Congratulations to Graduate student Paige Edmiston and her U Pitt colleague Alexandra Dantzer's for the online American Ethnologist publication of their ethical anthropology series, "Yours Sincerely, an Uncertain Anthropologis."  The opening line introduces the series: "  As two graduate students preparing to "enter the field," we increasingly find ourselves contemplating an important, yet uncomfortable question: How will we know if we are doing ethical anthropology? And who should we turn to if (and when) we feel unsure?"
