New Executive Board Statement on Evaluating Scholarship Through Tenure and Promotion

The AAA Executive Board on May 21, 2011 adopted and endorsed a statement on Evaluating Scholarship on Practicing, Applied, Public Interest, and Engaged Anthropology Through Tenure & Promotion.

AAA recognizes the growing number of anthropologists who identify as practicing, applied, public interest, or engaged anthropologists. Departments of anthropology and their home colleges are thus challenged with documenting and evaluating the scholarly nature of this type of work in faculty promotion and tenure decisions. Accordingly, the AAA offers the following guidelines developed for departmental and college T&P committees for the evaluation of scholarship in the realm of practicing, applied, public interest, and engaged anthropology for consideration in tenure cases and promotion to associate and full professor.

The full statement and additional resources are also available on the AAA’s Department website.

Applied Anthropologists Release Report on Organizations Working with Latina Immigrants

AAA members and applied anthropologists Jane Henrici and Patricia Foxen will be participating in a report release forum held at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars on Friday, March 25 at 1:30pm. This forum focuses on issues facing both Latina immigrants and the organizations that work to help them.  Jane Henrici, Study Director at the Institute for Women’s Policy Research, is co-author of the report, Organizations Working with Latina Immigrants: Resources and Strategies for Change, to be released at the event; the report is based on a two-year research project that explores how nonprofit organizations and religious congregations seek to advance the rights and well-being of Latina immigrants in Atlanta, Phoenix, and Northern Virginia. Patricia Foxen, Associate Director of Research, National Council of La Raza, is chairing two sessions of presentations from researchers, organizational leaders, and advocates working closely with immigrant women and their families.
