Spring has certainly started but its still cold and windy in New Haven. Our HRAF house at 755 Prospect is kept nice and toasty, with ample coffee,
so drop in and see us sometime if you are in the Northeast!
Aside from ramping up our
open-source teaching platform
, and gearing up for exciting
Spring and Summer projects
with eHRAF World Cultures and eHRAF Archaeology, we are having fun with some 'extracurricular' anthropological archiving projects---including digitizing and exhibiting Melvin Ember's (HRAF President 1987-2009) ethnographic photographs from Samoa, as well as psychological anthropologist Beatrice Blythe Whiting's photographs from 1950's Kenya.
We've also decided to give a name to our HRAF monthly newsletter (the one you are looking at right now). Get in touch with us to offer name suggestions or suggest featured research.
