Webinar on Publishing, Promotion and Tenure – 10/14 @ 1pm EST

Join us Friday, October 14th at 1:00pm EST for a webinar on the future of publishing, promotion and tenure.

This digital event should be a fascinating conversation between three anthropologists, each with extensive background with the promotion and tenure process. The Committee for the Future of Print and Electronic Publishing  is organizing an online webinar to discuss the role of digital publications and the rapidly changing publishing landscape around us and how these forces intersect with promotion and tenure. Join:

· Former AAA President Don Brenneis, professor of anthropology at UC-Santa Cruz and author of scholarship on peer review and assessment cultures.
· Provost of the University of Missouri, Brian Foster, a former anthropology department chair now in a leading role with promotion and tenure assessment and decisions.
· Professor of Anthropology, Richard Handler, who served for ten years as Associate Dean for Academic Programs at the University of Virginia.
· Ed Liebow, AAA Treasurer, will be the Master of Ceremonies.

We hope you join us for an illuminating conversation about the role of publications and tenure, evaluation standards, and the changing digital landscape of scholarly production. If you are interested in registering for this session (or wish to suggest other topics for CFPEP to consider) please email: eguevara@aaanet.org.

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.
