  • Magnificent put up, very informative. I'm wondering why the other specialists of this sector don't understand this. You should proceed your writing. I'm confident, you have a great readers' base already!|What's Taking place i'm new to this, I stumbled upon this I have found It absolutely helpful and it has aided me out loads. I'm hoping to contribute & assist other customers like its aided me. Great job.

  • To the editors,

    I think everyone listed here is great. In fact two, Lindenbaum and Susser, are on my dissertation committee. My concern is there are no people of color involved in the editorial process. Why? Knowing the deep commitment my committee members and many other folks involved have to diversity and raising up the voices of marginalized people, I'm confused as to how an all white editorial board could fly under the radar? I would hope the topic has at least been raised among you.

    I think making anthropology accessible to a wider audience is absolutely critical and fully support the mission of Anthropology Now. I encourage the editorial board to consider in future discussions how to recruit younger and more diverse contributors to the process and decision making.

    With utmost respect,

    Jose N. Vasquez, Doctoral Candidate, Anthropology, The Graduate Center/CUNY
