  • Data Set Title: Linkages Project
  • Description: Social Biographies, Change, and Development (SBCD) Databases: Social biographies of persons are linked or networked through kinship, occupation and social ties; social biographies of things through transmission and exchange, and that of ideas through communiques and symbolic culture. The idea of these databases is to begin to study these interlinked aspects of social biographies by mapping the ethnography and social genealogies of human groups as networks which sustain other social and economic processes. Each genealogical dataset may thus provide a detailed mapping of social processes for which there is an accompanying body of ethnographic studies.
