Editor's Selections 7 Comments
By Krystal D'Costa

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.

A couple notable discussions of a historical nature this week:

  • At Smells Like Science, Dan Bailey has a fascinating account of the preservation of The Vasa, a warship that sat at the bottom of Stockholm harbor for three centuries. Bailey recounts how it was finally salvaged, restored, and now serves as a museum.
  • At Bones Don’t Lie, Katy Meyers shares her experiences using historical texts in medical research, highlighting how context can change how we perceive the experience of illness.

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

    My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on various websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

    I do agree with all the ideas you have presented in your post. They are very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are too short for starters. Could you please extend them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.
