Introducing the Ronin Institute Newsletter: Kitsune

Happy New Year to everyone out there.

In December, the Ronin Institute published the first issue of Kitsune, a newsletter that will come out six times a year and will keep you up to date on the happenings at the Institute and in the world of alternative scholarship more generally.

That first issue is now available on the website here. If you would like to receive it in your very own inbox, send an e-mail to us at kitsune@ronininstitute.org, and we’ll add you to the list. You might also add kitsune@ronininstitute.org to your address book, so that your newsletter does not wind up in your spam folder.

We’ve got a lot of exciting people on the rolls now, and some cool programs in the works. Keep an eye on Kitsune, and you can stay up to date on both.

Well, today, friends, I present the solution to your problem: Ask a Cool Anthropologist

This is a new feature from Cool Anthropologist and Ronin Institute Research Scholar Kristina Baines.
