Nicholas Nicastro -- Why I am Not a Cultural Anthropologist

A nice discussion on why one wouldn't want to be a cultural anthropologist these days. This is not to say there couldn't be value in cultural anthropology (and there are many who do excellent work, though they tend to cluster around a few universities) but there is limited value in most of what the discipline has become. Nicholas Nicastro does a nice job of summarizing some of the problems and arguments that many find in department laden with cultural anthropologists.
