Patterns Through Time: An ethnographer's quest and journey

by Dr. Norm Whitten

Now Available!

PATTERNS THROUGH TIME Congratulations to Dr. Norm Whitten (Anthropology) on the release of his memoir, Patterns through Time: An ethnographer's quest and journey. For well over a half-century, Norman Whitten has spent a third of his professional life undertaking ethnography with Afro-Latin American and Indigenous peoples living in tropical forest-riverine environments of northern South America.

He has spent the other two-thirds engaged with theory construction in anthropology in institutional settings. In this memoir, he tells of his contributions to ethnography as a theory-constructive endeavor, and depicts an academic and practical environment in which strong support exists, but where obstacles and strong resistance must also be navigated.
