AS K. Chandrasekhara Rao observed his fast and activists demanding a separate Telangana state agitated on the streets, there were many appeals urging the movement not to adopt violent methods, and not all of them were from the government. Some respected voices within the movement, and leaders of social movements sympathetic to the statehood demand stressed the importance of a peaceful… Continue
Recently I read a paper co-authored by a number of social network social scientists on the dynamics of the news cycle as evidenced by a medium-grained examination of the diffusion and transformation of phrase variants across the web. The authors, Leskovec, Backstrom, and Kleinberg, have a supporting web site, http://memetracker.org. Its worth a look.
Leskovec, Backstrom, and Kleinberg note that the two principal approaches to the… Continue

The link between Mind and Social / Environmental-Issues.
The fast-paced, consumerist lifestyle of Industrial Society is causing exponential rise in psychological problems besides destroying the environment. All issues are interlinked. Our Minds cannot be peaceful when attention-spans are down to nanoseconds, microseconds and milliseconds. Our Minds cannot be peaceful if we destroy Nature.
It is hardly news that the world is a flow of matter, energy, and information. It is a foundational notion of most of the sciences, and especially of ecology, which has exerted particularly significant influence on anthropological thinking. I mention this because I would like to call attention to what a theoretically sophisticated understanding of the relatively neglected third of these might offer anthropology.
I say neglected, but it really hasn't been. Those things falling under… Continue

‘Bloody hell, am I glad to see you, brother.’ Gene shook my hand hard and patted my back and straight away began talking in long reverberating sentences about how great it was to see his old reliable mate. He gushed with the type of enthusiasm I hadn’t heard since campus days. I grabbed my pack from under the bus. I felt ten feet tall.

Instead of explaining my whole reserch I will just point some thoughts that pass through my head (it can be really tiring writing all over again about one´s themes).
Right now I am thinking if anti-semitism in 19th century Europe isn´t very deeply rooted in judeo-christian cosmology. The trend amongst reserchers/scholars is to differentiate rather sharply between the medieval anti-judaism and modern anti-semitism. Although there are obviously important differences, I ask myself if… Continue
