      * PANEL: HERDING REINDEER, begins 28 Nov 2001, Washington DC, USA

      Panel on Turkish and mongolian reindeer herders, "The
      South-Siberian/Mongolian Reindeer Herding Complex: Endangered Lands,
      Languages, and Livelihoods in Comparative Perspective."

      An excellent, interdisciplinary panel of young researchers, all of whom
      have done extensive fieldwork and/or applied work in south Siberia and
      Mongolia will participate.

      The panel includes the following people:

      -- Brian Donahoe (PhD Candidate in Ecological Anthropology at Indiana
      University; Project Anthropologist for the Altai-Sayan Language and
      Ethnography Project; panel organizer and chair):

      PROPERTY RIGHTS AND MAINTENANCE OF LANGUAGE AND LIFESTYLE AMONG THE
      TOZHU-TYVA AND TOFA REINDEER HERDERS;

      -- David Harrison (PhD-Linguistics, Yale; currently a post-doc at
      Swarthmore; Director of the Altai-Sayan Language and Ethnography Project):

      SOUTH SIBERIAN REINDEER HERDING: PERSPECTIVES FROM ETHNOECOLOGY,
      ECOLOGICAL LINGUISTICS AND THE
      INDIGENOUS COMMUNITY;

      -- Susie Crate (PhD Candidate in Ecology at UNC-Chapel Hill):
      THE LEGACY OF THE VILYUI

      -- Daniel Plumley (Ecologist; Director of the TOTEM Peoples Preservation
      Project, a special project of Cultural Survival, Inc.):

      REQUIEM OR RECOVERY - THE XXIst -CENTURY FATE OF THE REINDEER CULTURES OF

      -- Alan Wheeler (PhD student in Anthropology at Cambridge University
      working with Dr. Caroline Humphrey and Dr. Piers Vitebsky):

      INALIENABLES, IDENTITY AND REINVENTING REINDEER HERDING IN NORTHERN
      MONGOLIA.

      The meetings are being held in the

      Marriott Wardman Park Hotel
      2660 Woodley Road,

      just across the street from the Woodley Park Metro Station.

      Technically, you're supposed to be registered to attend, but no one ever
      checks, so if you want to see my panel, just waltz on in like you own the
      place, then ask someone who has a program which room my panel session is
      in. Unfortunately, the panel is scheduled for the first slot on the first
      day of the meetings (Wednesday, 28 Nov., from 12:00 - 1:45), so attendance
      will probably be pretty sparse. Hope to see at least a few of you there.
