      > 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?
