Kendzior: In Defense of Complaining

Mon, 27 Mar 2017 03:57:38 +0000

This was meant to be a book review. Instead, it’s an essay about the power—and importance—of complaining.[1] The book under consideration here is Sarah Kendzior’s The View from Flyover Country, which was published in 2015. In case you don’t know, Kendzior is an anthropologist-turned-journalist whose academic work on authoritarianism turned out to be just slightly … Continue reading Kendzior: In Defense of Complaining



Pandora’s Brew: The New Ayahuasca Part 4

Sun, 26 Mar 2017 22:54:37 +0000

Ayahuasca Healings Last week (March 18, 2017), I received an email that read, in toto: Just like I promised: Get the free eBook here (right click, “Save Link As…”) I wrote this back in 2010, and the secrets contained within this eBook, have allowed me to create and live the most beautiful, fulfilling life I … Continue reading Pandora’s Brew: The New Ayahuasca Part 4



Pandora’s Brew: The New Ayahuasca Part 3

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 02:55:18 +0000

Part 3: Legality (or lack thereof) (In the last post, I promised to start this one with some explanation of what goes into ayahuasca that makes it the concern of the US Drug Enforcement Agency, and why some people in the U.S. can drink it legally while others can’t. Here goes.) Ayahuasca is most commonly defined … Continue reading Pandora’s Brew: The New Ayahuasca Part 3

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 00:21:04 +0000

Scholars of the Pacific are mourning the loss of Teresia Teaiwa this week.

Rogue: Scholarly Responsibility in the Time of Trump

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 13:07:55 +0000

What if scholars need to go rogue? If anthropologists need to go rogue? In the USA right now, we are not in normal times, but in a new period of attack on academia and science, on facts and funding, on communities with whom anthropologists conduct their research, and on communities to which anthropologists belong. Our … Continue reading Rogue: Scholarly Responsibility in the Time of Trump

Falling in love with @MerriamWebster in the era of Trump (and his budget proposals)

Sun, 19 Mar 2017 13:09:37 +0000

I grew up with dictionaries. I have had my own dictionary for as long as I can remember. Even now, when I walk by one of those BIG dictionaries on a pedestal in the library, with the leather binding and almost translucent thin paper, I will run my finger down the page and read the … Continue reading Falling in love with @MerriamWebster in the era of Trump (and his budget proposals)



Open Access and Anthro in Community Colleges: HELLZ YES.

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 22:29:38 +0000

I was originally going to title this post #OA & @SACC : HELLZ YES, but I was afraid that would be too hard to understand. But what isn’t too hard to understand is the bang-up job that the Society for Anthropology in Community Colleges is doing  to advance open access in anthropology. First, they create … Continue reading Open Access and Anthro in Community Colleges: HELLZ YES.

Editing Wikipedia > Writing Letters to the New York Times

Mon, 06 Mar 2017 23:17:13 +0000

Various bits of social media began vibrating rapidly recently when it was discovered that white supremacists had fooled Google into providing inaccurate information about Boas and cultural relativism. The situation is now apparently resolved, but it isn’t a new problem. Old-timey internet veterans will remember that martinlutherking.org has been run by Stormfront for, like, decades. … Continue reading Editing Wikipedia > Writing Letters to the New York Times



Pandora’s Brew: The New Ayahuasca Part 2

Mon, 06 Mar 2017 02:06:30 +0000

Part 2: The New Ayahuasca Churches Yesterday I sat in on a webinar sponsored by ICEERS (the International Center for Ethnobotanical Education, Research and Service) and organized by anthropologist Bia Labate. Entitled “Myths and Realities about the Legality of Ayahuasca in the USA,” the webinar featured three experts on the subject. The first was Jeffrey Bronfman, … Continue reading Pandora’s Brew: The New Ayahuasca Part 2



Pandora’s Brew: The New Ayahuasca

Sun, 05 Mar 2017 01:31:58 +0000

Savage Minds welcomes guest blogger Christina Callicott. I’m guessing that by now most of my readers will have heard of this stuff called “ayahuasca.” Everyone from Stephen Colbert to the New Yorker is talking about it, some in terms more cringe-inducing than others. A quick primer for those who don’t know: Ayahuasca is a psychoactive (read: … Continue reading Pandora’s Brew: The New Ayahuasca

Around the Web Digest- February 20

Thu, 02 Mar 2017 00:07:39 +0000

Yesterday was Fat Tuesday and in old Chicago tradition, I tried to grab a paczki from my favorite bakery. Unfortunately, in my own personal tradition, I came back empty handed. However, I do not come back empty handed here and I bring new readings for the week! Anthropologists live the mantra “talk s**t, get hit” … Continue reading Around the Web Digest- February 20



The Resonance of Earth, Other Worlds, and Exoplanets

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 15:15:14 +0000

How do planetary scientists understand distant places like Mars or planets orbiting another star? A conversation with Lisa Messeri about “resonance” and the anthropology of space. By Michael P. Oman-Reagan Yesterday, NASA announced the discovery of seven Earth-sized exoplanets (planets outside of our solar system) orbiting the star TRAPPIST-1. This is the most known rocky … Continue reading The Resonance of Earth, Other Worlds, and Exoplanets
