Douglass Bailey will lecture in Michigan in February 2014

It looks like an American revolution just to see the name of Douglass W Bailey in Michigan. Although considered as the center of anthropology in the USA, today Michigan is a subject of very meaningful critics, since the deep crisis of anthropology also means this center has not been functioning in the proper way. Graduating from Michigan in many cases may still mean a guaranteed teacher seat at University. However, anthropology needs changes and as history shows Michigan may not only do not have the right program in anthropology – it may not have the right mechanism of selecting students in anthropology.

Douglass W Bailey has entered anthropology as an innovative scholar and personality. His book “Prehistoric figurines” is one of the most influential for changing the way we read, write and understand prehistory. Logically, he is invited to lecture on 21 Feb 2014 (a day before his 51st birthday) in Kelsey Museum of Archaeology in conjunction with the special exhibition Life in Miniature: Identity and Display in Ancient Seleucia-on-the-Tigris.

There are many cases when bright colors in science either fade or disappear in course of academic reproduction and changing human behavior. The collaboration between Michigan and Douglass W Bailey may have a positive effect in both directions – changing the image of Michigan anthropology and changing the behavior of Bailey who in SFSU context and Tringham’s context has developed one of the most terrifying models of social interaction that has damaged both people and society.

Just thinking about America, it comes the bright sky of democracy, humanity, progress, when dreams come true, top science, high culture, global spirit, safe future… Anthropology has lost its role to stimulate the positiveness in American life since the anthropologists have become in fact examples of negativeness (e.g. Tringham and Cashdan syndroms). Then, any new ring of bell of possible change attracts the attention of those who understand that the life is short and the life is about value and moral in a cultural context that brings progress and more humanity.
