Dear Nontheist Planners,
By way of comparison and re further brainstorming about "sales" planning of "Godless for God's Sake" re Kindle and paper versions:
- The Anthropology of Sex and Gender, Anth 344, upper level seminar
- I'm glad to say.
ley/index.html & http://www.re ed.edu/reed_magazine/september 2015/articles/features/confere nces/conferences4.html
And MIT Prof of Anthro Graham Jones is a Reed College alum, as is MIT Prof Heather Paxson a Haverford (and Stanford) alumna ... all potentially great folks to connect with re asking students to buy NHE ... All could be helpful re networking for my new actual-virtual Harbin ethnography. What parallels might we find/generate re "Godless ... "?
Again, my Naked Harbin Ethnography book comes into conversation with Tom Boellstorff's "Coming of Age in SL." If faculty at universities (in any country, in English) whose classes are reading CoAiSL decide to read Naked Harbin Ethnography alongside it, add it to their required books' syllabi, there's potentially/possibly 10-30 books of Naked Harbin Ethnography per class sold. Here's a list of courses - http://scott-macleod.blogspot.
com/2015/07/syzygium-harbin- hot-springs-book.html - from MIT, Cornell, UC Berkeley and Brown from last autumn that read "Coming of Age in SL."
And while my actual-virtual Harbin ethnographic book touches a bit on sex and gender issues, it touches much more on the virtual and the effects of the information, and online, as ethnographic place and field site, so it wouldn't really fit into this course on the "The Anthropology of Sex and Gender" (which is currently au courant in the field of anthropology), but would rather best touch on courses about theorizing virtual reality, etc., and the practice of online ethnographic field work.
In what ways is / could Godless for God's Sake be read in a Haverford, Swarthmore, Earlham or Guilford or atheist universities' course, for example, and in relation to what books that already might be being read these days?
Giving a talk about Naked Harbin Ethnography next Friday in the UC Berkeley Anthropology department - http://bit.ly/HarbinBook - as well.
Any chance, David, and other GfGS authors, you could begin to give talks about it again?
Blue rock thrush: [NTF-planning] Kindle version of "Godless for God's Sake," Experiences last autumn with publishing "Naked Harbin Ethnography" to Kindle, Created a Kindle version book in the Academic Press at World University and School (as an imprint) for my actual-virtual Harbin Hot Springs' ethnography - http//bit.ly/HarbinBook (and https://twitter.com/HarbinBook), How can the Kindle version be accessioned in online Quaker libraries in all countries, and their main and official languages?, Wonder, further, whether NtFs, with "Godless for God's Sake" on the Kindle, could identify a nascent Artificial Intelligence strategy, and particularly re pricing and sales?
So what would a "sales plan" look like for "Godless ... " on the Kindle, on paper? (... and, by comparison, for "Naked Harbin Ethnography," as well as the Academic Press at World University and School, on both paper and digital media/platforms? The Academic Press at WUaS is planned on WUaS's upcoming for-profit wing, which legal papers are going in now ... The Academic Press at WUaS is also planned in all 7,099 living languages with machine translation).
I'm hoping to think about this a bit and share further ideas. Thoughts ... ?
NtFriendly cheers, Scott
