CREOLE Consortium supports Polish Anthropology

The CREOLE consortium  unanimously signed a letter to the Polish Minister of Science and Higher Education pointing out the dangers of no longer listing anthropology/ethnology as an academic discipline in its own right. Currently the discipline is hid behind the fuzzy label of "Studies of Culture and Religion". The CREOLE Consortium is one of many associations to protest this move, among them the European Association of Social Anthropologists (EASA) and the International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences (IUAES).
