Hi Keith, thanks a lot for the invitation. Thanks to you I am willing to be a member of a network of this format. The Memory Bank is a different setting but that format fitted better to my virtual life pace. Thanks to you this will be a new matrix of participation.
It is very nice to see some of my colleagues from Oslo here (Hei Marinne og Knut).
Hi Keith, congratulations for your initiative, Anthropology cannot but be open and not academic and limited, I am publishing in July an article on the new trends of the field since the new Millenium in the special volume of the Indian journal Anthropologist so, I am vividly interested on exchanges of opinions as during the pioneer effort of 3a ( 3 little a) 10 years ago. Really , what happenned to Meraud ? You have any news of him ?
Hi Keith! I am on! A true beginner in web-based discussions like this, but excited to be on and to see what comes out of it! And to be reminded of what I want to think more about, when time allows.
Warm regards, Marianne
Good to hear from you. Will you be in South Africa in June? I will be there June /July with Global Studio, and we will work in Diepsloot again. We start June 27 and finish July 20 with the Diepsloot arts in culture festival. There's some information on the web about last year if you want to take a look. http://www.theglobalstudio.com.
All the best
Thanks for the invitation to join your group!
I am away form the university this year (as much as possible), and excavating in the mountains in Murcia (S Spain) a large proto-city belonging to the first State society of western Europe/Mediterranean (El Agrar c. 2200-1550 BCE). It ended dramatically (we are thinking of social riot/uprise) and we are finding excellent remains. Still hope to look from time to time at Internet what you are proposing.
