    ‘Habitus in Extremis’: From Embodied Culture to Bio-Cultural Development.Greg Downey - 2014 - Body and Society 20 (2):113-117.
    Loïc Wacquant argues for a radicalization of the habitus concept provided by Pierre Bourdieu, suggesting that habitus is a site and mode for conducting research, not simply an explanatory or theoretical mechanism. Taking seriously this call to examine skills and communities of practice through apprenticeship, however, requires that the theoretical account of habitus be subject to empirical testing. Moreover, enquiry into communities of practice, especially the subtle psychological, behavioural and even neurological consequences of skill acquisition, means that claims about the (...)

  2. Hybrid Experiments in Higher Education: General Trends and Local Factors at the Academic–Business Boundary.Chisato Fukada, Sigrid Peterson, Greg Downey, Noah Weeth Feinstein & Daniel Lee Kleinman - 2018 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 43 (3):540-569.
    In response to the many pressures facing public higher education, public universities are experimenting with business-oriented practices that seem likely to alter their nature and purposes. In this paper, we examine several hybrid experiments—new organizational strategies intended deliberately, sometimes explicitly, to hybridize the traditional norms and practices associated with academia and business at one emblematic public university. These cases illustrate how each hybrid experiment is a tacit response to existing norms and strategies that govern the university–business boundary, initiated as a (...)

    All Forms of Writing.Greg Downey - 2014 - Mind and Language 29 (3):304-319.
    Anthropological contributions are essential to understanding the evolution of writing and its potential variation. Although Stanislas Dehaene calls for a ‘neuro-anthropological perspective’, he neglects anthropological evidence, including the only indisputable case of independent invention of writing: the pre-Columbian systems of the Americas. Here I argue that anthropological and historical accounts of the cultural evolution of language suggest that ecological, technological, social and political factors have all influenced the ongoing development of writing systems, even in directions contrary to that predicted by (...)

    The Anthropology of Sport and Human Movement: A Biocultural Perspective.Jon Entine, Bernd Heinrich, Clifford Geertz, Robert Scott, Greg Downey, Vilma Charlton, Dirk Lund Christensen, Loren Cordain, Søren Damkjaer, Joe Friel, Rachael Irving, Kerrie P. Lewis, Peter G. Mewett, Andy Miah, Timothy Noakes & Yannis P. Pitsiladis (eds.) - 2012 - Lexington Books.
    The Anthropology of Sport and Human Movement represents a collection of work that reveals and explores the often times dramatic relationship of our biology and culture that is inextricably woven into a tapestry of movement patterns. It explores the underpinning of human movement, reflected in play, sport, games and human culture from an evolutionary perspective and contemporary expression of sport and human movement.

    The Contribution of Cross-Cultural Study to Dynamic Systems Modeling of Emotions.Greg Downey - 2005 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (2):201-202.
    Lewis neglects cross-cultural data in his dynamic systems model of emotion, probably because appraisal theory disregards behavior and because anthropologists have not engaged discussions of neural plasticity in the brain sciences. Considering cultural variation in emotion-related behavior, such as grieving, indigenous descriptions of emotions, and alternative developmental regimens, such as sport, opens up avenues to test dynamic systems models.
