2013 SFAA Roundtable Discussion Chaired by: PAVEY, Steve (One Horizon Institute) and NUÑEZ-JANES, Mariela (U of North Texas):
This roundtable discussion will focus on a dialogue about the role of applied anthropologists and applied anthropology in documenting the experiences of undocumented youth. Participants will reflect on the ways in which applied anthropologists are and can work as allies to the undocumented youth movement and will discuss the challenges they encounter in the process. Two applied anthropologists, a practitioner and a university professor, will discuss their work with undocumented youth. Undocumented youth activists and undergraduate students who participated in a service learning-course will talk about the opportunities and challenges of working with applied anthropologists or as practitioners assisting policy driven programs. Some participants will join via Skype.
