Have you started pursuing your Master’s or PhD in physical anthro? I am so stagnant and so scared of getting back on the academic track. Hope you get something oversees that would be amazing.
I have my Masters in Human Osteology from the UK and have been networking left and right and taking every opportunity available. Sadly there are no jobs in physanth so I’ve been working the barely-above-minimum-wage CRM archaeology jobs. I just feel like I’ve been stumbling through it all and just need to get into a phd program to feel grounded if I can’t actually find any work. Just so tired of job hunting and filling out applications.

I have two short-term project jobs that might start up soon and just got a call from a museum regarding a volunteer application I placed several months ago. I’m getting all of the calls, but nothing that’ll pay the bills. I’m seeing jobs popping up in physical anthropology in other parts of the country and I’m applying to them all, but for the time being I’m screwed. Also, unemployment is fucking confusing ugh.
Biomedical Ephemera’s Cat Surgery and Wedding Celebration Giveaway!
ALRIGHT! Let’s do this. I’ve been meaning to do a giveaway for a really long time, so I’ve accumulated WAY too much stuff. Why now? Because I’m getting married in, like, three weeks, and I want to share some of the celebration with you guys! Yay!
**Save Zarkoth, Destroyer of Carpets!**
Much more importantly, though, I’m also doing this because my kitty needs his tooth removed, and all of our upcoming expenses mean that we can’t get this done on our own. The full story is at the donation website, and I want to get the word out that an awesome kitty could use a buck or two if you have it.
You do not have to donate to be entered into the giveaway. I really just want to get the word out so that those who can help know about it.
With that out of the way, this is the first of three lots - the other two will be posted at the end of the month, after this is concluded.
- ONE “Dr. Miles’ New Joke Book” from 1936 Full of terrible jokes and testimonials. Advertisement for Dr. Miles’ Anti-Pain Pills.
- Choice of TWO: Inflatable Frog, Inflatable Bird, Inflatable Turtle, fossil Deinonychus life-sized wall wrap.
- ONE Inflatable Perch Including internal organs illustrated on the side, with diagrams and teaching tools.
- ONE Kidney-On-A-Stick Reverse is a regular kidney model, without internal components shown.
- Choice of ONE: Inflatable Marie Curie OR Benjamin Franklin. Perfect for pranking or terrifying your science-inclined friends! Both heads have trivia about their subjects on the back.
- THREE “Wild Wraps” Bush babies and black panthers. Perfect for organizing cords, hanging from your ponytail, or guarding your treasures!
- Choice of ONE:
100 Flowers and How They Got Their Names by Diana Wells OR Wicked Bugs by Amy Stewart. Both are fascinating, have bizarre, curious, and fun trivia and facts about their subjects, and I’ve used both as resources for the blog!
Again, you do not have to donate OR follow me to be entered, but if you like any of this stuff, you’ll probably like my blog!

Feminist Orphan Black: The Countdown
Over the course of the next ten days, I will be publishing one drawing and mini-essay per day exploring different feminist themes in the BBC America tv series Orphan Black as a countdown to the premier of season two on April 19th. This series will include season one spoilers, so if you haven’t seen Orphan Black yet, consider this your official kick in the pants! (It’s only ten 45-minute-long episodes, you can do it in under a day if you make a marathon of it.) So with that little intro, let’s get right to it!
10. Women as Individuals
One of the core themes of Orphan Black is individuality. Although a huge proportion of the characters in Orphan Black are genetically identical clones —all played by the incredibly talented Tatiana Maslany — they are written and portrayed as completely different people. This is nearly opposite from how mainstream media has historically treated women characters: as (slightly) physically different versions of the same basic ‘woman’ character, whose primary purpose is usually to support the leading male protagonist as either a romantic interest or as a catalyst for his personal growth (or both!). From a media representation standpoint, it is rare to see multiple female characters filling out a cast, let alone multiple well-developed, unique women characters who are placed solidly at the center of their own drama. The clones’ assertions of individuality in the face of a world that lumps them together as an undifferentiated group sounds a lot like the feminist tenant that the category of “women” is expansive rather than reductive. In other words, although the normative patriarchal culture insists on seeing women — especially media depictions of women — as interchangeable and homogenous, women are actually complex individuals composed of many different facets of identity, all shaped by their unique circumstances, experiences, and choices. Women are not reducible to their gender. Orphan Black totally gets that.
OMG I love this. Looking forward to the next 9 posts!
Apparently it’s very difficult to find bee-themed ties that don’t make one look like a clown, so instead I got this nice tie pin.
