Tuberculosis: more anthropologists wanted

If tuberculosis (TB) is so often described as the quintessential social disease, why aren’t more researchers in the social sciences and humanities studying this global problem?

 

 

 

A good article on ‘uncontacted tribes’

 Savage Minds: Notes and Queries in Anthropology —

Over at the BBC’s “Future” website, science journalist Rachel Nuwer has a 2,000 word piece up entitled Anthropology: The sad truth about ‘uncontacted tribes’. The piece focuses on Latin America, but is refreshing because it manages to avoid the usual clichés about ‘stone age innocents’. “Today’s so-called uncontacted people all have a history of contact, whether from past exploitation or simply seeing a plane flying overhead,” Nuwer writes. “It is almost always fear that motivates such hostilities and keeps isolated groups from making contact. In past centuries and even decades, isolated tribes were often murdered and enslaved by outsiders.”

Journalist Ceyda Karan (@ceydak) targeted by pro-AKP media and political trolls #CeydaKaranYalnizDegildir

Ms. Karan has been a particular target since Gezi Park Protests. AKP circles used to like her a lot but as she gradually became critical of the government, increasing symbolic violence she had to endure. In the new wave of (obscenity included) intimidation, another female columnist Amberin Zaman was the first target (her column here). Then came the flood of insults and threats to Ms. Karan…  A journalist from Yeni Şafak, a notoriously pro-AKP daily, agitated AKP circles by claiming that Karan labelled AKP voters as “idiots”. As can be seen in this video, Karan does not make such a statement, but Yeni Şafak guy was quick to provoke…….

Mahsun Korkmaz premier commandant PKK

Mahsum Korkmaz est depuis longtemps un héros pour des millions de Kurdes. Pas seulement pour  les sympathisants apocus (pro PKK). J’ai même rencontré des responsables  du PDK (le parti de Barzani), peu suspects de sympathie pour le PKK, qui ne cachaient pas leur admiration pour ses guérillas. Évidemment, le premier commandant du PKK, tué en 1986 lors d’ un clash avec l’armée turque dans les Monts Gabbar est vénéré par ses sympathisants. Et il est devenu  un modèle à suivre pour tous ceux qui rejoignent la montagne.

How Photojournalists Change War Zones 

This month Slate featured clips from the latest installment of Brooklyn Brewery’s War Correspondents series—a talk dedicated to Chris Hondros, a war photographer who was killed in Misrata, Libya in 2011. The series showed the pivotal role of photojournalists and reporters in conflict zones, and the unique dangers they face. Following the death of photographer James Foley, we’ve collected the full series below.
