Krystal D’Costa selects interesting and notable ResearchBlogging.org posts in the social sciences, including anthropology, research, and philosophy. She blogs about anthropology, technology, and urban life at Anthropology in Practice.
This week in the social sciences:
- Melanie Tannenbaum explains the psychology behind why we’re likely to choose to pay more for tickets closer to an event at IONPsych.com.
- At The Thoughtful Animal, Jason Goldman asks readers to consider whether territoriality in humans is really that different from that of other animals.
- At the Wiley-Blackwell Life Science Blog, Allison Goldstein traces the genetic history of type-2 diabetes.
I’ll be back next Thursday with more selections from the social sciences!
