Each blog post has a comment section at the bottom of the entry (if there are no comments it will say “no comments”).  This is a an easy way for us all to continue the conversation started in these podcasts.  You do not need to create an account to post a comment and I will email the session or speaker if the comment is directed to them to ensure they see the comment.

CHAIRS: BENNETT, Linda (U Memphis) and WHITEFORD, Linda (U S Florida)

The Engaged University: What Does It Mean for Applied Anthropology? A Consortium of Practicing and Applied Anthropology Programs (COPAA)- organized panel session, panelists address the question, What would an “engaged university” look like, and how would one become one? Engagement – be it global or regional – bridges the void between the university and its surroundings. “Engagement implies strenuous, thoughtful, argumentative interaction with the non-university world in at least four spheres: setting universities’ aims, purposes, and priorities; relating teaching and learning to the wider world; back and forth dialogue between researchers and practitioners; and taking on wider responsibilities as neighbours and citizens.” How are the universities represented by the panelists becoming engaged and what is the place of anthropology in that vision? lbennett@memphis.edu, lindaw@cas.usf.edu (F-66)

PANELISTS: CHRISMAN, Noel (U Wash), HYLAND, Stan (U Memphis), GREENBAUM, Susan (U S Florida), KOZAITIS, Kathryn (Georgia State U), SHACKEL, Paul (U Maryland), THU, Kendall (N Illinois U),  and VASQUEZ, Miguel (N Arizona U)
