Krystal D'Costa Krystal D’Costa selects notable ResearchBlogging.org posts in the social sciences, covering anthropology, research, and philosophy. She blogs about anthropology, technology, and urban life at Anthropology in Practice. Follow her on Twitter @krystaldcosta.

Happy New Year! Bloggers have started with a bang—there was much to choose from:

  • At Genealogy of Religion, Cris Campbell probes how myths might help condition the collective, which is a question with no easy answer in sight. But Campbell treats readers to a neat mythology map showing thematic and geographic similarities.
  • If you’ve ever injured your shoulder, then you have a sense for how important the joint really is. At Lawn Chair Anthropology, Zachary Cofran traces the evolution of the shoulder from A. africanus to present day.
  • Over at Inkfish, Elizabeth Preston questions why we are a risk-averse species by pointing out that some of our closest genetic relatives will take the bigger reward even in the face of a bigger risk.
  • Did you make a New Year’s resolution? Did you break it already? Dr. Stu discusses whether these types of commitments are designed to fail.
  • And finally, at A Hippo on Campus, Andrew Watt attacks an old stereotype with neuroscience, and the hope that it will help girls face math with more confidence.

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