During this winter break we thought we’d do something a little different and let readers decide what we posted — that is, we took a look at the site stats for our blog and thought it might be interesting to re-post our top hits.
This blog — one aspect of a larger research initiative devoted to rethinking how scholars talk about identity — has been live since late May, 2013 and, so far, there’s 923 posts in the system. So, starting with #1, we’ll work our way through the top hits on the site (re-posting them on Facebook and Twitter on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays), as a bit of a stroll down memory lane. Though each post was likely timely when it first hit the web — what was in the news that week? — our hope is that the larger, critical point being made in each has legs.
Given that we’re poised to enter a new phase of the Culture on the Edge blog — more news on that in the coming months — we thought that the end of 2016, and the start of 2017, was a good time to take a look back. And we’ll update this page, as we go, so our top hits are easy to find.
So see you back here Wednesday for #1. And we’ll see you early in 2017 for Phase 2 of Culture on the Edge’s blog.
