John Jackson, professor of communications and anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania, writes regularly over at Brain Storms: Annals of the Mind, hosted through The Chronicle of Higher Education. He has some great posts, and as I searched for anthro blogs to hopefully include in The Best of Anthropology Blogging 2008, I found Jackson’s other blog, From the Annals of Anthroman.
Both Jackson’s blogging at Brain Storms and Annals of Anthroman represent public anthropology and communication at the highest level, so I do hope you check his writing out. Here’s the post An Election Irony, on how John McCain turned into the racial candidate. And Spike Lee on Spike Lee is also a great read about Jackson’s course on Spike Lee at UPenn, including a visit from the master filmmaker himself.
