But I was really impressed by Kollmann’s deep knowledge of all things anthropological. The deployment is the culmination of her two decades of expertise
Today I woke up to the usual quarterly flow of new journal alerts into my inbox and was surprised ? delighted, really ? to see a very complimentary article in the latest American Anthropologist on Savage Minds, Zero Anthropology, and the AAA blog. In another proof of its incredible capacity to do the work of our association, AnthroSource has the article behind a paywall while Wiley-Blackwell has it available for everyone to read (here is the abstract and you can download the PDF here sorry here is the actual link). GG AAA.
Yesterday?s Baltimore Sun featured the article ?Towson Professor to Leave for Haiti to Identify US Remains,? profiling forensic anthropologist Dana Kollmann, whose previous work includes investigations of Baltimore County crime scenes and mass graves in the former Yugoslavia.

As evidence of the growing recognition of blogging as an important medium for scholarly exchange, American Anthropologist has published a review article (PDF) about anthropology blogging by David Price. Okay, the article is primarily about Savage Minds, Zero Anthropology and the triple-A?s own blog, but I was more than chuffed to see Culture Matters also got a mention when Price referred to the ?high scholarship shown in detailed and thoughtful postings and exchanges by scholars?. It?s very nice indeed to be mentioned in the same breath as Savage Minds, which is after all the blog we?d like to be when we grow up.
