Hello. I am a grad student at the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg. I am studying cultural anthropology and want to do my thesis on beekeeping. I would like to follow and learn as much as I can about beekeeping over the next few months. Contact if you are interested. It would really help me out.

Thanks,
Nadine

Not sure how much help a third year beekeeper in south Texas can help, but I will help as much as I can.

I'll play Maam.  I will probably just skew your data because I am not very cultured.  It intrigues me what beekeepers would have to offer an anthropologist.   A lot of different sub sections of society here who's only point of intersection is the love of injections of formic acid.

Find forum member bud1 and send him a PM. He is just up the road from you. He loves his bees, people, and visitors. He is as fine a man and beekeeper as you will find, and full of knowledge.

Nadine, I live between Hiway 29 and Ovett.  I am a member of a local bee club that meets on the 4th Saturday night at 7:00, lots usually start getting there a little after 6.  We meet at the Laurel Dixie Electirc building.  There are lots of beeks around the Hattiesburg area.

Cultural anthropology?  So you want to answer the question of why there is a culture of people who are crazy enough to keep stinging insects as pets?

It sounded like an interesting project... studying beekeeping from a cultural anthropology point of view...

hadn't thought of that.... my brain does not work that way... anthropology seems like a total waste of time to me.......  so i didn't even ponder it as it related to beekeeping!

Well, we know that humans have been interacting with bees for tens of thousands of years. This interaction has resulted in the innovation of many creative (crafty) and interesting cultural artifacts. And, like with dogs, humans have had an impact on bees as well. Think of the size of bees for one thing. And this doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of the possibilities. I can definitely see how a cultural anthropologist might be interested in studying the interaction between humans and bees.

And some would say the bee's biggest gift to us is not honey.

They gave us air conditioning. How would life be today without it?

Sorry you guys. The other forum I'm with sends me notifications when I get a response and I didn't expect as many responses as I have received on beemaster. Thank you for all of your help. stanisr and crane, I will keep you in mind. I have actually met bud1 before and filmed him doing beekeeping. I don't know if he remembers Mike's daughter from Geiger. I'll be there April 2.
Also, thanks Joe D. If I can get off next Saturday night, I'll come to Laurel.
Gmcharlie, I am looking for anything, but mostly suggestions. I'm in my second semester of grad school and do not take comps and propose my thesis until the fall so I'm just exploring the field like my advisor suggested.
Again, sorry about taking so long to reply. Will check forum more often.

do a study on how and why water vapor sets back a bee colony
 
one can find lots of info, pics, vids, and blogs, hand wringing too.

seldom do new bee keepers move forward and learn from previous knowledge.

some think their bees would not be survivors, if attempts are made to rectify a problem.

most times we, one does not amputate an infection?

one should understand why a commercial be keeper would not insulate a hive multiply his costs over a back yard beek 1,000 2,000 times

Thank you, Jay and buzzbee
My dad is not Beefarmers. His name is something like Noxubee.
Also, thank you, Tom K-B for helping explain the relationship between humans and bees.
