Jennifer Cearns and Laura Haapio-Kirk are the Leach/RAI Fellows in Public Anthropology for 2020.

This is a new Fellowship, supported by the Esperanza Trust, intended to improve the profile of anthropology in public debate. Despite the potential of anthropologists to make vital contributions, politicians and the press are much more likely to consult economists, psychologists and a variety of other specialists. This Fellowship intends to amplify the voice of anthropologists in public arenas on topical issues such as climate change, migration, and global health, through a variety of media and events.
