Hi all,

You are cordially invited to attend a special two-talk series called 
Contested Ethics: Anthropology, Social Science, and War on November 18 
and November 20, 2014. 

The series consists of two talks presenting contrasting viewpoints on 
the relationship between anthropological/social science research and 
war, particularly regarding the issue of research ethics. It would be 
great to have lots of peace activists to ask critical questions and give
 your point of view!

The first talk is by Montgomery McFate of the U.S. Naval War College:

What: "Anthropology in Warzones," a talk by Montgomery McFate

When: Tuesday, November 18, 4:30 to 6:00pm

The second talk is by Paul Joseph of Tufts University:

the Experience of Human Terrain Teams in Iraq and Afghanistan," a talk 
by Paul Joseph
