The Halcyon Days have left us here in North Dakotaland, and we seem to have returned to the cold, dark, budget-cutastic wintertime. That’s ok, though, because I think we all have lots of work to do this semester, this year, and forever into the future. Nothing like the idea of infinite work – stretching out endlessly in all directions – to keep you warm in the winter.
Before we get down to doing work, you should head over to The Digital Press at the University of North Dakota’s website and download a copy of Eric Burin’s Picking the President: Understanding the Electoral College. Or if you don’t like FREE, you can get it from Amazon for just $8.
On to a little gaggle of quick hits and varia:
- ASOR’s statement on the immigration ban has been signed also by the AIA, SAA, and ASCSA.
- Some nice notice of Punk Archaeology and the North Dakota Man Camp Project from the folks at the Trowel Tales.
- Critical Perspectives on the Practice of Digital Archaeology at Harvard (feat. the best Powerpoint slide ever).
- More bad news on Greek debt.
- Hypothetical archaeology?
- Archiving the protests.
- Archaeology of a rock festival.
- From Headshops to Whole Foods.
- What I’m reading: Thomas Davis, Shifting Sands: The Rise and Fall of Biblical Archaeology. Oxford 2004.
- What I’m listening to: Priests, Nothing Feels Natural; Ty Segall, Ty Segall.
