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.

Globalism

There's been a lot of talk about globalism lately, so I want to get people's opinions on whether it's a good thing or not (it's not necessary to read and respond to the following diatribe, a simple answer to this question would be appreciated).From my perspective, it's unequivocally a good thing that happens to have bad consequences for some people, but benefits the same people in some ways as well.  I understand that a lot of small, one-industry towns are dying, partially as a result of…See More
