Thanks to Benjamin Geer who sent me this link, following an interesting discussion we had about Bourdieu and the sociology of hipsters last week. It’s on the Savage Minds blog which I don’t read anywhere near as often as I should:
- Anthropologists as Scholarly Hipsters, Part I: What is a Hipster?
- Anthropologists as Scholarly Hipsters, Part II: Critiques from the Margins
- Anthropologists as Scholarly Hipsters, Part III: The Anthropological Brand
- The Anthropologist as Scholarly Hipster, Part IV: Authenticity and Privilege
I’m resisting the urge to blog about this any further because my paper about online writing is due to be submitted at the end of the week. I’m wondering if I should mention this situation, in which I’m resisting writing online because I need to focus on writing my paper about writing online, in the paper itself.
