Hey everyone, I’m Nick Mizer. Marie-Pierre has graciously allowed me to contribute to this blog and share my excitement for the topic of geek anthropology and our plans for an upcoming conference session on the topic. I’m currently wrapping up my last semester of PhD coursework, and will be writing my dissertation on Dungeons & Dragons. I’ll also be presenting on geek culture at next week’s Popular Culture Association conference in DC, so if any readers of the blog will also be there, I’d love to meet!
This week I am happy to present the third interview in the Stormtrooper photography series! The first two, conducted with Stéfan Le Dû and Kristina Alexanderson, were about daily photography challenges. Today, JD Hancock kindly accepted to answer a few questions about his photo series for The Geek Anthropologist.
Last week, Paolo Jose Cruz wrote a post in answer to What I Wish I Could Unlearn From Star Trek TNG: The Prime Directive or conserving cultures like a lab sample, which I published as part of a three-part series. I figured I might as well take the time to write a decent answer, so I made a post out of it. Warning: this post contains mentions of anthropological work.
