I just published a short essay in The Atlantic about my days checking gas lines. It illustrates how much of our infrastructure is designed to channel substances that we can’t fully control.
I just published an article titled Trail Trees: Living Artifacts (Vivifacts) of Eastern North America with my colleagues Brad Painter and Cailín Murray. It’s featured in the open access journal Ethnobiology Letters and it’s freely available to all.
The Culture & Agriculture Section of the American Anthropological Association is looking to expand its online and social media presence though a remunerated Web Fellow position. Ideally, candidates should hold (or be working toward) a graduate degree in anthropology and have interests in the relationship between culture and agriculture. If you have any questions about the position, please don’t hesitate to contact me or Lisa Markowitz, the current president of C&A.
Yesterday, the Community Circle was featured on the front page of the Star Press newspaper with an article by Seth Slabaugh titled Tiny Park, ‘Enormous Collaboration’.
This past weekend, we installed pavers at the new park at the corner of Cherry and Main. The Old West End Neighborhood Association voted to officially name it “Community Circle.” We will hold another work day on May 16th, starting at 1:30 pm. We intend to finish putting pavers down in the circle and begin planting.
