I will leave it to the historians of wikipedia to sort out the history of Valentine’s Day. And I will leave the critique to the Huffington Post .
Today I want to publicly thank @DonnaLanclos , an anthropologist who works in a library, for storifying the results of the twitter hashtag #anthrovalentines .
My favorite tweet, and a savvy nod to the intersection of public and private interest in fieldwork, is this one:
@EthnoGraffiti I would do anything for love, but I won’t do multi-sited ethnography #anthrovalentines
And thank you everyone who contributed to the hashtag. I LOL’ed.
