It’s been a busy start to the new (academic) year, despite the lack of actual visible activity on this blog, as we’ve had some behind-the-scenes action (which mean the editor actually did some entirely non-sarcastic work, check it out!). The big change we have is that we have a New One on board as a contributor to the Anthropology As Universe. Dr. Jennifer Long joined the MacEwan anthropology department in July, and because we knew she had a history of blogging, and was generally awesome, we basically made her join our team. Dr. Long will be “The Cultural One” around here, and will bring that perspective to her observations about, well, whatever she feels like observing about.
We’ve added an introduction to “The Cultural One” on the “About Us” page, where you can learn more about Dr. Long’s research and teaching interests. As we all do, Dr. Long has a few ideas in her head about topics to cover and her first posts will undoubtedly magically spring from her brain on to the virtual page any minute now.
We also remain open to guest posts from anthropologists and anthropology students, so if you think this might be a good space for you to mouth off in, fire us a comment here and we’ll talk!
