Material Detail: “Handbook on Ethical Issues in Anthropology”
Handbook on Ethical Issues in Anthropology
This handbook is intended for anthropologists to help them consider ethical issues in their own research and to help them more effectively teach ethical issues to anthropology students. Some of this material might be useful to faculty planning lessons (or research), and depending on the course, much of it might be useful reading for students. Chapters 3 and 4 provide 25 case studies of ethical dilemmas. Some case studies include responses from other practitioners analyzing the choices the anthropologist made.

I selected about half the ethical cases included in chapters 3 and 4 for students to read for homework early in my introductory anthropology course. Our discussion at the next class was extremely lively; the students were fascinated by the cases and their implications and we had a very productive discussion of ethical problems in anthropology that helped the students understand these issues far more deeply than they would have from a textbook discussion of ethics.
