Here are the questions, right up front and center: 1) What drew you to anthropology?; 2) What does anthropology offer that might be missing from our education systems? 3) How and why should we teach…Continue

No funding? Don't Go!! (on getting a PhD in anthropology)

Well, it’s that time of year when prospective grad students around the country are anxiously pacing around their mailboxes waiting for responses from all the PhD programs they applied to.  Many are wondering who accepted them, who rejected them, and, of course, if they got funding.  That’s the big question.  Getting a full-funding offer is the highest mark of acceptance and application success.  It’s like getting the golden seal of academic and departmental approval.  It means you’re…

Anthropologies CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: The neoliberalized, debt-plagued, low wage, corporatized university (and what can be done about it)

Hey OAC folks,

So the next issue of anthropologies is about the serious problems we are facing in academia and the university system.  The goal of the issue is to highlight some of the problems, and also open up a space to explore solutions, new ideas, or alternatives.  Here's a link to the call for submissions:

Anthropology, Politics, and #OWS (in light of recent events at UC Davis)

When I see videos like this:

...it makes me think about the borders between academia and politics. Specifically, I'm thinking about anthropology. I don't think that anthropology can be defined in any one way, and I certainly don't think that the discipline (in its many manifestations) is some sort of political party. I don't think that's what…

Thanks for mentioning American Ethnography on your blog! It's much appreciated!

PS. There's a typo: "... is definitely work a look." I suppose it should be "... is definitely worth a look."

You should do that. Wait ... "A couple of my projects?" How many projects do I have? :)

Great photos!

Glad it was of some use, Ryan. The Ning thing preoccupies us, but we wait for an announcement of their new terms and conditions.

Justin suggested that I cross-post stuff from my blog, but I felt it wasn't a real blog. What you have done is much more promising. We can invite members who are already bloggers to cross-post here. I have a response to your post, but I'll save it for later.

Thanks, Ryan. It was your idea really. All we have to do now is to persuade one or two others to do the same. Perhaps then we will get nearer to individuals doing their partly synthetic thing on the home page without asking people to sign up for a common manifesto.

Hi Ryan, Nice blog post at Ethnografix. As it happens, I sent off a text on economic anthropology to the publishers this weekend.No obligation of course, but you might find something in it. It took a lot of effort and a long time to write, partly because my co-author insisted on a dumbing down strategy and I wanted to go the other wayHann&Hart Econanth 6 March revised.doc. You will see.

Ryan Anderson - I held these photographs in a drawer for nearly 4 years because I had no information about the persons I was photographing. I was in the restricted autonomous district of Karbi Anglong in Eastern Assam studying Karbi music and musical instruments. At the time there were atrocities committed against rural Karbi people a few hours north of Diphu (these were never reported in the Indian or Western media). I was invited (seen as a neutral party) to be involved in the writing of a peace accord that was then adopted by leaders representing the Karbis and Kukis inhabiting the conflict area. In any event, I had only one afternoon to roam the Diphu marketplace to buy some fresh fruit and to capture some images of the market place. These images are of people of infinite value and worth - deserving of an opportunity to share their stories. But this could not happen then. Perhaps in sharing a bit about this place unknown to so many people, more would come to appreciate the intersection of Indigenous and Dravidian cultures. My attempt was to capture images of beauty and dignity in the people of Diphu - never to do them harm. But I like your approach and your critique - 100% valid and appreciated. Next time I'll do better (smile)
