Proceedings of the 1960 Annual Spring Meeting

Excerpt

The annual Spring meeting for 1960 of the American Ethnological Society was held at Stanford, California, on Friday and Saturday, April 22 and 23. The first day was devoted to invited student papers. The program included papers by graduate students from the University of California, Los Angeles, the University of Southern California, Stanford University, the University of California, Berkeley, and the University of Oregon.

The theme for the papers of the second day was "Undergraduate Teaching of Cultural and Social Anthropology." The program was arranged in cooperation with other professional societies in anthropology. Under the general chairmanship of Dr. David Mandelbaum a series of meetings are being held during 1960 for discussion of the teaching of anthropology. Other organizations which are exploring the problems and opportunities in the teaching of their respective fields include the Society for American Archaeology, the Society for Applied Anthropology, and the American Association of Physical Anthropologists.

A list of the papers on teaching which were presented at our meeting will be found on page ix. Ordinarily these papers would be printed in this volume as the Proceedings for 1960. However, it is the plan of Dr. Mandelbaum and his committee to publish the papers from the various meetings as a Resource Book for the Teaching of Anthropology. So as to avoid duplication the Society is therefore presenting in this volume an account of the proceedings of the Stanford meeting and an "accompanying paper," entitled Windigo Psychosis, by Morton I. Teicher. (This paper was accepted and prepared for publication under the editorship of the undersigned.) When the Resource Book appears, the Board of Directors of the Society will take steps to see that members of AES receive copies.
