I’m super excited to share this new and exciting project with you all! Anthropology is about to level up!
“Peeps Magazine is an independent magazine that delivers stories from around the world written by anthropologists immersed in foreign cultures (here and abroad) to bring new perspectives and experiences to your door.” (Check out their Kickstarter campaign)
When I first started ‘The Rockstar Anthropologist’ my main goal was to find ways to increase public engagement and awareness of anthropology and science in the public sphere. This magazine totally aligns with what I hope happens more and more in the field of anthropology.
“We’ve worked with applied anthropologists and photographers in the corporate world, and we realized that they were doing interesting research that needed to be shared with more than academics and corporate executives”, says award winning communication and magazine designer, Greg Salmela.
“We knew that we were not the only passionate readers looking for stories rich in lived context. So we started Peeps, a forum for people interested in people, bringing insights from the human sciences to people interested in an understanding of the world based on cultural context rather than events.”
The first issue, “The Modern Protagonist”, promises compelling stories that include of hip hop culture in Serbia, labor in the digital age, and the loser generation in China (the daosi) written by anthropologists and human scientists. If that’s not enough, these amazing narratives will be featured along side captivating visuals and powerful illustrations.
I can’t tell you enough how excited I am for this publication! Be sure to check out their website, and there is still time to support their kickstarter campaign! They made an amazing video that you should definitely watch!
