Anthropologists Are the Hipsters of Academia

Posted on March 6, 2011 by


Having lived in LA, specifically Silver Lake, and also being an Anthropology grad student, here are some intersecting characteristics between Hipsters and Anthropologists.

I don’t usually like using adjectives or naming a list of characteristics, but in funner discourses, like this particular entry, I’ll go bucwild with them.

So here they are:

Privileged, creative, probably freaky in the bed, always there to experience something novel and trippy to our senses, listen to the “weirdest” music,  namely white people with a few weird people of color on occasion, harmless, though kind of nagging when around.
