Around the Web Digest

We like to read at Savage Minds and we like to share. Around the Web is our a monthly collection of internet flotsam ostensibly of interest to anthropologists. There’s some news and politics, a few timewasters, and academia stories mixed in with reports about evolution, culture, and methodology. You can follow us @savageminds, like us on Facebook, or wait for them to be collected here. Here’s what we were reading in the month of May.

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.
