In this installment of the seriocomic series Incidental Anthropology, I bring you three more media stories which incidentally illustrate anthropological points. Given the recent back and forth on this blog over genetics, I highly recommend the first link.
1) Why are Americans so focused on how “cognitively advanced” their children are?
2) Some thoughts on Elsevier’s purchase of Mendeley and what this might mean for Open Access and academic publishing.
3) The complex career and photography of Hiroshi Hamaya with a view towards the relation of snow and spirit.
