Resources to Help AAA Members Thoughtfully Assist the People of Japan at this Time of Crisis

AAA’s section, the Society for East Asian Anthropology (SEAA) is actively in tune to the events and needs in Japan following the devastating earthquake, tsunami and the evolving nuclear danger. With the assistance of SEAA’s current president, Jennifer Robertson, AAA President Virginia R. Dominguez would like to make available to the entire membership the following resources: news sources, resources for finding people in Japan, donating funds, connecting with others, and otherwise finding ways to help the people of Japan. 

Click here for our most up-to-date list of resources.

In addition, AAA urges its members to consider consulting with our partners in the Japanese Society of Cultural Anthropology (JASCA) and the World Council of Anthropological Associations. Our JASCA colleagues will be especially thoughtful and well-informed, and it is to our collective advantage to seek their counsel.

Outside Japan, those among us who are specialists on Japan, disasters, science and technology, and environmental matters are already answering media questions and assisting in the ways their expertise equips them. Thank you for your work, your knowledge, and your guidance.

Other members should consider utilizing our still new AAA Writers Circle to contribute widely and anthropologically to public knowledge and analysis in the United States and indeed all the countries in which AAA members live. 

On behalf of all AAA members, President Dominguez sends our deepest condolences and expressions of concern to everyone in Japan, their family members and their friends.
