Lev Michael has long been an excellent contributor to discussions here on Savage Minds, but I hadn’t noticed that he recently started his own blog. Although for the past few weeks he’s been linking to it in his comments, I hadn’t noticed until I read this post recommending his blog on Language Hat.
Lev is a Ph.D. candidate in the excellent linguistic anthropology program at UT Austin, where he studies “the strategic use of grammatical resources in interaction, language documentation and revitalization, and language politics” in the Peruvian Amazon.
His blog, Greater Blogazonia, already has a bunch of great posts, including thoughts on Unwrapping the Sacred Bundle and this great post about “the unintentionally hilarious situation of white people referring to this indigenous Amazonian group as the ‘white people’.”
I’m really glad to see so many high quality new anthropology blogs popping up. If you’ve started a new one recently, please let us know! And don’t forget to add it to the Academic Blog Wiki. Someday we’ll update our blogroll…
