Welcome. :)

Welcome to my blog. Here I share my successes and failures along my journey to becoming an anthropologist. My most prominent interest anthropologically are the new approaches to handing food security/healthy eating in the US, particularly in urban "food deserts". I enjoy the Anthropology of Tourism as well; combining food and tourism has scholarly promise. My other interests which have converted into anthropological hobbies of sorts include converts to Islam, diaspora of Muslims, and MENA in general. I also have some interest in historical archaeology.

I welcome comments, discussion and even respectful debating. I will however keep discussions to a respectable level. I reserve the right to ban anyone from this forum.

New paper coming soon

Ok, I am getting ready to begin paper two. I again need to compare 2 ethnographies. I did not choose well (in the beginning) from the four given soooo....these are a bit of a challenge. lol

Staging Tourism: Bodies on Display from Waikiki to Sea World.
The Red Riviera (Post-socialist tourism in Bulgaria).

I have a few ideas and I wrote down some notes....
1. I can compare the two along gender lines such as the centrality of women in the tourist industry and 2).Comparing the styles of tourism in the post-socialist period vs. after capitalism/colonialism (Hawaii). I think number one I can run with but two needs work. lol I really only need two main comparative topics other than the authors' backgrounds.

Today I am upset. My disposal is broken and has been but they do not claim it to be broken. I am irritated. I clogged it purposely to prove my point. lol I am calling tomorrow.

There are some other things I want to discuss on this blog but I am not sure who is looking here. I do not know what to do.
Peace out folks

Go with number 1.

Create a second blog that is private, ie only by invitation and needs to have you put in the email addresses of the people you are accepting to view the blog.

Ellen of Steadily Emerging with Grace did that--she announces a new post there on her main blog and only people she approved and set up with an email in the Blogger set up a blog thing can access it.

She called her second one Steadily Emerging with Grace 2
