Part of my online life includes editorial duties at ResearchBlogging.org, where I serve as the Social Sciences Editor. Each Thursday, I pick notable posts on research in anthropology, philosophy, social science, and research to share on the ResearchBlogging.org News site. To help highlight this writing, I also share my selections here on AiP.

This week on ResearchBlogging.org:

  • Is Columbus and his crew to blame for the rise of syphilis in the Old World? The debate continues at Spirochetes Unwound.
  • What’s working and what isn’t working in rural education in India? Aatish Bhatia at Empirical Zeal discusses the state of Indian rural education in 2011.

I’ll be back next week with more from anthropology, philosophy, and research.
