On Wednesday, the Columbia University Department of Anthropology hosted a seminar led by Dr. Kriti Kapila about the anthropological questions surrounding the new age of Indian digitalization.
On October 10, Barnard/Columbia archaeologists and members of the Picuris Pueblo came together to discuss archaeological research through the lens of collaboration with Native communities.

It’s 2am. You’re at a party in EC. You’re sweaty, you’re sticky, and the room won’t stop spinning. You consider lying down on the floor and never getting up again. But then, you hear those signature opening bars, followed by that pterodactyl-like sound of your friends screeching – it’s that song. It’s your song. It’s the song. The […]
The bizarre story of a Times reporter who tracked down another man with the same name comes to an end. (NY Times) Is Sarkozy on his way out? We report, the French decide. (Associated Press) A roundup of yesterday’s Coachella action. Yeah, that’s still going on. And yes, this blatantly has nothing to do with […]
A few days ago the History Department emailed about a new class, “Occupy the Field.” That’s “a field-based course about Occupy Wall Street and the Occupy Movement more broadly,” which, you will recall, began last semester. The Anthropology Department is responsible. Apparently, the class will be split between seminar and field work at OWS. Accordingly, the […]
We, oppressed Humanities students, have discovered, through our weeks of crazed paper-writing, that Microsoft Word doesn’t know anything about anything.

This week, we’ll celebrate the people who teach us things by reducing them to […]

Among the approximately 800 signatories are 14 Columbia faculty members, including: Anthro professor […]
Does anyone actually know what anthropology is? What does Evo love more: nationalization of oil or speaking at Columbia? Should GS deans be chosen in the same way as GS students–far too late? Did you know that, like, East 116th is TOTALLY less gentrified than, like, Columbia? I think she actually saw a poor person! […]
March is almost here and the theses have begun their looming. Blythe Sheldon forwarded us the following email from an anonymous anthopology student. While the fetishization of childhood books is never a great idea, they’ve still got a clever idea. in other news, i’m naming my thesis. so that my away messages will sound better: […]
