Mead Film Fest: November 8-12, 2006

It's a ways off still, but worth putting on your calendar. The Margaret Mead film and video festival will be in New York City this year from November 8-12. It's the 30th anniversary of the festival, which always offers scientifically-minded travelers a great way to catch films about other cultures. In case you're unaware who Margaret Mead is, you can check out an online bio site. Most people know Mead from their college anthropology class and her book Coming of Age in Samoa. She remains a very controversial figure, as you can read about at this site, which discusses criticism of her by anthropologist Derek Freeman. And, of course, who can forget that the governor of Florida called her a "dirty old lady" for her views on decriminalizing marijuana.
