One of the goals of these projects is to use social network analysis to model and theorize social and institutional structure, as well as social change and activity structure, at the level of communities, populations or groups studied by anthropologists or social and demographic historians. The comparative and world-system studies represent the attempt to embed our theoretical understanding of these longitudinal case studies in the global social historical network.
A second goal is to make baseline data available for the student training and collaboration and for future generations of researchers. Current student collaborations include the longitudinal studies in Tlaxcala continued by Michael Schnegg (Cologne), in Chuuk, continued by Patricia Skyhorse (UC Irvine), in Rapanui, continued by Maria Eulogia Santos Colima (Barcelona), in Guatemala, continued by Silvia Casasola (UC Irvine), in Tzintzuntzan, continued by Eric Widmer (Geneva), in Norfolk, England, continued by William Fitzgerald (UC Irvine), and others.
