Are you a practicing or professional anthropologist working outside of an academic organization? If so, are you collaborating in any way with an academic institution as part of your professional life?
We are aware from anecdotes that many practicing and professional anthropologists participate in the academic community in one way or another. But we know little about what this participation is like, how academic responsibilities figure in their careers, and how practitioners are compensated for their academic commitments. AAA’s Committee on Practicing, Applied and Public Interest Anthropology is seeking volunteers to share their experiences and views on this issue in a 30-minute phone interview. We will draw on the data we collect to make available various models for department-practitioner collaboration and offer recommendations for appropriate compensation.
Please contact Sanne Roijmans at email@example.com if you would like to know more. We will follow up with more information on the survey and how you can participate.
