Some Guidelines for the Development of Curriculum for Applied Anthropology.
Clavner, Jerry
Applied anthropology seeks to integrate anthropological values and knowledge with a rational approach to policy decision-making. This paper discusses some of the barriers faced by those who care about anthropology and are concerned with making a viable space for the discipline in the college curriculum. Anthropology teachers need to further refine what they do and what they are actually capable of doing. Teachers are encouraged to be honest and realistic in their dealings with students in promoting, marketing, and advocating applied anthropology. The paper concludes by raising a series of questions concerning the discipline of applied anthropology and its role in the curriculum, including: Is the activity designed to change individuals' attitudes, values, norms, or beliefs? What are the possible manifest and latent consequences of change of values? And is the activity designed to change the structure of the cultural and social institutions? (DB)
