Recently, Richard and I found a chipping sparrow who had passed away on our backyard porch.One of the most crushing things about this event was to watch the bewildered female wait there as a sentinel by the side of her migratory partner, waiting silently during the fiery dawn hours for him to wake, to rouse, to be. Richard was able to take care of the male chipping sparrow, and he lay this gentle one to rest in power within the vernal forest and the veil. I wrote this elegy. Farewell tiny songbird, kindest neighbour. 🕊 . "Elegy . I stood by the sliding window, gasped at white— calm to that chipping sparrow. His spark, red rustling to hymns hallowed. As she, widowed newly, wrestled bereaved time wonderstruck, clueless, zapped by his formlessness— laying it all to bare, avalanched in, pebbles (nesting these grievous imprints) deckling death; caution, it spoke transfixed as morning grins laugh to the faintness of greys, smooth and serene in that stir-less moment. . Our eyes, these tiny engines, of beauty and mistrust magnificent, cursory and illusive, swept free. Breathless even by their own fault, the way words can puncture into the pitch of blank sunrises, dagger into ourselves as hushing sounds. Hushed, hushed. Our fears, they often look symmetrical, gliding forward, flush, and seasoned inside these sinew-ed bends of gobsmacked air! . Delight, yes, my friend—at this speckly beating feather. As if weightless, the deep-throat mystery of it all, of flight brief, cuts chance. So, wrung this sparrow’s song; its spirit, the thunder-thrush of magnetic migrations, scalpels the sacred, that thing in her which focuses all other words of love. Beating, beating to hymns. To him, to eyes—closed and god-bespoke." . #Victoria #PhD #PhDlife #anthropology #ritual #ceremony #mortuary #life #death #memory #love #birds #sparrow #poetry #poem #poetics #forest #power #peace #migration #hope #time #morning #light #sunrise #art #nature #respect #typewriter #song at Victoria, British Columbia

Though not all mouth fonts are treated equally. Some fonts such as “Times New Roman” (comparable to “Standard” American English”) have much more linguistic prestige than marginalized fonts like Comic Sans (comparable to African American Vernacular English). Cultural prejudices and social stratification are prevalent even in our fonts (dialects). . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #linguistics #linguistica #linguisticanthropology #sociology #sociolinguistics #anthropology #anthropologymemes #communications #collegememes #humanities #literature #languageandculture #font

One of the Seven Wonders of the World is in danger. An airport that would introduce noise, air and general pollution to one of Peru's "most archaeologically and historically complex places" is CURRENTLY being built outside of #MachuPicchu . The airport will introduce an additional 6 million visitors a year to a site and ecosystem already vulnerable to erosion and damage. This airport will not only impact the integrity of an incredibly unique site, but cause immense disruption to the local community of Chinchero. Machu Picchu remains an unparalleled and incredibly unique site to a culture devistated and destroyed by colonialism. This is 2019, and Machu Picchu (like the entirety of the Incan Empire) is threatened once again to be destroyed by colonialism. ~~~ I've posted a link to a petition to the President of Peru in my profile. Please--research for yourself and share information with others!! https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2019/02/airport-construction-threatens-unexplored-archaeological-sites-peru #peru #chinchero #machupicchu #savemachupicchu #culture #art #anthropology #science #archaeology #news #petition #history #science #colonialism #protect #conserve at Machu Picchu

Populaarne wariade öine kogunemiskoht Indoneesia Panga ees Yogyakarta kesklinnas. Foto pärineb 2012. aastast, kuid suurenenud politseireidide, pangaesise ümberstruktureerimise, aga ka üksikute viharünnakute tõttu on koha sotsiaalne loomus tänaseks praktiliselt kadunud. A popular waria nighttime gathering place in front of Bank Indonesia in the central Yogyakarta. The photo is taken in 2012, but due to increasing police raids, the re-structuring of the area, but also occasional hate crimes, the social nature of the area has practically disappeared. Read more from the recent article “Playground love: Sex work, pleasure, and self-affirmation in the urban nightlife of Indonesian waria” in Culture, Health & Sexuality, 21(2), 205-218.

I want to continue learning for the rest of my life. It’s the only way that I feel I’m moving forward. So far, I’ve been fortunate enough to learn from incredible people, but what escapes me is the time I want to take, to learn more, to sit and listen and simply communicate. Collaboration doesn’t come from only reading books. Put me ‘OUT THERE’ any day!!! 📷 : me. #medicalanthropology #health #medicine #culture #indigenous #indigenoushealth #healthresearch #anthropology #academia #collaboration #populationhealth #globalhealth #globalmedicine #aboriginal #aboriginalknowledge #aboriginalhealth #newzealand #australia #southamerica #canada #northamerica

Very early flight today...why did I ever think that would be a good idea?! Sorted my jewellery for this study trip earlier, because I'm not at my most discerning at 4 am. 😖 I opted for a mix of antique, vintage and modern jewellery items that work surprisingly well together: an antique gold ring with carnelian intaglio, vintage goldwashed chicken earrings from Morocco and some modern rosegold dainty rings with rosequartz and miniature diamonds, along with a modern string of pearls. I may not look quite awake currently, but I will look bejewelled these coming days of serious data collecting! ✈ ✈ ✈ ✈ #jewellery #jewelry #silver #research #TheLeveragedPhd #humpdayvibes #phd #phdlife #AcWri #WeltMuseumWien #Wien #Vienna #travel #MuseumVisit #CityBreak #ParisStyle #parisienne #jootd #pearls #AntiqueJewellery #100DaysOfDissertation #EthnicAdornment #EthnicJewelry #BijouxEthniques #JoyeriaEtnica #VintageJewelry #anthropology #ethnography

This is individual OpID 699. It is believed this individual may be a migrant who fled their home country in search of a better life in the U.S. Broken immigration policies are largely to blame for the growing humanitarian crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border. This picture depicts today's reality. Operation Identification (OpID) locates, identifies, and repatriates individuals found along the Texas U.S.-Mexico border. Since 2013, OpID has identified 31 individuals. I am extremely grateful to have the opportunity to volunteer at OpID and be part of the process that brings closure to families. Read about OpID in the @npr piece entitled "After Grim Deaths In The Borderlands, An Effort to Find Out Who Migrants Were". . . . .

Non-white cultures and their usage of the Earth have long been the donkey on which the tail of racist ideology has been pinned to. It’s time to change that by altering much larger things on the whole. ————————————————— #gender #genderidentity #lgbt #lgbtq #gay #transgender #trans #transpride #transmed #truscum #tucute #lgbtpride #theory #philosophy #linguistics #semiotics #signage #langaugeandgender #judithbutler #gendernihilism #deleuze #structuralism #poststructuralism #postmodernism #deconstruction #geography #anthropology #anticolonial #decolonization

Clovis copies will be on there way to me before too long. I will be opening up pre-orders soon, offering free shipping! Also, the digital copy will be available to all my Patreon backers or for sell on my website. Also, if you are in the Pacific North West, @EmeraldDistro will be carrying the book. So it should be in most local comic shops in the era. Also planing on doing a release party for it. There may be Pizza. #comics #comicbooks #indiecomics #comicart #eccc #rccc #c2e2 #science #palentology #anthropology #clovis #nature #Seattle

portón de acceso a antigua vivienda rural conocida localmente como 'castillo de Pizzio'. Era una casa de altos construida de ladrillos. Actualmente solo se observan los muros delimitando la entrada. Datación aproximada: construcción fines del siglo XIX-comienzos del siglo XX. En el lugar se ha erigido un adoratorio a San Pío de Pietrelcina.

Chontacuro life stages - Tena, Ecuador Dinner anyone? These beetle larvae are considered a delicacy in the Amazon region of Ecuador. Although usually much bigger, Chontacuro are often eaten raw, alive and still wiggling! They are also commonly served grilled or fried on skewers.

Mérida, Venezuela. 2014. • El día 21 de Mayo los habitantes de Pueblo Nuevo y caseríos cercanos bajan a la santa "negrita" de la capilla de pueblo arriba dinamizando la ritualidad de la dualidad espiritual San Isidro (arco) - Santa Rita (arca).

Did a little thrifting today. Trying to get out and explore my new town. Scored my 1st Anthropology/odille in the wild and its beautiful velvet, lace and silk. A Boden dress, a Gretty Zueger top that is stunning, a pair of Pliner booties and a pair of Pliner slides (the slides fit me...just saying) and some French Laundry leggings. I'm trying to source more selectively. I think I found my new honey hole. There was a lot more but I set myself a budget of $30 and kept it. And I bought a dog play yard for our chicks. Mork work to do now. #poshmark #poshmarkseller #poshlife #poshmarkambassador #posh #poshreseller #poshcloset #poshmarkcommunity #poshmentor #poshmarkfivestarambassadors #fastshipping #fastshipper #thrifting #thriftfinds #donaldjpliner #anthropology #odille #grettyzueger #frenchlaundry #boden #junebug

It's crazy to think that around this time last year I graduated from high school.👩🏻‍🎓 --- High school wasn't the best years of my life and I didn't take my grades seriously until the end of my junior year. During my senior year that's when I started taking more honors and AP classes, I started becoming more organized with my school work, I started prioritizing my school work as well, and I got more into wanting to increase my knowledge.🧠 I took an AP Bio class and I became more interested in the world around me and anything about science.👩🏻‍🔬 My grades and gpa eventually went up and I started becoming more confident in myself and in my school work.😌 --- Starting college last fall was a HUGE change. I changed my lazy ways QUICK and started to motivate myself more. Yes, I'm at a community college right now and I didn't like the idea at first but I'm so glad I did it. I'm in the Honors College at HCC and I've gotten inducted into two honor societies: Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) and National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS).😋 Now I'm not bragging but I do want to tell you guys that no matter if you do community college after high school or go straight to a university, you can succeed if you put your mind to it. Positive and happy mind = positive thoughts and habits.💪🏼 Work hard and dream big!! 🧠🔬🤙🏼

I know this could be a Mother’s Day post but in reality it’s every day it should be recognized , the matriarch is the meat of society and it should be known. I just know the higher that moms and kids are lifted the more a society can be WELL and in a patriarchal structure of expectations it’s just not functional for wellbeing when it’s out of balance. The nurturance of relationships matter and not just on the inter-webs. The eternal webs of life.

It might look like an ordinary cupboard, but it’s actually an amazing work by the legendary American sculptor Robert Gober! . It was such a great afternoon at the Grey Art Gallery at NYU discussing the exhibition MADAYIN: Eight Decades of Aboriginal Australian Bark Painting from Yirrkala with their director Lynn Gumpert, deputy director Michele Wong and their amazing team (including the legendary anthropologist Fred Myers). . While we were there, we got to see the stunning exhibition “Art after Stonewall, 1969-1989” which marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising. A moving and thoughtful show: everyone should go see it! . #greyartgallery #nyu #newyork #art #anthropology #museum #travel #curator #director #aboriginalart #indigenousart #contemporaryart #madayin #bukularrnggaymulka #yirrkala #yolngu #barkpainting #artafterstonewall #robertgober #australiaintheusa #klugeruhe #klugeruheaboriginalartcollection #uva #universityofvirginia @bukuartnow @hangingvalley @hoodmuseum @kadepj at Grey Art Gallery

The ancient Assyrian place of Ashurnasirpal II, one of the many delicate and prestigious forms of art and artifacts left in the world. The Assyrians, one of the oldest living ethnic groups on earth today, are one of the sects responsible for the reading, writing, and art of human civilization in Mesopotamia, the birthplace of modern human civilization. Later this year, I’ll have the honor under multiple governments and UNESCO to interview and conduct ethnography of the Assyrians in their homelands of Iraq and Syria. I will also report the vast decline in their civilization, as the Assyrians have faced continuous genocide against them since the fall of Nimrud, their ancient capital. - - - #art #assyria #arte #museum #unesco #natgeo #pictureoftheday #picoftheday #photooftheday #photos #natgeo #picture #met #culture #archaeology #anthropology #nyc #architecture #history #ancient #iraq #artwork #knowledge #science #photography at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York
