I’m presenting at a conference at IU this weekend. It’s not an anthropology conference, it’s a conference about language/rhetoric/teaching/etc. and my presentation’s about how to teach physical anthropology while acknowledging the racism and eugenics of the past and moving forward at the same time. One of the things I’m talking about is why we really do need skeletal reference collections. One point that I’m making is that we have skeleton casts that let us do general things, and I was going to do a slide about how a 3d object can engage people…
but then i realized
there’s no rules that say i can’t bring a 3d object with me
there’s no rules that say i can’t take a replica human skull with me on an airplane
Looks like it’s time for Mr. Bones’ Airplane Ride.
