Kimberly Christen Joins Editorial Advisory Board

Today is a good day to announce that Kimberly Christen has joined Museum Anthropology's Editorial Advisory Board. In addition to sharing good news for the journal, it is opportune as a chance to note that Kim launched her own webside and blog called Long Road yesterday. Kim is an assistant professor in the Department of Comparative Ethnic Studies at Washington State University. She collaborates in ethnographic and new media projects with Aboriginal communities in Australia and has a range of interests relevant to Museum Anthropology. Her review of the Ara Irititja project appeared in Museum Anthropology 29(1), and she is the author of a forthcoming paper examining the work of the Nyinkka Nyunyu Art and Culture Centre in Tennant Creek, Northern Territory. I am looking forward to continuing to draw upon Kim's help with the journal and to seeing where her new site goes. It is already a great resource for learning about her outstanding projects. Among my favorites is the remarkable Digital Dynamics Across Cultures project.
