Welcome to an anthropological perspective on this crazy world we live in. I will be commenting on topics that I research, conferences I attend (look for ComicCon from San Diego in July and G2E from Las Vegas in November), and fieldwork I conduct. Looking at the world through the eyes of an anthropologist can make mundane things more significant and major events easier to understand. We don’t try to explain how the world works in a cause-effect way but instead just show how people are always trying to make sense of the world around them. That, we believe, is what makes us human.
