this week’s festival + awesome anthropology resources

Hey, here’s the festival lineup for this week. The theme is ‘Giving.’ I’ve also linked some resources sent to me by Lana Ruck, one of the participants from weeks prior. I hope to see you at the Instagram live #spreadlovenotcorona festival tomorrow night.

Lana Ruck’s anthropology thoughts on handedness, tools, and language: https://blogs.iu.edu/sciu/2016/12/06/hands-tools-and-words/ In this article, she explores the interconnections of our species’ propensity towards right handedness, using and making tools over time, and how language developed in our brain. It’s awesome and I hope you head over and read it!
