PEOPLE and Why the World Needs Anthropologists

PEOPLE team members Gregor Cerinšek (IRI UL) and Dan Podjed (ZRC SAZU) were recently in Bucharest, where they presented the Why the World Neds Anthropologists symposium and the PEOPLE project to the Romanian audience. The goal of their short intervention, which was screened at the beginning of Why Romania Needs Anthropologists event, was to present the idea of satellite WWNA events, which will be spreading around the world in the future. The PEOPLE project was presented as an example of new opportunities for anthropologists and other social scientists being employed outside academia and “traditional” research institutions.
