Krystal D'Costa 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 on ResearchBlogging.org:

  • Ingrid Pillar of Language on the Move discusses how English can be both empowering and limiting through the experiences of Australian immigrants.
  • With great power comes great responsibility—and temptation. Michael Kraus of Psych Your Mind delves into the relationship between power and corruption.
  • The author of This Is Serious Monkey Business reports that orangutans are not picky eaters. Why is this important? Well, it could help preservation efforts as these primates lose their natural habitat and find themselves in captive/semi-captive environments.
  • Franco Bejarano of Culture Potion explores the use of magical clothing in folklore, tracing similarities in stories through different geographic locations.

I’ll be back next week with more from the social sciences.
