My professor just referred me to the H Net, and it's a pretty neat concept I thought I'd share: http://www.h-net.org/

It's a listserv of scholars with a certain area of interest; you can ask questions, announce research, conferences, and jobs. There are several lists directly pertaining to anthropology and plenty that could be of interest to the group.
The Happy Doctor!

BOOKS!

Okay fellow Anthro Enthusiasts- it is winter break for me and I need some mental stimulation. I'm a senior of Anthro and Classics at the University of South Florida and lean towards archaeology and cultural the most. I already have Patterns of Culture and The Chrysanthemum and the Sword (Benedict) as some reading material, but any other suggestions? What was your favorite ethnography or anthropological work? I'd love to force my anthropological brain to work a bit over this 4 week break, so any suggestions would be most helpful. Thanks so much!
