Introducing a Blog: The Geek Anthropologist

I was surfing the web over breakfast (as one does) and found a fellow anthropology site bearing the cute name The Geek Anthropologist that I thought many of our readers would like. It is a community blog run by anthropology student Marie-Pierre Renaud  of Laval University (Quebec city, Canada) which deals with “geekiness, online communities and science-fiction” through the lens of socio-cultural anthropology.  The posts explore issues such as geek identity, the representation of ethnic groups in science-fiction and the importance of video games in people’s lives.

So, once you’ve made that second Monday morning coffee, Stop Wasting Time Online: Read an Anthropology Blog instead!
