Have you ever wondered what life is like after you graduate with an anthropology degree? 

Come listen to one of our recent grads, Dr. Tareq Ramadan, during an AGSO sponsored Brown Bag on Thursday, December 6th from 12:00 - 1:00pm in the Anthropology Library (Old Main 1224). 

While most anthropologists would love nothing more than to dedicate their lives to researching their professional passions and teaching in their respective fields, long-term positions in either area are both competitive and limited. Fortunately, there are still a host of employment opportunities outside of conventional academic arenas, and one of these opportunities lies in consulting. Dr. Ramadan has spent considerable time engaging in consulting work as a numismatist, a cultural sensitivity training instructor, and, more recently, as a country conditions researcher. He has testified as an expert witness in Detroit’s Immigration Court on behalf of Iraqi respondents represented in the Hamama vs. Adducci deportation cases, which have received national attention. While challenging, the work is often incredibly rewarding, and for this talk he will highlighting the importance of cultural area studies and their consultative value. 

Free food and drinks will be provided, followed by the Gordon L. Grosscup Museum of Anthropology coffee hour!
