    Biographical/Historical note

    Ethnographic futures research is an interactive, non-directive method for eliciting, in scenario form, perceived and preferred middle-range sociocultural visions of alternative futures for the extant society or organization of the interviewee.

    Scope and Contents note

Textor on the effect of new technologies on the field of archaeology; and interview with an Australian graduate student by Angus de Salis concerning cultural and economic change in Australia, prepared as part of the course work for Anthropology 269A at Stanford University, taught by Prof. Textor.
