Different ways to be a dom, scholarly style
Forgive the long radio silence. I was taking a class on Text Analysis (nerd heaven for this anthropologist). Using new software (MAXQDA), I was able to re-examine some of my data. I thought I'd share the results here. Please note this analysis is only on ...

Flexing the binary
I will be presenting a paper at the European Association of Social Anthropologists  at the beginning of August on gender. I'm excited for several reasons - returning to Europe, meeting up with colleagues from Portugal, international exposure - but mostly be...

Don't panic!
