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. AAA offers a number of resources to assist with this process.
Today's anthropologists do not just work in exotic locations. Anthropologists can be found in a surprising array of fields and careers. Anthropologists can be found in corporations, all levels of government, educational institutions and non-profit associations. Anthropologists work in disaster areas, including Ground Zero in New York and the Gulf Coast in the aftermath of hurricane Katrina.
Whatever their field of choice, anthropologists can change the way we view and interact with our world.
