Video: Love/Hate Relationship with FACEBOOK

August 9, 2010

Charlene Shovic is Master’s student in Anthropology, and for her Linguistics class, she decided that creating a video would be MUCH more entertaining than writing a 20-page paper. And there might be a chance you would actually watch it. So here goes…Shovic attempts at showing you just how much is hidden in a little text when it comes to our love/hate relationship with FACEBOOK.

You can watch Charlene Shovic Video : Contradicting Facebook: A Discourse Analysis   here.

Marwa Rakha:Open Access E-Books

July 27, 2010

Marwa Rakha lunched and took a step to encourage online free publishing of digital books in Egypt and other parts of the world. She took this step due to the abusive publishers. Rakha’s website includes and hosts great numbers of digital books for free in English and Arabic as well as her own work…Interestingly, this is one way to celebrate open access e-books for the public.

On Writing Dissertations

June 14, 2010

In the below interesting interview, Alan Macfarlane discusses writing dissertations. He taught at the Department of Social Anthropology Cambridge University. As an anthropologist and historian he worked on different countries, such as England, Nepal, Japan and China. You can find more about him in his personal website.

Also check the post of Kerim at savage minds concerning his advice to post graduate students, who are working on writing their dissertations. I find writing around 500 hundred words works a day is a practical idea and this works well if you have the chance to follow it.
