  • Why Open Access is Important (2013-03-12 00:00:00 +1300)

    Here are some reasons why Cultural Anthropology’s move to Open Access is so important, in no particular order.

  • Where do tenured and tenure-track faculty in Canadian Ph.D. programs get their degrees? (2010-01-04 00:00:00 +1300)

    I wanted to find out where Canadian and non-Canadian Ph.Ds where getting hired, which departments in Canada produce the largest number of graduates who successfully attain tenured or tenure-track jobs at Canadian social-cultural-linguistic an- thropology (SCL) programs, and where non-Canadian graduates and current tenure-track SCL faculty tend to get their Ph.Ds. The result is that compared to Groarke and Fenske’s finding that about 70% of tenured and tenure-track philosophy positions in Canada go to graduates of foreign institutions, the fig- ure in social-cultural and linguistic anthropology (SCL) stands at about 52%. I go over the results in more depth below, and end with a brief speculation about why conditions may be different in SCL.
