Mogollon Conference - Day 1

After leaving Phoenix at 6:00 am and discovering somewhere along the way that New Mexico is currently in a different (i.e. later) time zone, I somehow still made it to the conference in Las Cruces just in time for the first presentation following the lunch break.

Chuck Adams from the UofA kicked off a series of presentations on the use of space for rituals in the pueblos. Adams is the director of the Homol'ovi…

What now? A non-trad anthro student considers the options

As a non-traditional student, I often find myself re-planning my future. A new school year has begun, and for the first time in a long time, I am not registered for any courses.... so something is up, and I need to once again evaluate what my future holds in terms of anthropology.

I have completed all the anthropology coursework for my B.A., and only two Spanish courses stand between me and a relatively useless degree. I'm rapidly approaching 50 years of age, and after some frank… Continue

Open Access: "Stop worrying about journals and learn to love repositories"

Mike Smith has a terrific posting about a scientific discipline (High Energy Physics) that created their own online repository for papers over ten years ago, and a recent paper that concludes that citations of these papers are five times those not archived.

600 Members

Arbitrary though it may be (it's only a round number because we happen to represent our numbers in base 10), 600 seems like a significant milestone.

I'm really pleased to see that some of the groups are really taking off: Starting collaborative projects, planning seminars, creating Wiki sites to store their collaborative fruits.

I wish I had more time to join and keep up with every group!

I hope that everyone finds what they're looking for at OAC, and if they… Continue
