ASA06: Cosmopolitanism and Anthropology
Open discussion on ethics in anthropology, Keele Hall Old Library, 9.30-10.30pm, Monday 10 April
Chairs: Ian Harper and Alberto Corsin-Jiminez
Have you had problems in getting approval for your research projects from your university's ethical committees?
Are local and national regulations making the practice of ethnography all but impossible?
Have you concerns with the ESRC's recent prescription of ethical guidelines and their suggested constitution of ethical review committees?
What can anthropology do to prove to the sciences the ethical robustness of ethnography?
How should the ASA respond to these varied concerns?
