Starting in late February, you’ll see this blog active again. A reminder – it is primarily a blog for the students of ANTH 302 (Anthropological Theory) at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside.

Before we start, here’s some notes about this blog for the students in SOCA 302 in Spring 2016. Read through the previous blog posts.
