Anthropologists Comment on Disaster Relief in Haiti

Yesterday’s Baltimore Sun featured the article “Towson Professor to Leave for Haiti to Identify US Remains,” profiling forensic anthropologist Dana Kollmann, whose previous work includes investigations of Baltimore County crime scenes and mass graves in the former Yugoslavia. Kollmann has traveled to Haiti to identify the remains of American earthquake victims there as a member of a Disaster Mortuary Operational Response Team (DMORT).

Readers interested in anthropological perspectives on disaster relief in Haiti can also read Mark Schuller‘s recent CounterPunch commentary “Uncertain Ground” or visit theĀ  ABA’s “Focus on Haiti” webpage.
