The AAA Committee on World Anthropologies (CWA) is launching an initiative to bring together course syllabi on topics relevant to the development of world anthropologies. Its objective is "to learn how our colleagues across the globe are providing students with learning experiences that get at 'other knowledges' produced by anthropologists rather than drawing only on perspectives from their own national positioning -- or from the Euro-American tradition". Collected syllabi will be made available to everybody so that we may initiate a worldwide exchange of ideas for teaching. IUAES members are encouraged to share their syllabi or distribute information on this initiative to their colleagues. See the letter from Florence E. Babb to the IUAES for details. ==> CWA letter to IUAES
