Welcome to the blog for Michelle Merrill’s Anthropology 19G class, Surviving the Future: The (Re)Emergence of Sustainable Cultures for Spring 2011. Please go to WordPress.com and create a login and password for yourself so you can more easily join the discussion (Anthr19G students only, please; no need to set up your own blog). Once you are logged on, please reply with a comment to this post as a way to introduce yourself to the class.

Note: don’t worry if your first post doesn’t appear right away – it is on hold until I get a chance to approve it. If you choose a login/user name that isn’t going to be easy for me to identify from the roll sheet, please add your name to your first post or send me an email so I can approve your comments and give you credit for your work.

To learn more about the class, don’t forget to look at the syllabus. We are meeting every other week this term, so in places where the instructions say “weekly,” you should interpret that as “before each class meeting.”  I am updating the topics to what we discussed in class on February 14th.  Our next class meeting is February 28th.  By then, you should have posted something in your topic, and completed the first assigned reading to discuss with your book group.  Email me if you need a reminder about what you signed up to do.

Also, there were a few students who were in class and wanted to add, but did not get an add code from me at the end of class (whoops).  Come by my office hours this week or email me and I can give you one (for this “late start” class, you can use an add code to add up until Feb. 25th).

Thanks, and see you on the 28th!

-Michelle
