I recently subscribed to the Extreme History Project Blog—(motto: “History isn’t pretty.”)
They’ve had some good (and short!) posts—including these three:
- “What indigenous people look like”
- “Is your Halloween costume respectful or offensive” (no longer seasonal but still thought-provoking).
Their blog also led me to “This is Anthropology,” a presentation developed in response to a Florida governor’s statement criticizing spending education funding on majors like anthropology—but which is actually a really good answer to the “what do you do with an anthropology degree” and could get students thinking about careers they never considered.
What blogs/listservs do you subscribe to that you think I (or other educators) would find worthwhile? Let me know and I’ll compile a list.
