Chilcott, John H., Ed.
Eight articles which explore areas of interest to teachers of anthropology are presented. Three lead articles investigate the application of anthropological concepts and methods to educational institutions, formal and nonformal, outside the United States. In the first paper, demographic socialization as a field of anthropological inquiry is discussed and recommendations for the development of research techniques are presented. The second paper is a case study which provides information on ethnic stereotyping in Nigerian public schools. The third paper presents a discussion of the impact of formal schools on peasant communities in the Peruvian highlands. The fourth, fifth, and sixth papers investigate possibilities for employment of anthropologists in field work, public school teaching, and educational planning. The seventh paper describes the experiences of an anthropologist in the public schools of Dallas, Texas, and relates various capacities in which an anthropologist can serve a public school system. The final article discusses contract ethnography and accountability in anthropological fieldwork. Professional news, material on teaching anthropology at the college level, and a bibliography of recent anthropological publications are included. (Author/DB)
