Subject: [ANTHRO-L] online discussion on anthropology association's
preliminary report on "Darkness in El Dorado"
The Chronicle of Higher Education is sponsoring an online
discussion this week on the latest controversy over "Darkness
in El Dorado: How Scientists and Journalists Devastated
the Amazon," a book published a year ago that charged a number
of prominent anthropologists with misconduct in their work
with the Yanomami tribe in the Amazon. The American
Anthropological Association appointed a panel to look into
the charges and a preliminary report by that panel -- rejecting
some of the book's charges while agreeing with others -- was
posted on the association's Web site last week. Now that report
is prompting more controversy, with some saying it was released
The Chronicle invites members of this list to read news coverage
of these developments and to join the online discussion at:
