Today I found myself wandering through the ASA book fair- before they packed it up for the traditional grad student book riot- and ran across something a bit peculiar. Nestled between the welcoming booths belonging to Pearson, Sage, Harvard University Press, and so forth was a small table covered in jewelry and staffed by a woman whose wrinkled skin made her ancient wisdom almost palpable. On her table also rested a placard, lettered in the traditional ASA font and style, which read: “Navajo Jewlery.”
I think I speak for us all when I remark: huh?
As a side note: Is this sort of thing a regular feature at the meetings and I've just never noticed?
