Bonjour,

L'AANTHQ tiendra un kiosque sur la profession d'anthropologue lors
d'une soirée carrière au Collège Notre-Dame, à Montréal, le 22 avril
prochain. La présence au kiosque est demandée de 18h30 à 20h45. Le but
de cette soirée est de faire découvrir votre parcours professionnel,
les études en anthropologie, les différentes opportunités d'emploi
dans ce domaine ainsi que de répondre aux questionnements des
étudiants du secondaire. La soirée est organisée par le projet SEUR
(Sensibilisation aux Études, à l'Université et à la Recherche) de
l'Université de Montréal.

Un membre du comité exécutif de l'AANTHQ sera présent, mais nous
aimerions que d'autres anthropologues l'accompagnent afin de refléter
la variété des débouchés professionnels possibles.

Si vous souhaitez rencontrer les étudiants dans le cadre de cette
soirée, merci de nous faire part de votre intérêt en nous contactant à
secretariat@aanthq.qc.ca avant le 19 avril 2015.

Nous vous remercions à l'avance!

L'exécutif de l'AANTHQ

[Version française en bas]

WANTED – CASCA WOMEN'S NETWORK COMMUNICATIONS OFFICER

After four years as CASCA Women's Network Communications Officer,
Martha Radice is leaving the role and we are looking for someone else
to take it on.

The Communications Officer's tasks and time commitments are:

- Running and maintaining the CASCA WN listserv (up to 1 hour a week)
– mainly moderating messages for relevance, occasionally adding or
deleting subscriptions;
- Keeping the CASCA WN webpages up to date (up to 5 hours a year,
working with CASCA webmaster);
- Preparing any documents for the CASCA WN business meeting at the
annual conference (up to 3 hours a year);
- Being a member of the CASCA WN coordinating committee, which means
keeping in touch with the WN coordinators and potentially contributing
to organization of the WN panel at the CASCA conference, adjudication
committees for prizes, etc. (time commitment varies; usually a little
flurry of activity around February-March if organizing the panel).

Skills/training required:
- Reasonable degree of computer literacy and 1-2 hours familiarization
training (with Martha) required to manage the listserv using Dalhousie
University's antiquated web-based interface;
- Good sense of organization (finding emails, keeping track of
documents, keeping track of due dates for things such as annual calls
for submission);
- Option to learn the web interface for editing CASCA web pages (with
the CASCA webmaster);
- Decent communication skills for liaising with WN coordinators, CASCA
conference organizers, etc.;
- Fluency in English and French preferred; if not, knowing a friendly
translator helps.

Handover date would be following the CASCA conference, in late
May/early June. Please contact Martha at martha.radice@dal.ca if you
are interested in taking up or finding out more about the role.

POSTE À COMBLER : RESPONSABLE DES COMMUNICATIONS POUR LE RÉSEAU DES
FEMMES DE LA CASCA

En poste depuis quatre ans, Martha Radice quitte maintenant ses
fonctions de responsable des communications pour le Réseau des femmes.
Nous sommes donc à la recherche d'une personne pour la remplacer.

Voici les tâches liées au poste de responsable des communications et
le temps évalué pour les effectuer :
- Administrer la liste de diffusion du Réseau des femmes à l'aide du
gestionnaire de liste (maximum d'une heure par semaine) : consiste
principalement à valider les messages en fonction de leur pertinence
et, occasionnellement, à ajouter ou à supprimer des abonnements;
- Mettre à jour la section du site Web concernant le Réseau des femmes
(maximum de cinq heures par année, en collaboration avec le webmestre
de la CASCA);
- Préparer la documentation pertinente pour la réunion de travail du
Réseau des femmes qui a lieu pendant le colloque annuel de la CASCA
(maximum de trois heures par année);
- Participer en tant que membre au comité de coordination du Réseau
des femmes, ce qui implique de communiquer avec les coordinatrices du
Réseau des femmes, de participer s'il y a lieu à l'organisation de la
table ronde du Réseau des femmes prévue à l'horaire du colloque de la
CASCA, de participer au comité de sélection des prix, etc. (Le temps
alloué à ces diverses tâches peut varier. Une participation à
l'organisation de la table ronde nécessitera de consacrer du temps aux
préparatifs qui ont lieu habituellement aux environs de février et
mars.)

Compétences et formations requises :
- Connaissances informatiques adéquates qui seront bonifiées par une
formation d'une heure ou deux (avec Martha) visant à vous familiariser
avec le gestionnaire de liste accessible par l'interface Web désuète
de l'Université Dalhousie;
- Bon sens de l'organisation (recherches de courriels, gestion des
documents, suivi des dates butoir importantes, entre autres celle de
l'appel de communications pour le colloque annuel);
- Possibilité d'apprendre à manier l'interface Web utilisée pour
mettre à jour les pages Web de la CASCA (en collaboration avec le
webmestre);
- Aptitudes à communiquer convenables pour assurer la communication
avec les coordinatrices du Réseau des femmes, le comité organisateur
du colloque, etc.;
- Maîtrise de l'anglais et du français si possible (dans le cas
contraire, avoir un traducteur à portée de main pourrait être utile).

Le mandat débuterait après la tenue du colloque de la CASCA, à la fin
du mois de mai ou au début du mois de juin. Pour en savoir plus ou
pour signaler votre intérêt, veuillez écrire à Martha à
martha.radice@dal.ca.

*ANTHROPOLOGY PUBLIC ALUMNI LECTURE*
*/Presented by the Anthropology Colloquium Series, University of Toronto/
*

*The Shape of Human Origins*

*Carol V. Ward*
Professor and Director of Anatomical Sciences
University of Missouri

*Thursday, April 16, 2015*
7:00-9:00pm, ES 1050
33 Willcocks Street, University of Toronto
Earth Sciences Centre, Reichman Family Lecture Hall
/Followed by Reception/

The transition to habitually terrestrial bipedal locomotion (i.e.,
walking upright) is a hallmark of early hominin evolution, and
continues to be a topic that captivates the scientific community and
public alike. To have an accurate understanding of how this transition
occurred, we need to understand the nature of the ancestral condition
from which hominins evolved. Although often ignored in favor of upper
and lower limb fossils, the torso has been a locus of morphological
change that reflects key adaptations to posture and locomotion, the
biology of early hominins, and the patterns of selection that shaped
them. New fossil evidence of the torso of Miocene apes and early
hominins challenges assumptions about the evolution of locomotor
adaptations in hominoids and the biology of early hominins. Combining
the implications of these new fossils with novel analyses of
previously known material provides new perspectives on the question of
hominin origins and early evolution.

Carol is a paleoanthropologist interested in the evolution of apes and
hominins. She is best known for description of new fossils of
Australopithecus anamensis, A. afarensis, and Proconsul nyanzae and
for research on postcranial morphology and locomotor adaptation in
Miocene and Plio-Pleistocene hominoids. She is co-director of the West
Turkana Paleo Project through the National Museums of Kenya, currently
working at the A. anamensis site of Kanapoi and other sites throughout
West Turkana. She is a Fellow of the American Association for the
Advancement of Science, and has won several teaching awards. Carol
Ward earned her BS in Anthropology and Zoology from the University of
Michigan in 1986 and her PhD in Functional Anatomy and Evolution from
the Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy at the Johns Hopkins School
of Medicine in 1991. She joined the faculty at University of Missouri
in 1991 in a joint appointment in the Departments of Anthropology and
Anatomy. In 2006 she moved full time to the Department of Pathology
and Anatomical Sciences to found that department's Integrative Anatomy
group where she is Professor and Director of Anatomical Sciences.

Talk: Headscarves and Hymens, Ottawa Writer's Festival

Ottawa Writer's Festival presents Headscarves and Hymens
with Mona Eltahawy

Hosted by CBC's Lucy van Oldenbarneveld

Saturday April 25

2:00pm @ Christ Church Cathedral • 414 Sparks Street

Mona Eltahawy, an award-winning Egyptian-American feminist writer and
commentator, wrote an article for Foreign Policy entitled "Why Do They
Hate Us?"; "they" being Muslim men, "us" being women. The piece
sparked controversy, of course.

In Headscarves and Hymens , she takes her argument further. Drawing on
her years as a campaigner and a commentator on women's issues in the
Middle East, she explains that since the Arab Spring began, women in
the Arab world have had two revolutions to undertake: one fought with
men against oppressive regimes; and another fought against an entire
political and economic system that treats women in countries from
Yemen and Saudi Arabia to Egypt, Tunisia and Libya as second-class
citizens.

Join us for an inside look at the "toxic mix of culture and religion
that few seem willing or able to disentangle lest they blaspheme or
offend." A manifesto motivated by hope and fury in equal measure, this
session with Mona Eltahawy promises to be as illuminating as it is
incendiary.
