Dear ASAP Members and Friends,
My name is Kelly McKowen, and I am a member of the Education Committee for the Association for the Anthropology of Policy (ASAP). The Education Committee has decided to update both ASAP’s collection of syllabi and its bibliography of essential readings. These resources are valuable research and teaching aids for current and prospective anthropologists of policy, and to ensure that they reflect that state-of-the-art, we need your help.
We are asking current you to contribute in two ways.
First, we are looking for new or revised syllabi. If you have any syllabi you feel could be of interest for other anthropologists of policy, please send them to us to make available online.
Second, in order to update our bibliography, we are asking you to submit 1-5 titles you feel are essential reading for anyone interested in the anthropology of policy’s main theoretical and methodological questions, concerns, and debates.
Both syllabi and literature suggestions can be e-mailed to me at [email protected].
We sincerely appreciate your help with making sure these resources are up to date, and we look forward to hearing from you.
PhD Candidate, Anthropology
ASAP at Denver AAA:
