Do you follow any sociocultural, linguistic, or medical anthropology blogs by other PoC? I know tumblr can be an awesome place to build a thought dump/resource landfill for things you're passionate about. I'm an anthro student and I'd really like to find more budding Black/PoC anthropologists to bond with.

anthrocentric answered:

You know, I don’t actually know. I follow a lot of academia blogs, but there’s only like, afro-dominicano and scienceyoucanlove that I know for sure and love their blogs dearly. SO, let’s get this post around and try to create a list. I’ll put more fields in it, but if we can get at least the anthro community, that’d be great. I know there’s more fields than listed below, so if you want to be a part of it and your field isn’t listed (ex; film), you can go ahead and comment anyways!

IF YOU ARE A POC WHO RUNS OR BLOGS A LOT OF THESE FOLLOWING SUBJECTS, YOU SHOULD CONTACT ME AND/OR WRITE YOUR NAME BELOW WITH YOUR URL AND ACADEMIC INTERESTS. ALSO IF YOU HAPPEN TO BE A POC IN THE LGBTQIA+ COMMUNITY YOU SHOULD ALSO MENTION THAT (IF YOU WANT TO).

"People do not give it credence that a young girl could leave home and go off in the wintertime to avenge her father’s blood. But it did happen. I was just 14 years of age when a coward by the name of Tom Chaney shot my father down and robbed him of his life and his horse and two California gold pieces that he carried in his trouser band."

If you haven’t seen the new True Grit, go find it immediately and watch it.

Argentinean sculptor Adrián Villar Rojas creates enormous sculptural works that seem like remnants of a science fiction movie set, or bizarre moments from a surreal dream.

The awesome piece you see here is entitled My Family Dead (2009). Here a life-size blue whale, created by the artist, lies beached in the woods outside Ushuaia, Argentina. The stranded cetacean is pockmarked with tree stumps, which leaves the viewer wondering if it’s being slowly claimed by the forest or perhaps it’s a native resident. Beautiful and utterly awesome.

Lisa Adams | on Tumblr (Australia)

Lisa Adams creates images that are often unsettling, sometimes melancholy or by turns uplifting, but always affecting and richly atmospheric. The scale on which she works affords her involved and tightly realised paintings an intimacy that echoes the personal nature of her subject matter. Indeed, she explores grand emotions on a humble scale so that the very act of looking at her paintings is a revelatory and ultimately rewarding experience. Adam’s emblematic paintings hold the promise of divested secrets and play with constructions of language through the incorporation of witty titles. (src.

Justyna Neryng (Poland/UK) - Childhood Lost

Justyna Neryng is a fine art photographer from Poland, living and working in Brighton, whose photography has flourished into a substantial body of portraiture. Four years ago Justyna begun to collaborate with her daughter Nell on an on-going autobiographical project Childhood Lost, exploring the nature of portraiture and memory: “I am producing a series of portraits that evoke, characters that populate this world we know as childhood. A court of character’s from myths and dreams. The images are aesthetically inspired by portraiture from the Golden Age of Dutch painting. By drawing on paintings as inspiration I am hoping to give a timeless feel to the final images. Key to the project is the painstaking styling and prop building, which I am using to evoke these different persona played out by my daughter.”
