The Anthropologist’s Guide to the Government Shutdown

  1. Health and Human Services is a department of the federal goverment. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Institutions of Health (NIH) are subdivisions (agencies) of the department.

  2. Then there are the military institutions of education that require civilians to teach such as TheUnited States Naval Academy where, for example four officers are to lead as many classes as possible in seven languages and Anthropology in the Languages and Cultures Department. While these officers are gifted individuals with knowledge og Arabic, Chinese and German, they are hardly able to meet the demands required og a department with around 35 civilian faculty members, myself, an anthropologist, included.So much for valuing education once again.
