Applied Anthropologists Release Report on Organizations Working with Latina Immigrants

AAA members and applied anthropologists Jane Henrici and Patricia Foxen will be participating in a report release forum held at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars on Friday, March 25 at 1:30pm. This forum focuses on issues facing both Latina immigrants and the organizations that work to help them.  Jane Henrici, Study Director at the Institute for Women’s Policy Research, is co-author of the report, Organizations Working with Latina Immigrants: Resources and Strategies for Change, to be released at the event; the report is based on a two-year research project that explores how nonprofit organizations and religious congregations seek to advance the rights and well-being of Latina immigrants in Atlanta, Phoenix, and Northern Virginia. Patricia Foxen, Associate Director of Research, National Council of La Raza, is chairing two sessions of presentations from researchers, organizational leaders, and advocates working closely with immigrant women and their families.

What “Lost” Cultures can Contribute to Management of Our Planet

If you are in the Washington, D.C. area, mark your calendar for the Managing the Plant Discussion Series on Wednesday, March 23rd.

AAA member, Susan Crate, will join Wade Davis and Thomas Lovejoy in a Managing the Planet Discussion Series at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.  The discussion will explore the challenges to our planet’s ‘ethnosphere’ and implications of global loss of intimate place-based knowledge systems, developed over millennia by people who have long inhabited, depended upon and steward specific ecosystems.

Dr. Crate, will discuss the Viliui Sakha, horse and cattle breeders in subartic Siberia, and one group on the front lines of climate changes. Her investigations show how climate change is affecting not only this people’s subsistence survival but also their cultural and spiritual orientation to their lands.
