In February 2007 the Practicing Anthropology Working Group (PAWG) launched a “Profiles in Practice” column in Anthropology News that highlighted anthropologists working outside of academia. PAWG soon transformed into the more permanent AAA Committee of Practicing, Applied and Public Interest Anthropology (CoPAPIA), which reimagined its Anthropology News column under the new title “Anthropology Works” in September 2008.
CoPAPIA is now building upon past Profiles in Practice columns with an online interview series geared towards students interested in anthropology but uncertain about career paths that await them after graduation. The series is hosted by Ruth Sando, owner of Sando and Associates, who is a practicing anthropologist and former board member of the Washington Association of Professional Anthropologists. This week she interviews Cheryl Levine, a social science analyst at the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
