I’ve just read on Savage Minds about the rebirth of the University of Chicago’s anthropology journal Exchange. Exchange is a student-run journal not unlike Text, Practice, Performance from the Américo Paredes Center for Cultural Studies at the University of Texas at Austin (For those of you who are not critical readers, that’s a shameless plug for the TPP journal as I was fortunate enough to serve on its editorial board while I was at Texas).
At any rate, I understand that repeated reincarnation has been the hallmark of the Exchange‘s fifty-odd year history (it even ran briefly in the 1960s under the title Anthropology Tomorrow…gotta love that)…Let’s hope this on-line version sticks.
In this new issue of Exchange:
The Semiotics of ‘Straight Thuggin By Laurence Ralph
