"Lee, I think this is a great exploration of Trumpianism. There is one feature that stands out, that I found particularly interesting--the naturalisation of the differences between Libl and Con. Con news personalities are pneumatic, Lib newspeople…"

Fake News: The Trump Phenomenon

In December 2016 I hosted a Forum, “Anthropologists on the Trump Election” that ran into April 2017.  It was a lively discussion, and encouraged me to continue trying to frame an anthropological account of the phenomenon of Trump.  The result, now completed, is a 60,000-word essay, “Ontology and Orange Hair: Reality and Reelity in Donald Trump’s America.” A section of that essay, dealing with a major issue in pre- and post-election America, “fake news” is posted here. Fake News  Words, Words,…See More

"Hi, Lee. If we ask why Open Access journals don’t add Open Comment, isn’t the answer pretty simile? As OAC on Ning demonstrated, open comment produces occasional interesting discussion; but the norm is a flood of trivia and…"

Hard Times for Online Anthropology

Online anthropology, specifically that rare variant Open Access - Open Comment, should be flourishing, what with the freedom of expression of social media.  Instead, it seems to be faltering.  This site, which I've long regarded as the gold standard for in-depth intellectual discussion of anthropological issues, is on permanent hold.  Its banner announcement that it is "migrating to NEW site!" has become a bit threadbare, since it was made over a year ago.  And when you click on…See More

Merry Christmas! . . . oops, I mean . . .

Inspired by Freeman Dyson's "Heretical Thoughts on Science and Society":  

A Christmas Story

 

The Scene: 

    It’s Christmas 2025.  The Donald, having forced through a constitutional amendment, is into his third term.  True to his early campaign promise, he’s driven Starbucks into bankruptcy and got…

Lee, I notice you are looking to debate Chagnon etc. The best option is to open a 'forum' thread on that topic. You just click on + Add discussion (bottom left of that box).

cheers, Huon
