Around the Web Digest

With all the lively debate here at the blog, maybe you’ve missed the fun we’ve been having on the @savageminds twitter feed and Facebook page. There you’ll find fresh daily links to internet flotsam that’s semi-interesting and even occasionally relevant to anthropology! Once a month I collect all the tweets and post them here. Below are some of the news stories, blog posts, book reviews, and more that we read in the month of January. If you’ve seen something you’d like to share with the Savage Minds community send email me at MDTHOMPS at ODU.EDU.

Matt Thompson is adjunct assistant professor of anthropology in the Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice at Old Dominion University and a student in the School of Information Science at the University of Tennessee. He was once cast as a soldier in Andrew Jackson's army in a theatrical production on an Indian reservation.
