      > series may address service learning programs, local internships and
      > research, or the ethics of "doing anthropology at home." Articles
      > in the second series may examine the growth of new
      > interdisciplinary programs and initiatives; multi-degree, masters
      > and applied programs; limitations or innovations within existing
      > programs; or funding concerns. Proposals for comparative pieces on
      > anthropology education in the US and other countries and on other
      > topics related to the two central themes are also welcome.
      >
      > Additional Opportunities
      > AN also encourages proposals related to this general theme for

        > Dear Colleagues,
        >
        > Anthropology News seeks contributions for two spring 2009 series
        > that will explore how ethnographic work is produced through diverse
        > media. We encourage proposals for In Focus commentaries, Teaching

        > Multisensory Anthropology across Media
        > More than just ways of thinking and being, cultures are also fields
        > of sensation, experience and sentiment. Indeed fieldwork remains the
        > sine qua non of ethnographic understanding precisely in so far as
        > both cultural transmission and cultural understanding depend on
        > experiential engagement. Recognizing this, many contemporary
        > anthropologists seek to explore the variety of media�including
        > video, music, photography, digital ethnography and creative writing�
        > through which such multisensory experiences and knowledges can be
        > communicated. Drawing from diverse modes of creative expression,
        > from traditional forms of ethnographic writing to work that makes
        > use of performance or new technologies, submissions should focus on
        > how media can be harnessed to ethnographically convey different
        > kinds of information.
        >
        > Visual Ethics
        > As access to digital media increases, discussions of �visual ethics��
        > ethical considerations regarding the collection and dissemination of
        > visual data�become ever-more incumbent on anthropologists using this
        > data. This conversation is framed by the varying, sometimes
        > conflicting needs and interests of those who produce and consume
        > visual data, including research communities and anthropologists
        > across all subfields. This series seeks to explore the following
        > issues: (1) negotiating representational authority; (2) control in
        > the circulation of images; (3) displaying images in different
        > contexts, including textbooks, conferences and film festivals; (4)
        > relations with and responsibilities toward research subjects and
        > communities; (5) balancing rights to privacy and knowledge
        > circulation; and (6) the collection and dissemination of visual
        > materials within the context of globally expanding use of and access
        > to digital media technologies.
