Among King’s publications are The Information Continuum (1994) and two edited volumes, The Origins of Language (1999) and Anthropology Beyond Culture (with Richard G. Fox, 2002). With co-author Stuart Shanker, she has two articles in press, using DST to analyze great ape gesture (one in Anthropology Theory, the other in Behavioral and Brain Sciences). As a Guggenheim Fellow for the academic year 2002-03, she is writing a book about "the dynamic dance" of great ape social communication.
King is currently on the editorial board of Sign Language Studies. The Teaching Company selected her to create and teach Roots of Human Behavior, an audio- and video-course, released in 2001; her second course, Biological Anthropology: Humans in Evolutionary Perspective was taped in summer 2002 and will be released before the end of the year. King’s other teaching honors include the Virginia State Council of Higher Education’s Outstanding Faculty Award (1998) and being named one of William and Mary’s University Professors for Teaching Excellence (1999-2002).
