Back in the saddle!

Howdy and Happy New Year! What a year 2010 was, both personally and professionally, probably for you too. I continue to be grateful to my readers for staying tuned to the BANDIT blog, doing fantastic research, and engaging in important discussions about who we are as anthropologists and how we can shape the future of our discipline.

Please send my your updates - especially your publications, grants, and fieldwork. Remember my mantra: self-promotion isn't a crime! To that end, I'm happy to say that a paper I recently co-authored with Dr. Betsy Abrams, also at the University of Illinois at Chicago, has been accepted for publication and will appear in an American Anthropologist near you sometime later this year. We have another paper and book chapter in review and all available fingers are crossed. There's also a very exciting project in the works with two brilliant colleagues - hope to be able to say more soon. 2011 will bring some new developments to the blog, including some guest posts by fellow BANDITs, as well as more coverage on work-life balance issues, as yours truly will soon join the ranks of academic parents. In all respects, it's an exciting time to look forward. Let's get after it, people!
