Hi Sam,
Thanks for this info.  My schooling was so steeped in post mo that the  areas 
you mentioned below were marginalized.  I would like to help in  changing 
that, but I am not sure where to begin.  Is your website already  in operation?  
If so, please provide its address, so I can get a better  idea of what you are

Joe makes an important point  (see below).  He needs to be brought into the
loop of people who are  involved in the kind of work he is proposing.  While
limited in the  last few years, it has been going on since the 1960s, if
anyone can  remember that far back.  We now have folks involved in all sorts
of  anthropology.  Let me list the ways and let a thousand flowers  bloom!

public anthropology
action anthropology
participatory  action research anthropology
community service learning  anthropology
service anthropology
critical anthropology
activist  anthropology
advocacy anthropology
policy anthropology

If you are  interested in these areas, I am in the process of pulling
together some  information that will be on a Web site, part of the Society
for the  Anthropology of North America Web page for you to use.  If you want
to  be listed on this page, send me your information.  if you want  to
contribute to this effort let me know and send along texts,  bibliographies,
