It’s about time for another edition of Four Stone Hearth. It’s an honor to host the carnival here at Clashing Culture because anthropology is one of the main areas where discussion about religion and culture is founded in scientific method. I’ll be compiling the best entries from anthropology blogs over the past few weeks, but need your help in submitting entries. If you’ve not read Four Stone Hearth before, here is the general idea:
For the purposes of the Four Stone Hearth, anthropology is the study of humankind, throughout all times and places, focusing primarily on four lines of research:
- socio-cultural anthropology
- bio-physical anthropology
- linguistic anthropology
Each one of these subfields is a stone in our hearth.
And with Carnival of the Liberals (by Mike) and Four Stone Hearth hosted here on the same day, hopefully we will get some good cross-fertilization. When you send me your entries, please let me know which corner of the hearth you are representing. (That’s tom[underscore]robey[at]yahoo[dot]com…) I’d appreciate your entries by Tuesday 9PM PDT.
Be sure to gather ’round next Wednesday.
