(via AAA-blog) He was both president of the American Anthropological Association (AAA) and editor of the journal American Anthropologist. Now Walter Goldschmidt, born in 1913, is joing the growing anthropological blogging community at http://waltergoldschmidt.wordpress.com/
Electronic communication, and these things called “blogs,” represent a medium I am singularly unready for. My amanuensis has suggested that I use it to place various of my essays and monographs for public use, and I do find this appeals to me, and invite you to make what use of them you may. Among these, I shall offer presentation of a book of memoirs that I have long intended to write but am only now getting around to.
During the recent weeks and months, many other anthropologists have started blogging as well. Among others, there are two new group blog projects: Anthropoliteia - a blog about police, policing and security from an anthropological perspective and Anthropologyworks - a more general anthro blog that also provides overviews over “anthropology in the news". It is a project of the Culture in Global Affairs (CIGA) research and policy program at The George Washington University in Washington, D.C.. Then there is the blog Economics in Cultural Perspective that also looks very interesting. I’m very glad to see that two anthropologists from Scandinavia have joined us: Daniel Winfree Papuga with his blog Recontextual - Expressive culture in new formations and Johanna Sommansson who is blogging about her fieldwork in India at Anthromodernity.
Not all of them can be found on the blog overview at http://www.antropologi.info/blog/ I’ll update it later
