  2. Professor Elizabeth Weiss on Controversy in Anthropology - Honest Offense 71

    Dr. Elizabeth Weiss is a professor in the Anthropology Department at San Jose State University, where she teaches physical anthropology courses. Her research expertise is in skeletal analyses of osteoarthritis, muscle markers, and bone cross-sections to reconstruct lifestyles and better understand bone biology.

    Recently, Dr. Weiss has caused controversy within her department and the anthropology community for her criticism of recent trends regarding repatriation of Native American remains. We discuss Dr. Weiss’ criticisms, the personal backlash she has received, why academic freedom is so vital, and much more.

The film shows how the river can overflow its banks during a storm (mark 06:06) damaging the surrounding land and endangering life as we see the massive destruction of the delta that resulted from the 1927 flood (mark 07:37).

    Starting at mark 08:40, the film explores the Army Corps of Engineers’ methods of maintaining it as a safe navigational channel and also details how the Corps has built countless levees, dams, floodways and other protective barriers in order to prevent a reoccurrence of the flood.
