Shameless Self-Promotion?

January 30, 2011

This is me in the Mosque of Ibn Tulun, Cairo, summer 2010.

In fact I hope that this is not shameless self promotion but it’s never clear.

My publisher strongly recommended that I start a blog or web page. First it was a letter from the promotion and marketing department, then some questions by my editor about how the current uprising related to issues in my book.

It struck home particularly because of a column I published recently in Anthropology News advocating blogs, web pages and other social media for those linguistic anthropologists who want to get seen by the media. The essay was subsequently published to the Society for Linguistic Anthropology blog.

In the face of all this sudden emphasis on the importance of social media, I decided it was high time to give it a try and see what happens.

I appreciate your joining me.
