QIRKO, Hector (Coll of Charleston) Cooperation and Punishment in Intentional Communities. Proponents of strong reciprocity, the hypothesis that humans are predisposed to altruistically cooperate and punish non-cooperators, argue that it is supported by laboratory and field experiments, models, and ethnographic data from small-scale, traditional societies. Others, however, say that experimental results are an artifice of unnatural conditions, and that evidence from field studies is at best mixed. I discuss modern intentional communities as another source of relevant data, and present research findings that suggest that in such communities, altruistic punishment is rare and situational. (TH-15


QUADE, Kristen (Purdue U) Infusing Anthropology into City Urban Planning. Through a summer internship and Master’s practicum with a midsize City’s Development Department, I was able to bring anthropological thinking and methods into local urban planning where it had not been before. As the city was undergoing many changes relating to staffing and development goals, incorporating community opinion into city government and more sustainable development became prioritized. Through the internship, a bridge was built between an anthropology department and city government for working on new urban planning initiatives. I will discuss how through navigating the internship and bridge-building, I learned that there are many exciting opportunities for infusing anthropology into city planning. (F-133)

QUINTILIANI, Karen (CSULB) Putting the Local in Global Education: Sustainable Anthropology in a Public Institution. Public institutions are under pressure to trim programs and streamline time to graduation. Simultaneously, institutional strategic plans state that valued degrees include educational experiences in research, internships, and study abroad opportunities. The CSULB College of Liberal Arts calls this ‘More in 4.’ Department-level curriculum and program changes are discussed as strategies to sustain anthropology and to increase visibility to students choosing degree paths. To meet the needs of diverse, first- generation and working students, courses are designed to link local issues to the global. The paper considers what a sustainable anthropology may looks like now and into the future. (TH-49)
