Launching Facebook and Twitter

To ASAP members and friends:

We are very glad to announce the launch of our Facebook and Twitter presence. On both of them we are “anthofpolicy”. Please follow us!

Although we will use Facebook and Twitter for routine information about our activities, our main goal is to use these more interactive formats for active discussion of anthropology-of-policy issues. For this year, we will do so by picking bimonthly topics that seem promising or timely. We will have some postings on what we think are useful resources and pressing questions, but the main goal is to open up comments from all of you. We have chosen refugees as the first topic since we know we have had a high level of interest. Future topics are wide open. Feel free to make suggestions.

On either Facebook or Twitter, feel free to comment on the  current topic, on the overall process we are using, or on how to make that process more inclusive, useful, or interesting.

The official launch of our first topic will be on March 1. But we are already live on both Facebook and Twitter.

Best regards
