Anthropologist Dr. Richard Currier & I Talk About Human & Alien Evolution..This is my alien life…
By Cameron Brauer
Dr. Richard Currier is my guest. Dr. Currier is an author and anthropologist, and he writes about contemporary society, the history of technology, primate social behavior, and Greek Island cultures. We are discussing his book Unbound: How Eight Technologies Made Us Human and Brought Our World to the Brink and tonight I am hoping I can get him to talk about aliens. Richard L. Currier earned his BA and PhD in Social and Cultural Anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley and conducted ethnographic field research for his doctorate on the Greek island of Ios in the Southern Cyclades, where he spent fifteen months studying patterns of social interaction in traditional Greek island society. As an Instructor in Anthropology at U.C. Berkeley and a Professor of Anthropology at the University of Minnesota, and the State University of New York at Plattsburgh, Currier taught introductory courses in both physical and cultural anthropology as well as upper division courses in cultures of contemporary Latin America, cultures of the Mediterranean, cultures of Mesoamerica, human evolution, peasant societies, primate social behavior, religion and culture, sexuality and culture, and world ethnography. A pioneer in the design and development of interactive learning technologies, Dr. Currier has won numerous awards for his work. More information can be found on his personal website at www.RichardLCurrier.com. Richard L. Currier has published numerous feature articles, columns and book reviews in national publications, and--working with scholars at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem--he co-authored a ten-volume archeology series for young adults. His latest book, UNBOUND: How Eight Technologies Made Us Human, Transformed Society, and Brought Our World to the Brink, was published in 2015 by Arcade Publishing, New York, NY. A native New Yorker, Richard Currier lives in Oceanside, California.
