research abstracts on video!

[cross-post from on Oct. 30, 2013] video abstracts. Teresa Figueroa Sanchez comments on her Anthropology of Work Review article about "California Strawberries" and R. Brian Ferguson talks about his work, "Blood of the Leviathan." The latter (originally published in American Ethnologist) is part of a collection "On Violence" in Open Anthropology. So, what can video abstracts do that the written word does not? These short takes let authors personally explain their work. As visual documents, they provide a way for non-specialists to quickly understand the central themes. Students might well find these clips fascinating in terms of making research projects "real," by showing how these anthropologists came to their projects and how anthropologists craft their research.
