Check ‘em out after the jump. Continue reading
I’m starting the process of relocating, so thanks for your patience. Here’s what you may have missed: a digest of some of the best of what the internet has to offer anthropologists this week. If you have something that you’d like me to share next week, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter @dtpowis.
Onward. Continue reading
I survived Georgia, and it appears that it’s been another slow week on the anthroblogosphere. Here’s what I’ve managed to put together for your reading pleasure. If you have an article you’d like me to review for next week, shoot me an email at email@example.com or on Twitter @dtpowis.
Away we go! Continue reading
I’m currently participating and observing a family on vacation just outside of Macon, Georgia. I even gambled on last night’s NASCAR race (and won). Anyway, I was able to sneak away to provide this Digest of articles from the past week that I think you should read. If you have or write a blog or article that you’d like me to check out for next week’s Digest, please let me know by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or on Twitter at @dtpowis.
Alright, y’all. Continue reading
Everyone must be on vacation this week, because it has been crickets. We still have some excellent news and blog articles for your consumption though, so kick up your feet and dig in. If you find or write an article this week that you’d like me to check out for next week’s Digest, shoot it my way at email@example.com or on Twitter at @dtpowis.
Let’s get this show on the road. Continue reading
A day late and a dollar short! Just kidding – no one gets paid for this (I think). Here’s what you missed last week. If you have any articles that you’d like me to check out for next week, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter @dtpowis.
Let’s do this. Continue reading
This week, because there was just so much to round up, I’m going to try something new. I’m fleshing out a new system here, in order to organize the articles that I share. Hopefully, this will help you find the articles you’re interested in, faster. You’ll find that the links below are now sorted into stories “by anthropologists,” “about anthropology,” and “for anthropologists.”
The stories by anthropologists (and friends) are generally going to be blog articles that are written by anthropologists, or at the very least, strongly related to anthropology (e.g. the articles by Anne Fausto-Sterling and Michael Eisen below).
The stories about anthropology are those that are not written by anthropologists, but feature particular anthropologists or the practice of anthropology.
The stories for anthropologists are articles that would be of interest to anthropologists. They may feature anthropological or sociological themes, news about anthropology blogs (e.g. revamps), or articles on academia and higher education.
As usual, if you come across or write an article that you’d like me to share next week, please email me at email@example.com or follow me on Twitter at @dtpowis.
Without further ado… Continue reading
After a little two week hiatus, I’m back to bring you what internet-offerings you may have missed in the last seven days. If you come across any news or blog articles that you think I should share next week, please send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter at @dtpowis.
Let’s go! Continue reading
Well, that wraps up Finals Week – for most Americans, anyway. If you’re finally sitting down to catch up on some of the things you might have missed, I’ve got you covered. If you have any news or blogs that you’d like me to share next week, hit my inbox at email@example.com or on Twitter @dtpowis.
On y va! Continue reading
Ladies. Gentlemen. I’ll be your host today, as we navigate some of last week’s most interesting pieces that the internet has to offer – to anthropologists anyway. Today, our selection is about 50% larger than usual. I can’t offer one article that stands above the rest, but like last week, there is a small selection: Pay special attention to the works of Janelle Taylor, Todd Meyers, and Adrienne Strong.
If you’ll allow me a moment of a reflexivity: I’m starting to notice a trend in my own posts – race, gender, reproduction – and I thought that perhaps I should move away from those topics as a way to provide a better, well-rounded digest…and then I decided that if you wanted something different, you’d tell me or find another digest – of which there are many. (And yet, there is no metadigest. Someone should get on that.) Anyway, if you have a blog post or news item that you think I should mention in my digest, please let me know by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or via Twitter @dtpowis.
After you. Continue reading
Hello folks. Here’s the news that you might have missed this week, if your 4/20 was as crazy as mine (which is to say, crazy with grocery shopping, house tidying, box packing, and the like. Oh drugs? No. I don’t have time for that.) Lots of news this week, but not a whole lot from the anthro-blogosphere. (We are a couple weeks from the end of the semester, so I imagine people are preoccupied for the moment.) If you have any news or blogs that you want to share with me, please, shoot me an email at email@example.com or hit up on Twitter @dtpowis.
Alright, let’s do this. Continue reading
Happy Sunday, folks! Here’s a roundup of what you might have missed last week. If you read only one thing, check out Sarah Kendzior’s article on minimum wage workers in St. Louis. I also highly recommend the BORDERLAND website that NPR has put together. As usual, if you have any news or blogs that you want me to share, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or hit up on Twitter @dtpowis.
Onward! Continue reading
A day late and a dollar short. I had some trouble getting home from the Central States Anthropological Society meeting in Normal, IL, but I made it! These links still cover the week of April 6th, so nothing has changed there, but this list is shorter than normal. So anyway, if you have any suggestions for articles or blogs, please don’t hesitate to email me at email@example.com or find me on Twitter @dtpowis.
Distract yourself from grading or writing up a final paper; here’s what you (and I) missed last week. Continue reading
This week was a blast, especially April Fool’s Day. Hopefully, you didn’t miss our very own Twainian satire, “Counterpoint: Good Americans should pay their debts, thank Sallie Mae,” or the Buzzfeedian listicle, “11 Cutting-Edge Thinkers That Anthropologists Should Be Paying Attention to Right Now!” Thank you all for sharing the latter – it was great fun to put together. If you sent me an angry email that was quickly followed up by an apology, or an angry tweet that was quickly deleted, don’t worry – you weren’t the only one. As usual, if you have any links or blogs that you want me to share, send them my way at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter @dtpowis.
Here’s what you missed this week: Continue reading
You guys. There were so many good articles this week. Excellent, excellent articles. I was pretty overwhelmed, to be honest, especially when I was trying to select the one article that I wanted to highlight this week. I can’t put them all up, but I think I’ve picked some of the best (or at least thought-provoking). As always, if you have any links that you want to share, please send them my way at email@example.com or on Twitter @dtpowis.
To the Digest! Continue reading
