Last Sunday in Montreal, I was part of the panel Digital Anthropology: Projects and Projections organized by Mike and Kim Fortun from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. This post will highlight the groundbreaking projects created by this diverse group of anthropologists. There is a synergy in what is being done, and I want to gather it together in one place online. I’m going to provide a list of people and projects first, and then provide a bit of commentary on the panel itself. Finally, I’ll go over each project, and the accompanying talk, in depth.

Automated selection is an efficient and under-utilised alternative, but up until now it has been difficult to see how an automated approach could clearly identify the most popular and widely relevant websites.
