I am an applied anthropologist researching public policy issues in at the University of Alaska Anchorage's Institute of Social and Economic Research. My research involves economy and culture, resource management, education, and workforce development. I teach courses on "Culture and Globalization" and "Science, Technology, and Culture" at the University of Alaska Anchorage.
If you are around on Wednesday of the 2008 SfAA meetings, please consider coming to this session, an open forum organized on behalf of the Public Policy committee, to participate and help support the cause of education in public policy engagement.
(W-41) WEDNESDAY 12:00-1:30
Open Forum on Uses of Language in Public Policy
CHAIR: HEYMAN, Josiah (U Texas-El Paso)
The focus will be the ways that formal, policy oriented language articulates with communities, scholars, and other language communities in the policy process (that is, it is not a forum on the policy of language, but the language of policy).
dear dra Marie,
I am a researcher and co-coordinator of a research group on health of the black and maroon in Brazil, which belongs to a public university, and I'm very interested to be visiting your university, and meet other researchers and teachers who have studies on black people or african-Americans.
I had the opportunity to do internship at Elon University in North Carolina for a month in 2008, where he had contact with the health anthropology, and in 2011 we are trying to verify the possibility of visiting universities and researchers Americans who study the issue of inequities and inequalities ethnic / racial and the problem of access to the health of the black population, which is one of the great problems we have in Brazil too.
The idea is to try to schedule a visit in May or June 2011, and we have availability we get up to a week, or maybe a little more, and so we could be exchanging experience and can show what we have studied in Brazil with communities black in rural areas. We have much interest yet to receive them or their students themselves through scientific exchange, and we are still making agreements, joint research projects, articles and everything that is academically viable, if it is in their interest.
