Examination of the effects of anthropological movement in time.

Paper long abstract:

This research seeks to establish movement as one of the primary subjects of anthropological studies. Examination of the effects of anthropological movement, be it physical, cultural or as an agent of change in personal identity, may provide crucial insights in field work, but only if quantified scientifically. Recent findings in related scientific disciplines now require anthropologists to measure and articulate speed with a commensurate degree of precision and exactitude. Movement implies a destination over time, and both are of equal importance.
