Around the Web Digest

Is it just me or were our tweets a little anemic in the month of April? It seems we here at Savage Minds were pretty busy with end of the semester madness. Nonetheless here in handy digest form is everything we saw fit to share over the last four weeks on the topics of anthropology, academia, politics, and a couple of things on Mongolia I had lying around in my bookmarks. If you’ve seen something around the web that you’d like to share with the Savage Minds community send me the links in an email, MDTHOMPS @ODU.EDU. And if you want to hang on our every word this summer but haven’t already signed up go ahead and follow us on Twitter @savageminds or like our Facebook page which is pretty much the same thing but, you know, on Facebook.

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.
