Media Anthropologist Newsletter. Volume 1, Number 2.
James, C. A., Ed.
The aim of media anthropologists is to provide the general public with entertaining, relevant anthropological background information through the public media. This quarterly newsletter disseminates information, promotes awareness of present physical and social issues, and offers a means of intercommunication on the topic of Media Anthropology. Typical issues discuss current matters of concern to media anthropologists; announce available and current films, periodicals, publications, seminars, and conferences; list audio-visual tools, manuals, and guides; and describe opportunities, ventures, and studies. Listings of multimedia materials, mostly annotated, contain complete bibliographic information. Also included are reviews of television media, and a readers' clearinghouse section. The lead article in this issue provides guidelines for disseminating anthropology through newspapers. Two TV programs -- "The Cave People of the Philippines" and "The American Indian Movement" (Today Show) -- are reviewed. The final article deals with discussions at the National Association of Education Educational Broadcasters Convention. Problems and political difficulties encountered by stations were presented. Broadcasters were made aware of the difficulties of media anthropology and offered suggestions for implementing the liason function advocated in the newsletter. Reader cooperation is requested on a number of specific ways for expanding the publication. (SJM)
