Message from Louise Lamphere, University of New Mexico
I am currently writing a paper for Human Organization entitled
"The Convergence of Applied, Practicing and Public Anthropology in the 21st
Century." It will be published in HUMAN ORGANIZATION as part of a special
section of papers on "The Future Lies Ahead: Applied Anthropology in the
Century XXI." I am looking examples of research projects that are:
(1) collaborative (i.e. engage with members of the
communities/groups being studied to formulate a study, help carry it out
and feed back the results to participants),
(2) include some attempt to reach out to the public with
information/results about the project (e.g. through museum exhibits, public
presentations, videos, etc), and/or
(3) work toward changing or implementing public policy.
I am interested in examples from all four sub-fields, but would,
of course, like extensive examples from cultural/social anthropology. It is
easy to find collaborative projects among those who consider themselves
applied/practicing anthropologists. But I would like more examples of
projects by cultural anthropologists who would not ordinarily call
themselves applied or practicing anthropologists. If you are involved in
collaborative research, outreach efforts, or activities to implement or
change public policy in an area, please E-mail me with copies of articles,
research reports or web-sites or just a summary of what you are doing.

Thanks so much for your help.
