This is a brand new blog from a novice graduate student blogger, jump-started during Digital Writing Month 2012. It will center on anthropology, historical archaeology, and their connections to everyday life, particularly through my learning experiences with museums and public outreach. Since this is, happily, not my dissertation, readers may also risk diversions into the meaning of modernity, American labor history and issues, responses to interesting things on the internet, and possibly uninteresting accounts of what I do some days.
