Brain Pickings

One of the things we’re hoping AMS :: ATX will do is alert you to valuable resources outside of the American Studies world. There’s no better place to start than with Brain Pickings, a “discovery engine for interestingness, culling and curating cross-disciplinary curiosity-quenchers, and separating the signal from the noise to bring you things you didn’t know you were interested in until you are.”

Curated primarily by Maria Popova, a critic who also writes for Wired UK and The Atlantic, Brain Pickings offers posts on “art, design, science, technology, philosophy, history, politics, psychology, sociology, ecology, anthropology, you-name-itology.”

We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
