46: Anthro Club Minutes

3 03 2008

by Heather Balcom

Spring semester meetings are set for alternate Thursdays at 11am.

Our first event is “Anthropology Day,” Tuesday, February 5th, 2008. The featured speaker is Mark Dawson, discussing ethics in the anthropological study of war. The reception runs from 1pm to 3pm in PB 390, followed by his presentation from 4pm-5:30pm in East Engineering 191. As February 5th is the first Tuesday of the month, Anthropology Social Night follows the presentation from 7-10pm at M-n- Ed’s Pizza, on First and Bullard; come, eat pizza with our distinguished lecturer. This presentation is relevant to a variety of fields; please promote it to anthropologists and related non-anthropological disciplines (philosophy, sociology, psychology, etc.) alike.

We have tentative plans to help run the Discovery Center’s “Baby Fest” on April 12th. More information to come. Also in the works this semester: a second speaker, anthropology tote bags, and lots of attempts at publicizing anthropology, including presentations to high school students. Alecia, our new president, is brimming with ideas, and your suggestions for speakers, tote bag designs, or other events are greatly appreciated.
