Wednesday Rojak #43

Only three features in this week’s rojak, but all quite worthwhile reads covering the Hobbit and the human shoulder, Cham identity and nationalism and community tourism.

  • Greg Laden reviews a recent article about the Flores Hobbit and the evolution of the shoulder. The original article’s a technical read, but Greg’s done a masterful job in covering the salient points for the less-informed audience (eg, me).
  • It’s the first time I’m, referencing myself in a rojak, but in case you missed it, there was a rather heated academic discussion about the fate of the Cham last week, stemming from an op-ed in the Phnom Post two weeks ago and a reply a week later. The comments seem to have quietened a bit, but the discussion continues, I suppose…
  • Continuing on from the post earlier today about community tourism development at Sambor Prei Kuk, Andy Brouwer shows us first hand how Unspoilt Sambor Prei Kuk really is.
