The Golden Bough

Links: From The Golden Bough to Digital Public Anthropology

  1. The Golden BoughPractical Training for the Digitally Il/literate Anthropologist. Good advice from guest blogger Taz Kerim at Savage Minds.
  2. Public Anthropology Conference 2013 – A Decade of Resistance. Deadline 1 August 2013. “In 2003 graduate students of the anthropology department at American University convened the first Public Anthropology Conference. This year we celebrate a decade of resistance and social justice. The 10th Annual Public Anthropology Conference seeks to reflect on what it means to resist, and the ways in which people are working to achieve social justice(s). Among the questions we seek to answer through this conference are: How has academic and popular resistance to domination and injustice changed our world in the past ten years? Where have our overtures to social justice fallen short and what must change in our analyses and approaches? We welcome your creative submissions on the following ideas, broadly envisioned, and of course your own ideas.”
  3. Summer reading… a nice open-ended thread from Matt Thompson at Savage Minds. Matt’s taking on The Golden Bough!
  4. Part 11. Humans Are Blank-ogamous. Sexaptation: The Many Functions of Sex. Patrick Clarkin strikes again!
  5. Cannibal Tours. Great reminder from David Davies of a powerful film.
  6. Anthropology in Public. A new effort from Ryan Anderson, Savage Minds blogger and editor of anthropologies project, added to Anthropology Blogs 2013.
  7. Fight Clubs: On Napoleon Chagnon. Definitely a nice and comprehensive overview of many issues at stake, something that was sometimes missing from some of the anthropology reviews I’ve seen. However, can’t help but also think this is the second time this year that The Nation has been using anthropology bloggers without proper referencing (first was on Jared Diamond).
    Update! Just received an e-mail about this from author Peter Baker, who submitted this piece for publication on 4 February, prior to much of the anthropology blogging. So glad to hear of independent convergence!
