Editor’s Selections: Literacy, Witchcraft, and Teeth

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 on ResearchBlogging.org:

  • One of the challenges of getting an education in pre-Industrial England was the distance to the educational facility. Tim DeChant explores the relationship between population density and the rise of literacy on Per Square Mile in Great Britain during 1530 and 1850.
  • Women and witchcraft have long been linked together. Franco Bejarano of Culture Potion traces the introduction of female magic to the Norwegian pantheon to the goddess Freyja, and his discussion demonstrates the ways in which witchcraft has been framed as feminine in Norwegian lore.
  • At Bones Don’t Lie, Katy Meyers makes a very good case for going to the dentist: mortality. The archaeological record reveals a link between oral health and susceptibility to other infections, but as Meyers notes, the contextual analysis of the find is lacking, so there is likely more to this story than we’re being told. (For now, though, you should still continue to brush twice a day and follow your dentist’s orders.)

I’ll be back next week with more from anthropology, philosophy, and research.

    Superb blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Thanks!

    But, midi in set to -1 [in bi-directional midibridge with fluidsynth event log] is an incorrect readout because I do have several USB MIDI devices connected (Axiom 25 and Trigger Finger). The pulldown menu for MIDI In devices is grayed out and it gives me no options for some reason. Clicking rescan devices’ does not help. That is just in IE8. In FireFox and Chrome however “bi-directional midibridge with fluidsynth” works perfectly as soon as I start it. I see my MIDI In devices listed and I can choose them and they work well.
