May The Fourth Be with You!

How do anthropologists celebrate May the 4th? By reading anthropological articles of course!

Head over to Anthropology News to read May The Folk be With You, a piece on Star Wars and folklore by TGA’s own Nick Mizer.

Our archives are also filled with fascinating pieces about Star Wars for you to enjoy and share on this auspicious day!

Learn more about the 501st Legion in Emily Jackson’s Fan Activism and the 501st Legion: Be the Change You Wish to see in the Galaxy or reflect on storytelling in Nick Mizer’s Storytelling and Worldbuilding in The Force Awakens. Finally, check out Emma Backe’s 2015 in Review: Geek Girls and Gender in which she explores representations of women in pop culture using, among others, the example of Star Wars: The Force Awakens character Rey.
