Notable recently

The latest ASAP column for Anthropology News has just been published: “In the Loop and Off the Record” by Negar Razavi. It is a condensed version of last year’s ASAP graduate student paper prize.

Coming up

The next Instagram guest contributor will be Eric Cheng. If you miss the daily posts, you can still find the full set at @anthofpolicy. Note that we are always glad to add additional Instagram guest editors — basically an arrangement to do a series of six to eight photos and captions over about a two week period. If you are interested, please contact Georgia Hartman at: georgialhartm[email protected]

ASAP will have the following four invited sessions for the AAA meetings in Washington this fall:

(1) Medical Anthropology in the Trump Era, co-sponsored with the Society for Medical Anthropology (SMA)
(2) The Effects of Recent Changes in National and International Governments on Refugee Experiences in Host Countries, co-sponsored with the Society for Urban, National, and Transnational/Global Anthropology (SUNTA)
(3) Beyond Snowden: The Anthropology of Whistleblowing, co-sponsored with the Association for Political and Legal Anthropology (APLA)
(4) Intersections of Truth and Violence, also co-sponsored with APLA

More detail on these and our other sessions will be circulated on the this list, with additional material on Facebook, beginning about October 1.

ASAP’s work with SUNTA on refugees continues. A collection of about twenty essays on maintaining refuge is in final production for both web and print. Expected publication is October or November.

As always you can find us . . .
