Dear Keith Hart, Carlo Cubero and I would like to open a page on the site for the upcoming EASA conference at Tallinn (July 29 -Aug 03, 2014) for the purpose of informing about the basic themes motivating the conference, its organization including the use of media 'labs' and several types of updates. I would like to know if this would be possible and how I might go about it -plus any suggestions you may have.
If positive- it might be best to start a new account ('EASA-2014'?) which would be removed after the conference.
I did my PhD research on a market very similar to the one you describe in your article about Ghana informal market. I used your study as a reference and to establish a comparison between them two. I have attached a letter with photos of this northeastern Brazilian market for your better comprehension.
That article was never translated into Portuguese. Therefore, I would ask you if you would give me your permission to publish my translation of your article. My study is part of a group research at the Federal University placed in the interior of Northeast of Brazil: www.gptrabalhoufcg and most members do not read in English. Thus, I thought translating your article to them would be a path towards a better understanding of our object of study.
Thank you so much Keith. I look forward to networking and learning here. I am a 61 year old History major with a minor in Anthropology. My fall classes begin Monday. I agree with your discernment of the coming role of Anthropology. Now to get this to our public schools...His In Service
Hallo Keith, its a pleasure to join this comunity, its a real pleasure to get your welcome note. I've just put some more info in my profile, now I'm going to surf here to get to know more about OAC. I'm investigating informal economy in Cape Verde in general, informal workers organizations in particular, but I'm especially interested in the people who chose to live from art, from creation..
Hi Keith, I am in fact in Paris, but I understand you are now in S. Africa! We now have a project with Federico Neiburg on "Modes of government and ordinary economic practices", which is thrilling. I am off to Brazil, where we'll discuss this. Would love to have a beer when you're around.
Thank you Professor Hart for the invitation. I may be able to contribute helpful information on the concurrent disappearance of
integrity in government science and constitutional limits on government
Society is deeply troubled. I want to help, but I know little about anthropology, sociology, or government.
The corruption I have witnessed in government science since starting research on the "Origin of the Solar System and its Elements" in 1960, strongly suggests George Orwell correctly forecast the current state of society in the futuristic novel he wrote in 1948 and entitled "1984"http://www.online-literature.com/orwell/1984/
My research mentor, the late Professor P. K. Kuroda, probably assigned me this project because he knew world leaders were frightened and responded irrationally to the powerful force of creation and destruction that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki on 6 Aug 1945 and 9 Aug 1945.
Keith, yes, it's been rather a long time. Since Ann Arbor, I've actually been in the UK and then in The Netherlands (where I ran the MA in Development Studies at the ISS). I'm now, after 25 years, back in the States, in the DC area. But, my son Reuben has just finished his MA in Visual Anthropology at Kent and is looking for PhD options. You may see him in the flesh before you see me!
