About

My name is Marie-Pierre Renaud. I am a graduate student of anthropology and a geek. I live in Quebec city. THAT SORT OF THING is a collection of my own thoughts on a variety of topics. In French and English.

You may also read my work on The Geek Anthropologist, a community blog where geek culture and its many areas of interest are analysed through the perspective of socio-cultural anthropology. There I write about definitions of geek identity, the representation of ethnic groups in science-fiction, or the fake geek girl debate, among other things.

I published sporadically on NOT YOUR USUAL FOLKLORE, where I examine the stereotypes about indigenous cultures, be they positive or negative, and present a collection of very short pieces on contemporary indigenous arts, musics, design, fashion, activism, decolonization attempts, and many more fascinating topics.
