The Council for Museum Anthropology (CMA) of the American Anthropological Association has recently announced the establishment of an interactive weblog to support the work of the journal of the same name and the field.
Jason Jackson, Museum Anthropology editor, writes in the most recent issue (Nov. 2006) of Anthropology News:
Found online at http://museumanthropology.blogspot.com, the Museum Anthropology blog will be updated with news of, and from, the field. Among its functions, the blog will fill the role formerly performed by the journal's Exhibitions Listings section. As museums provide the editorial office with press released and other information regarding new exhibitions, these materials will, when appropriate, be posted to the blog. The blow will also provide a space with which news related to the journal may be easily conveyed to the CMA membership as well as the general readership. As with other new media, this blog will surely change as technology and user practices shift. To begin with, the comments function will be enabled and we will experiment with strategies to promote professional dialogue on the subjects featured on the site.
The Museum Anthropology blog appears on the Goldwater Library blog in the Blogroll to the left of this post, under the heading MUSEUMS & CULTURE.
