Presenting Anthropology to become (at least slightly) public anthropologists this semester, it's only fair I should blog about how the course is shaping up and what we've been discussing. I've already posted the syllabus (and you can get a PDF through the AAA's teaching materials exchange), but the reading list is more of an evolving pile of links to various media. So I thought I'd post the list for each topic (two weeks of course time covers the reading and the class presentations on that topic) as we move through the semester. I'll post the "required media consumption list" before class, then either revisit this post or make a new one with additions from students and links to their public projects after class.
Feel free to read along with us and use the comment section below!
