Here’s a quick round-up from the road. As per last week’s comments thread, feel free to post other articles in comments.
Anthropology in Space: Hot Cup of Joe is hosting the Four Stone Hearth this month, and the result is stellar. The Pulp Sci-Fi Edition of Four Stone Hearth has a lot of great contributions, including an opportunity to pimp this guy’s grant proposal.
Ethnography of Oil: Responding to an editorial in Anthropology Today (need permission to access), Lorenz at antropologi.info pulled together articles on the impact of growing oil prices on everyday life around the world.
Lost Tribes of London: Photographer and stylist Ari Versluis and Ellie Uyttenbroek (respectively) have mounted a show in London on “Tribalising Fashion.” True to their inspiration of 19th century salvage anthropology, the team consists of one who snaps the pictures and one who poses the ‘natives.’ [On a side note: the picture of a ‘bear‘ in this article looks completely indistinguishable from a football-watching big dude. They might have tried to gay it up a little.]
Personal Histories: Middle Savagery posted videos of a series of lectures at Cambridge from Meg Conkey, Ruth Tringham, Henrietta Moore, and Alison Wylie on Personal History and Archaeological Theory. Parts 2 and 3 are here.
