Seshat founding editor and University of Oxford anthropologist Professor Harvey Whitehouse recently spoke about rituals and Seshat: Global History Databank at the World Economic Forum annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland. Whitehouse presented his research in a Betazone session in partnership with the Nature Publishing Group in a speech entitled “Why Facts Don’t Unify Us.” The lecture touches on Whitehouse’s field work with cargo cults in Papua New Guinea, and introduces theories on the link between the frequency and intensity of rituals and social cohesion that will be tested by Seshat.
