Study of Practicing Anthropologists: Call for Participation

[Re-posted from AnthroDesign] 

Help Us To Understand the Careers of Practicing And Professional Anthropologists as they relate to Academic Institutions 

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.  The American Anthropological Association’s (AAA) Committee on Practicing, Applied and Public Interest Anthropology (CoPAPIA) 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 srijmans at memphis dot edu if you would like to know more.  We will follow up with more information on the survey and how you can participate.

Please share this announcement with friends and colleagues who might be interested in the study.
