The first issue of the new project "anthropologies" is up! Thanks to Alyson O'Daniel, Megan Maurer, David Picard, Stacie Gilmore, and Keith Hart for helping me get this first issue up and running. Check it out and (more importantly) comment and post your responses to the conversation. This is definitely meant to be a project that invites collaboration, participation, and input--so fire away. Things get most interesting when they turn into a conversation, and I look forward to seeing what develops. For that reason, I have added an Open Thread for this issue where I hope some people will share their ideas of what anthropology is all about. Check out the about page to see some of the ideas for upcoming issues. This project is just starting to take shape, so who knows what shape it will take? The next one is going to be about anthropology and tourism. If you're interested in participating in a future issue, or have ideas about particular themes or issues that should be tackled, post a comment here, or send me an email (here at the OAC or at ethnografix at gmail dot com).
