Anthropological Connections: OUAMEAS - Oxford University Anthropology and Museum Ethnography Alumni Society

It's a bit of long story as to how and why I have been involved with this group.  Suffice to say that I was in touch with Dr Helen Carr, my main academic referee, after I taking redundancy last April, and she was looking for committee members for a society she had in mind.  She came up trumps in persuading various Oxford people and departments that an anthropology alumni group was sadly lacking in the firmament of post-Oxford associational life. In July, I took on the challenge of a website, and with the aid of a painfully cheap package, created something that pleased.  Well, it's all gone on from strength to strength.  I'm rather proud of the OUAMEAS website now (take a look at - I'd value your suggestions and comments). 

The pictures to the right tell parts of the story.  I had to create my own stock photos (eg. top) for the initial OUAMEAS website - so we didn't infringe any copyrights.  Later, members started submitting their own photos, primarily of exciting sights seen upon their travels.  I still need to remember to carry a camera around for OUAMEAS events (eg. bottom).  The main Oxford input has been the permission to work around the Oxford University logo and with brand colours: looks quite neat (see screenshot, centre bottom, main image).

As of April 2012, I have got PayPal running and incorporated, for membership purposes.

And, of course, I've got this website running once more. It is the main laboratory to work out and perfect things before I use them elsewhere.  My main test at the moment is working out the speed with which I can create and publish a website: I've set myself two working days on this site, to work out relative labour costs. I'm beginning to get an idea of how to develop some cost-effective service.
