Anthropology Report – a new blog on anthropology

Anthropology Report aims to make that connection. It highlights the best and most recent updates from anthropology blogs, journals, books, and fresh news from real anthropologists. Google is now prioritizing freshness and frequent updates. Although anthropology bloggers and researchers typically work on a more thoughtful and slower time-cycle, a collective but edited selection can make a difference.

Please help the effort by sharing articles and keeping connected through social media. Grateful for donations, which will go directly to search-engine ad buys and promoting the site. Also, if you have a blog or website, please consider adding a link.

Anthropology Reports is also conducting a survey on the top ten anthropology blogsย
