I am taking part in an e-seminar this week and next week over at the OAC. The seminar is based upon a working paper (here's the link) that I wrote about about my research on the politics of tourism and development in Baja California Sur. It's a piece that combines a historical approach with anthropological discussions of value. It is basically a background and foundation for how I am going to approach my upcoming fieldwork (I am working to get into the field asap). And, since all of this is very much a work in progress, I am hoping to hear what some of you out there in the internets have to say. So, stop by and check it out if you have time. Even better, leave a comment or two. Don't be shy! The discussion lasts for a while, so there's time to peruse the paper then post a question, comment, etc. It's all pretty wide open. If you haven't joined the OAC, now is as good a time as any!
PS: Thanks to Keith Hart, Justin Shaffner, and everyone else at OAC for this opportunity!
