity and National Unity in Modern States,"
COHEN traveled to Moscow and Kiev in June 1985. Currently
he is planning (with WALTER GOLDSCHMIDT) sessions at the
1988 International Union of Ethnological Sciences on "The
Peace Process in Anthropological Perspective." PAUL L.
DOUGHTY has been named chair of the Constitution Revision
Committee of the Latin American Studies Association. He
recently finished two papers: "Anthropology at the Crossroads:
Human Rights in Latin America" for a chapter in Anthropology

and Human Rights edited by T. DOWNING and "Latin America,

Contemporary Latin America. His article "Development and the
Hope for Peace" is in press in The Anthropology of Peace edited
by R. RUBENSTEIN and M. FOSTER. DOUGHTY is contributing
the "Preface" to ALLYN MACLEAN STEARMAN's (Florida Ph.D.
1976) forthcoming restudy of the Siriono Indians of Bolivia,
Nomads No More (Hamilton Press). He organized a symposium
at the AAA meetings on behalf of the Commission on the Study
of Peace (IUAES) on "Anthropological Perspectives on Peace in
Guatemala and Peru," and delivered a co-authored paper with
MARIO VAZQUEZ on "Changes and Violence in Rural Peru."
BRIAN DU TOIT had an article published entitled "Mis-
sionaries, Anthropologists, and the Policies of the Dutch
Reformed Church" in The journal of Modern African Studies. He
has also received a grant for a restudy of drug use among South

Girls" and "Menstruation: Attitudes and Experience among In-
dian South Africans." PATRICIA ESSENPREIS, Adjunct Assistant
Research Scientist, spent the summer investigating the Ohio
Hopewell earthworks of Fort Ancient. Fort Ancient is one of the
nation's largest ancient architectural complexes. Mapping and
excavation were directed at assessing if the monument was
built rapidly or if it grew accretionally over time. Under the
auspices of the Ohio Historical Society and a grant from the Na-
tional Endowment for the Humanities, she will publish an il-
lustrated catalogue of the artifacts and artworks from the
Hopewell type-site. ART HANSEN had an article entitled "Farm-
ing System Research in Phalombe, Malawi: The Limited Utility
of High Yielding Varieties" appear in a book Social Sciences and
Farming Systems Research. In Domestic Farming Systems 1984
Proceedings (U.F. Press) he has an article on "Learning from Ex-
perience: Implementing Farming Systems Research in the
Malawi Agricultural Research Project." The entire keynote
speech he gave at a 1984 Zambian workshop on social scientists
and farming systems research has been published in African
Social Research. Parts of that speech have also been published
in the Spanish and French editions of the Farming Systems Sup-
port Project Newsletter. HANSEN co-sponsored two panels at
the November 1985 African Studies Association annual
meetings on "Food in Africa: Some Agricultural and
Sociocultural Perspectives." He also presented a paper on
"Disaster Traditions: Theirs, Yours, and Ours" at the AAA

Board of the Latin American Research Review. MICHAEL
MOSELEY and CHRISTOPHER CLEMENT, a graduate student,
with support from U.F. Division of Sponsored Research, map-
ped coastal irrigation systems this summer in Peru to measure
long-term loss of arable land. The systems under study have
contracted by 20% to 100% during the last thousand years, and
the research seeks to establish if human or hydrological
variables are the principal contributors to the loss of farm land.
MOSELEY organized a symposium at Dumbarton Oaks. In-
tegrating contributions from ethnohistorians and ar-
chaeologists, the symposium assessed myth, history and
political structure among late Prehispanic dynasties on the

north Andean coast. GERALD F. MURRAY had an article

Shrimp Fisheries Conflict of the Gulf Coast of Florida." Currently,
she is conducting follow-up research funded by NSF and Florida
Sea Grant on "The Role of Community-Level Resource Manage-
ment Systems in Fishery Conflicts." She also organized and
chaired a session at the AAA meetings entitled "Working the
System: American Indians and the Congress:" Five of the seven
participants were American Indians who work in the Congress,
lobbying firms or related agencies. BARBARA PURDY and LEE
ANN NEWSOM (graduate student) have just published an arti-
cle "The significance of Archaeological Wetsites: A Florida Ex-
ample" in National Geographic Research. She and
CHRISTOPHER MAURER, a ceramic engineer in a postdoctoral
position in the department, are getting good results with ther-
moluminescence dating of heat-altered flint materials and are
actively seeking funds to continue the research. PURDY reports
that prehistoric canoes keep appearing and that they are in-
vestigating all that are reported. A radiocarbon date of 3350
years before present makes one recently-reported canoe the
oldest yet recovered in the Western Hemisphere. DAVID E.
CLARK of the Materials Science and Engineering Department
and PURDY just completed a review article about the
"Archaeological Implications of Materials Weathering." This
article will appear in a future issue of Advances in Ar-
chaeological Method and Theory. PRUDENCE M. RICE has been
elected to a two-year term on the Executive Committee of the
Society for American Archaeology (SAA) and to the office of
Secretary-Treasurer (elect) of the Society for Archaeological
Sciences. With funding from NEH, she and R. J. SHARER

Spain, at the Primera Mesa Redonda: Hernan Cortes en el Area
Maya. At the 2nd International Conference on "Ancient
Chinese Pottery and Porcelain," Beijing, China, she presented
"Chinese Porcelains at Early Historic Sites in Florida and the
Circum-Caribbean" (with K. DEAGAN). She published "Maya
Pottery Techniques and Technology" in Ancient Technology to
Modern Science, W. D. KINGERY, editor; "Provenience Analysis

March 1986 she was in Cameroon at the University of Yaounde
and the University Center at Dschang (UCD) as part of efforts to
develop additional collaborative research, teaching and faculty
exchange programs between U.F. and the UCD. She was also in
Burkina Faso for discussions with the leadership of the
Ondocerciasis Control Program, World Bank and USAID regard-
ing comparative research on planned settlement activities in
the seven country control program that she hopes to conduct.
She and HANSEN share leadership responsibilities for the
Center for African Studies' Food in Africa Program.


In February 1986 the Florida State Museum presented a sym-
posium on "Spanish and Native American Encounter in 16th-
Century Florida." J. LEADER, E. WING, i. MITCHEM, B. PURDY,
and B. MCEWAN gave papers. KATHLEEN DEAGAN gave a
presentation, "In Columbus' Footsteps: The Archaeological
Search for La Navidad," for the Frontiers of Science lecture
series. She is now the president of the Society for Historical
Archaeology. Recently, she completed field work in Haiti at En
Bas Saline, an Arawak Indian town of the contact period which
is believed to be the site of La Navidad. Excavation of the site
Puerto Real, a 16th century Spanish Town has also been com-
pleted. She had grants from NEH and OAS. DEAGAN par-
ticipated in the Smithsonian planning conference on observa-
tions of the Columbus Quincentenial and gave a paper at the
11th International Congress on Caribbean Archaeology. She
guest edited a special issue of the Florida Anthropologist on The
Archeology of 16th Century St. Augustine. WILLIAM H. MAR-
QUARDT, Visiting Associate Professor in Anthropology and Ad-
junct Associate Curator in Archaeology, continued his research
in southwest Florida during 1985, visiting and documenting a
number of known sites and directing test excavations at the
Josslyn Island Mound, Lee County, Florida. He has also con-
tinued fund-raising efforts with the support of the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences and the Division of Sponsored
Research. Private contributions received so far total over
$40,000. He has also received a grant of $60,000 from the
National Science Foundation for his archaeological project,
"The Development of Cultural Complexity in South West,
Florida." MARQUARDT presented a paper at the AAA meetings
at an invited symposium on the structure of state formation,
drawing on data from the Late Iron Age to the Gallo-Roman
period in Burgundy, France. A volume on France, Regional
Dynamics: Burgundian Policy and Province, co-edited by
CAROLE L. CRUMLEY, is nearing completion and going into
production at Academic Press. The volume is being supported
in part by a grant from the National Science Foundation. His re-
cent publications include "Complexity and Scale in the Study
of Fisher-Gatherer-Hunters," in Prehistoric Hunter-Gatherers:
The Emergence of Cultural Complexity (Academic Press, 1985)
and a monograph, The Gregg Schoals and Clyde Gulley Sites, co-
authored with A. TIPPITT. He also served as a discussant in a
symposium at the SAA meetings and as a consultant and
evaluator of curatorial facilities, National Park Service, Boston.
JERALD T. MILANICH and his students continue to research the
route of the 1539 Hernando de Soto expedition in Florida and its
effect on aboriginal populations. Partially funded by two
anonymous grants of $30,000, J. MITCHEM supervised two field
seasons at what is thought to be a de Soto-contact mound in
Citrus County. A third field season is planned for fall 1986. A
grant of $15,000 from the Florida Division of Recreation and
Parks to the U.F. Center for Early Contact Period Studies will be
used during 1986 for further archaeological research on de
Soto's route in north and south Florida; K. JOHNSON, graduate
student, will be the field supervisor on the project. Two small
grants were also received from the Florida Division of Archives,
History and Records Management for research on aboriginal
and Seminole sites in the Cove of the Withlacoochee; MIT-
CHEM and B. WEISMAN, another graduate student, supervised

the field research. MILANICH and co-project director S.
MILBRETH received a grant of $35,900 from NEH to plan a
major exhibit on de Soto and other early sixteenth century
Spanish explorers in the Southeast United States. The project
was recently featured in Humanities Magazine. Additional fund-
ing for fabrication of the exhibit is being sought. A 1989 opening
is planned which is the 450th anniversary of de Soto's landing in
Florida. During the Summer of 1985 MILANICH served on the
review panel for Museums and Historical Organizations at NEH
and on the NSF Division of Behavioral and Neural Sciences
Anthropology Oversight Committee. He begins a two year term
as president of the Southeastern Archaeological Conference in
the Fall of 1986. MILANICH and graduate student D. RUHL
have completed two presentations for the Pictures of Record
series "Fort Center and the Belle Glade Culture" which focuses
on the prehistoric society that resided in the Lake Okeechobee
Basin from ca. 500 B.C. into the seventeeth century.
