Jason Baird Jackson
Associate Professor of Folklore,
Jason Baird Jackson is an ethnographer whose work bridges the fields of folklore studies, cultural anthropology, linguistic anthropology, and ethnomusicology. He is the editor of the open-access scholarly journal Museum Anthropology Review, published by the Indiana University Libraries as part of the IUScholarWorks Journals project. Jackson launched the journal after becoming dissatisfied with publisher policies while serving as editor of Museum Anthropology, published by the American Anthropological Association and Wiley-Blackwell. He was part of a group that recently published an article entitled "Anthropology of/in Circulation: The Future of Open Access and Scholarly Societies," which appeared in Cultural Anthropology and is now freely available.
