Please distribute widely....
The Committee on Refugees and Immigrants (CORI), a section of the Society
for Urban and Transnational Anthropology (SUNTA) of the American
Anthropological Association is in the process of welcoming new and old
members to get involved in the organization.
Here is a short blurb from CORI's mission statement...
CORI focuses on contemporary migration, both voluntary and forced, and the
ways in which this movement challenges assumptions about national borders,
human and worker rights, the nature of global economic development, and the
basic structure and coherence of our own societies. CORI provides a forum
for anthropologists to consider the fullest range of issues and concerns
related to displaced persons, and to address these systematically through
research, public education, and advocacy.
CORI activities in the past have included panel organization for the AAA and
SfAA meetings and an annual publication of a peer-reviewed volume of
Selected Papers under rotating editorship.
If you are interested in being added to an expanding email list of
interested individuals, please email Jason Pribilsky at pribiljc at whitman.edu
Also, there will be an informal CORI business meeting held in conjunction
with a Migration-issues roundtable at the upcoming Society for Applied
Anthropology meeting in Tampa, FL. Ideas for revamping CORI and its mission
will be discussed.
