Call for expertise data – by Wednesday, 12th Nov

Colleagues – I apologize in advance if you are getting this request from multiple sources. I need to quickly assemble an expertise database to show key response organizations (like the UN Mission for Emergency Ebola Response) where anthropologists have worked / are working.

If you are an AAA member and your membership profile is up to date, terrific. If it is not up to date, we’d like you to update it anyway (go to, login and update).

However, this week is “special,” and in addition to updating your profile, I’d like to get something to UNMEER in a hurry. By close of business Wednesday, 12 November, could you please respond DIRECTLY TO ME, NOT the whole list, with the following information:

1. Last Name

2. First Name

3. Position Title

4. Organization (Department / Institution

5. City

6. State / Province

7. Country

8. E-mail address

9. Fieldwork location(s) and dates, especially Ebola-affected areas: City(ies) or Towns / County(ies) or Province(s) /Country(ies)

10. Content area specialty(ies)

11. Languages you speak with professional fluency

Thank you so much! And remember, NOT TO THE WHOLE LIST, but DIRECTLY to me.  I promise I will share the work in progress so others can add their expertise data later.
