  1. Hello there,

    I am a retired anthropologist now living in Kits. I am thinning out my library and have about a hundred scholarly books here looking for a good home. The subject range is pretty wide, but there’s a bit of a focus on popular culture. If anyone has an interest in them they could e-mail me. Free, but all or nothing: no cherry picking.

    Thanks

    • Hi Doreen! Thanks! I will pass this along to the grad students.

    • Hello Dr. Indra,

      I am very interested in your books as I am beginning my MA at UBC in the Fall. My proposed research project will look at the securitization of refugee flows in Canada. While I was crafting my prospectus and building a literature review Catherine Kingfisher lent me your edited volume “Engendering Forced Migration”… so I am particularly interested in books from your collection! As a new master’s student I am also looking to build a collection that covers a wide spectrum of topics. In other words, your books will be well read. The only problem is that I am not moving from Alberta to Vancouver until August. I have a friend or two that live in Vancouver that I may be able to cajole into holding onto boxes of books for me until then, but I would have to see. In any case, I’ll be able to work something out I am sure.

      Thanks,

      Daniel Manson

  2. Hello,

    I’m an incoming PhD student in the Integrated Studies in Land & Food Systems Program. I’ll be attending the AAA Meeting in Chicago this year and wanted to see if any Anthro grads were planning on attending, and if so, were interested in sharing a room to cut down on expenses. Please contact me at aheckelman@wsu.edu. Thank you!

    Best,
    Amber Heckelman
