Call for papers on anthropology and welfare issues

Sun, 13 Mar 1994 10:56:31 -0500

Please send me your papers or abstract of a paper for a special issue of
PRACTICING ANTHROPOLOGY on the subject of anthro and welfare. I am interested
in papers by anthro's whose work has centered on financial assistance, food
stamps, housing assistance...that is, what one may view as sustenance programs,
either in the US or elsewhere (If this issue had cross-national material, this
would be excellent). I am interested in how anthro research has been used (or
not used) by those people who construct social policy (from the legislatures to
agency directors). The paper should be 10-12 pages (double spaced), written in
a scholary but informal style. See previous issues of PA for a guide. Please
let me know if you are interested. Reach me by e-mail, or call 203-465-5227. Thanks.
