Laugh Out Loud

LibraryI just had a laugh-out-loud moment in the library, which is nice because it’s Veteran’s Day and I’m a veteran, and everyone always thinks I should be somber, but sometimes I don’t want to be. This was the moment, this was the laugh:

“If sexual relations in the field is the great taboo subject of anthropology, our own religious histories is the great taboo of religious studies.”

Robert A. Orsi, Between Heaven and Earth

I read this, laughed, and then posed two questions: one, what are scholars doing in the anthropology department? Two, am I in the wrong field?
