Confessions of an Anthropological Geek

Confessions of an Anthropological Geek

For as long as I can remember, I have been a geek. When all my other classmates were socializing or playing outside on their weekends, I was in my basement buried in the complicated task of building complex, intricate worlds. Sure, I would play outside, but my neighbor and I would invent fantastical quests, transforming a shrub into a secret fortress and collecting flowers to mix into “magical potions.” At sleepovers, when my friends would pile around the TV to watch the latest Mary-Kate and Ashley movie, I’d slink away to watch Titan A.E with their brothers.

Greetings loyal readers and newcomers!

I have been AFK (away from keyboard) for a while, as I was busy writing, then presenting a paper in Finland, among other things, but I am back with some great news!

First of all, TGA has new contributors! Emma Louise Backe and Nicholas Mizer will be publishing their first post shortly about their interests in anthropology and their ties to their geek background. Look out for the very interesting pieces they have lined up for upcoming months. You can find out more about them here.
