AAA podcasts

2 April, 2008

I was delighted to discover today that the American Anthropology Association is broadcasting biweekly podcasts.  The second one reports on a letter that the AAA sent to the Thai government expressing concern about their newly relaunched “war on drugs” and extrajudicial executions during their previous drug war; a response to Stanton’s article entitled “Anthropologists agree on traditional marriage” for Focus on the Family; news on the AAA’s plans to revise the AAA Code of Ethics following the unanimous vote to accept all recommendations in the Ad Hoc Commission’s final report on the engagement of anthropology with US and security intelligence communities; and some stuff on the proposed US fiscal budget that frankly was gobbledygook to me, but anthro policy wonks will probably get it.

In other anthro community news, oh how I laughed at Savage MindsApril Fools Day joke.
