The Anthropology club had very exciting meeting on Thursday, 1-29-09, with over 20 in attendance and lots of extra FREE pizza.

The new club officers were elected on and are as follows: President Venessa, Vice President Kate, Secretary Selina, Treasurer Ben, Editor in Chief Ashlee, and the new position of Liason Chrystal. The Liason position was created to  illustrate the new connections between the Antrophology Club to the Fresno County Archaeological Society.

Future meetings this semester will be held every other Thursday at 12:45pm in the Peters Business building Room 390. The dates are as follows:

-February 12th (This is Anthro day and there will be a reception from 2pm-7pm in the same room, instead of the normal meeting) and 26th

55:Anthropologist of the Fortnight

by Chrystal Kinsella

Dr. Cruz-Uribe, also known as the “Egypt guy,” has worked at Northern Arizona University for the past 15 years as Professor of History and Dean in the department of Social and Behavioral Sciences. He received his B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. at the University of Chicago. As an Egyptologist he has studied the languages, history, and religion of Egypt. Dr. Cruz-Uribe is also an expert on Tutankhamun. He recently won a Fulbright scholarship (for 2006-07) and used it to continue his research on Egyptian graffiti while teaching ancient history at the South Valley University of Egypt.

Theanthrogeek (aka Dr. James Mullooly)

I spent the last year blogging on my own about how Anthropology can be useful to non-anthropologists by popularizing or “making public” the otherwise dry theoretical content of the field.  Although I have enjoyed my work on my personal blog TheAnthroGeek [theanthrogeek.wordpress.com], I have learned that this sort of public application of anthropological theory and method could be of particular benefit to my local context in Fresno, CA (USA).

Therefore, I am teaming up with Henry Delcore, a colleague and friend to focus on a more local inspection and reflection upon how the core competencies of ethnography can be practiced in California’s Central Valley.

I recently moved into Fresno Cohousing so I will likely be talking about life in a modern day village from time to time.  This move signifies a deep and lasting bond I have forged with my new hometown of Fresno, CA.  Let’s see if practicing anthropology here can make a difference.

55:Upcoming Events:Darwin Day/Anthro Day

4 02 2009

February 12th marks the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birth. As if that isn’t a big enough deal, it’s also Anthro Day!

There will be two lectures by Dr. Ronald T. Marchese, one on the 11th and one on the 12th (see below for more information). Additionally, on Feb. 12th we will be having a reception in PB390 from about 2-7pm. Everyone is welcome. It is a great way to mingle and speak to Dr. Marchese, as well as fellow anthro and Darwin fans. Refreshments and food will be served.

Hope to see you there!
