The Culture & Agriculture section of the AAAs is beginning our “Notes from the Field” collaborative blog project this summer. We invite all members of C&A who will be conducting research in the field this summer to participate. This includes, but is not limited to, undergraduate students, graduate students and professors alike. We hope that this inclusive project will provide a space for conversing about field experiences, fresh research, and possibly lead to more collaborative projects.
Contributions to Notes from the Field will be posted as they are received. Please email all submissions to Mary Beth Schmid (the current C&A webmaster), firstname.lastname@example.org . The submissions will be reviewed and posted in a timely manner throughout the summer. We are hoping to post at least one entry a week throughout June and July. I will send out reminders about this project throughout the summer through our listserv.
Contributions can include videos, photo essays as well as written essays. There is a 2,500 word limit. This is a forum meant to encourage discussions and to give people a chance to introduce and work out ideas for articles and other larger pieces of work. Please feel free to be creative and to send in shorter pieces.
At any point throughout the year, you can email the C&A webmaster to request that links and/or current news regarding anthropology, culture, and agriculture be posted on our blog. If you have any questions or concerns, email Mary Beth at the email address provided above.
