Cognition. American Anthropological
Association, Annual Meetings,

Revised vesion of talks given during May 1994 at the
1995 Kinship: Formal Analysis and Cognition. Paper in Symposium on Kinship and Kinship theory: a Vibrant Future or Just a Healthy Past ?. American Anthropological Association 94th Annual Meeting, Nov. 15-19, 1995, Washington, DC.
1996 The Social Construction Of Ethnicity: Intuition, Authenticity, Authenticators. Paper presented in the Symposium on Culture as Distributed Cognition. American Anthropological Association Annual Meetings, 20 November 1996, San Francisco, California. This is a more extended treatment of Norway's Sami (and of US Jews) regarding how it becomes decided who is more or less "authentic"--how the politics and economics work re the semantics and re group membership. ca. 20 pages.
1997 Durkheimian Collective Representations:
a Distributed Cognition Perspective. Paper presented at "Vive Durkheim !": An Interdisciplinary Conference on Emile
Durkheim and Religion.
1998 Formal Rules, Cognitive Representations, and Learning in Language and Other Cultural Systems. Paper presented in the Symposium on Cognitive Anthropology and Formal Linguistic Models: Their Uses and Their Limitations. American Anthropological Annual Meetings, November 1998. Why formal rules (a la Chomsky's grammar or various anthropological characterizations of kinship terminological structures) even if/when highly accurate as technical descriptions do NOT represent any necessary theory (or direct description) of the cognitive operations that produced the regularities being described.

symposium “Rethinking Bateson” at the Biennial Meeting of the Society for
