BS in Anthropology with minors in Archaeology and Classics. Looking for Geographic Information Systems (GIS) courses to take this summer (if you have any info. please let me know). Looking to pursue studies in archaeology with a focus in the rise of complex civilizations.

Greetings, all. I see the group's been down a while, and I hope I'm not flogging a dead horse by joining it.

I just got my BA in World Literature in the winter of 2010, and am now applying to graduate programs in Folklore. I hope to one day be the old professor that everyone goes to visit even if they don't have a class with him anymore. I have no aspirations to administration, only to my doctorate.

Academic manqué here: got my Ph.D. in philosophy and spent several years chasing temporary positions around the country and doing adjunct teaching before giving up.

How politics destroys it

I don't have absolutely hard info on the first story, but it seems pretty strong.Maybe 5 years back I answered an FB post by a favorite niece who's a huge PP fan.  It was a polite and moderate answer, not directly opposed to her view but s leaning, but... niece exploded, saying I obviously hated all women and children.  My response was that we're family, you know me better than that, and we shouldn't let politics destroy such bonds.  She took down the post, thinking (I believed), wow, that got…See More
