We’ve decided to host something that has not been done before – the first yearly edition of The Best of Anthropology Blogging. An increasing number of anthropologists are blogging about their work and their ideas, sharing how anthropology in all its forms is relevant to the wider world.
We are going to bring that together into one great “Best of” package. It is time to show off what we do! And then get some press for it!!
Here are our submission guidelines. We have two categories, most popular post and a self-selected best post. For the most popular post, please send in the title and link for your most popular post during 2008, as well as a brief reflection (1-2 lines) on why you think this one turned out to be the most popular.
For the self-selected best post, you get to choose what your best post is. For single-authored blogs, you can send in one entry. For multi-authored blogs, feel free to send in two entries. (More than that, and it might get to a really long “best of” post…). Please send in the title, the author, and the link for your best post.
Update: Nominations by blog readers accepted too! If there is some post you loved at an anthropology blog, please send it to me. Include a brief description of why this post is a great one! So this is now our third category, reader-nominated posts. (Or participant-observation posts, to make a really lame joke.)
All submissions should go to Daniel Lende at the email dlende at nd dot edu
Submissions are due December 29th (though earlier would be much appreciated). The “Best of” post will go up on the 31st.
If you have any suggestions or points on how to make the “Best of Anthropology Blogging” better, please feel free to comment below or email us. We welcome ideas that can help turn this into something which will highlight why anthropology blogging deserves an even wider audience than it presently has.
