13 April 2011: A Salon with Dr Siddiqur (Appollo) Rahman
Please note the change in date and location!
The April meeting of WAPA will take place on April 13 at 7:00 PM at the home of Gretchen Schafft in Silver Spring, MD (Metro directions below). We call such meetings a salon to indicate that it is more informal and participative. Our guest for the evening will be Siddiqur (Appollo) Rahman, an anthropologist from Bangladesh who received his doctorate in 2006 from American University. He is now an associate professor at a university in Dhaka and a part-time consultant with international agencies and non-profits. This will be an excellent chance to continue the discussion of using anthropologists from outside or from the countries themselves. We will have a free-floating discussion with no lecture, but with a few introductory remarks. Refreshments will be served. An RSVP is not required, and contributions to the table are welcome but not necessary.

Dr. Siddiqur (Appollo) Rahman divides his time between teaching and doing consulting work for various international firms and non-profits. Dr Rahman is a young, vibrant anthropologist with a wide range of interests. His main interests are the environment, human services, and education. He has recently started his own consulting firm. He will be leading a discussion of a topic raised in our last WAPA meeting: when is it appropriate to use anthropologists from the country being studied and when are foreign anthropologists a good choice?
