Come Together: A Guide for Group Blogs

Originalmente publicado en WordPress.com News:

Many of the blogs and websites we discover are fertile ground for a mix of voices and perspectives, and for some of you, blogging is a collaborative effort. On WordPress.com, you’ll stumble upon pockets of micro-communities on every subject, from the author-illustrators writing about illustration and design at Illustration Age to the political science PhD students discussing current events at The Smoke-Filled Room.

These sites, and many more, take advantage of various features in the dashboard that make group blogging easier. Have a collaborative blog — or thinking of starting one? Here’s a checklist of settings and tools for your site:

Crisis in Higher Ed [USA], Part 1. Michael E. Harkin

This re-post looks at national politics and higher education in the US, although as we examine other countries’ situations (see other posts at cultura de papel) we can start seeing common patterns regarding the restructuring of universities and post-secondary education in general.  Harkin enumerates some of the major challenges that need to be addressed to prevent a significant deterioration (crisis) of higher education in the US.

Important Changes are Coming to the US Census — NPR

“Possible revisions to how the decennial census asks questions about race and ethnicity have raised concerns among some groups that any changes could reduce their population count and thus weaken their electoral clout.

The Census Bureau is considering numerous changes to the 2020 survey in an effort to improve the responses of minorities and more accurately classify Latino, Asian, Middle Eastern and multiracial populations.

Potential options include eliminating the “Hispanic origin” question and combining it with the race question, new queries for people of Middle Eastern or North African heritage, and spaces for Asians to list their country of descent. One likely outcome could be an end to the use of “Negro.””

American Diggers Goes International « American Anthropological Association

Action Needed As American Diggers Goes International « American Anthropological Association.

The American Anthropological Association is supporting the petition of our fellow Spanish archaeologists to stop the airing of “Un Tesoro Bajo Tus Pies”, through Discovery MAX: http://www.change.org/es/peticiones/discovery-max-que-se-retire-el-programa-un-tesoro-bajo-tus-pies

This television series is the translated version into Spanish of “American Diggers”, produced by Spike TV, and that the AAA, along with other professional organizations, strongly opposed to, back in March of this year, as it wrongly represents archaeology as a treasure-seeking adventure. Committed to the scientific stewardship of the past, the AAA has sent letters to the corporate and international management of Discovery Enterprises inviting them to follow up the example given by National Geographic Channel and to initiate a similar dialogue with professional associations and archaeologists to promote an educated depiction of archaeology. But above all, the AAA has expressed its deep concerns about the potential looting and subsequent illegal trade that Discovery Enterprises are promoting around the world by airing “American Diggers” internationally, through their affiliated sister networks. We invite you to support this initiative and increase the voices expressing that the content of “American Diggers” is contrary to the ethics of archaeological practice.
