> Subject: AN Seeks Proposals on Anthropological Ethics
> Dear Anthropology News Contributing Editor,
> Anthropology News seeks contributions for our September 2009 issue
> on anthropological ethics at a key moment in the AAA Code of Ethics
> revision process. Please spread the word about this opportunity
> among your section membership. Participants should email a 300-word
> proposal and 50-100 word author bio to AN editor Dinah Winnick (dwinnick@...
> ) by May 25. Selected authors will be asked to submit commentaries
> of 1000-1400 words or shorter pieces for other article types, such
> as Teaching Strategies and Field Notes articles.
> AAA�s ethics code revision has involved a diverse array of
> stakeholders. We now have an opportunity to engage in a discipline-
> wide discussion on this vital issue, which affects all people
> involved in anthropological work, in all areas of the discipline.
> The below prompts are meant to inspire and we welcome additional
> topics related to this general theme.
> What can and should a code of ethics do?
> How do different anthropological communities discursively engage
> with ethical dilemmas?
> How should an anthropologist manage multiple, potentially competing,
> sets of ethics in interdisciplinary work?
> What is the purpose of a code that offers guiding principles rather
> than enforceable standards?
> How do codes of ethics function differently for students, individual
> faculty or practitioners, or large organizations?
> Is there a difference between a code of ethics and a code of
> professional practice or responsibility?
> What ethical dilemmas have you encountered that were not addressed
> in the AAA code, or in other ethics codes?
> The full call for proposals can be found at www.aaanet.org/issues/anthronews/CFP-Anthro-Ethics.cfm
> . Proposals must be received by May 25. Please contact me if you
> have any questions.
