AnthroCurrents – September 5, 2014

A biweekly look at recent stories on anthropology and practicing anthropologists in the popular media




  • Neighborhood Watch hired an anthropologist to run an experiment they hoped would result in stronger neighborhoods—communities where people knew and interacted with their neighbors and felt a part of a larger group. This is what happened.
  • The Boston Globe examined the work of two anthropologists interested in age segregation across cultures. The article includes a map showing age segregation in the U.S. by county.
  • Esther Newton, anthropologist and photographer, published a memoir of her time at Cherry Grove in Fire Island in the 80s. Some of the pictures are included in this article by Lens.
