Anthropology Works

In 2008, CoPAPIA endorsed a new direction and new name for the CoPAPIA column—“Anthropology Works.”  The idea was to broaden the types of issues covered in the column, and to introduce an element of discussion and interchange.  We wanted to broaden authorship, as well,  and address pressing issues for practitioners and applied anthropologists across all the subdisciplines and professions that make up anthropology.  You will see columns discussing the proposed changes for ethics in AAA’s by-laws and providing examples of contemporary issues in ethics faced by professional anthropologists; how anthropologists in practice are addressing homelessness; how museum anthropologists are doing applied anthropology and changing the nature of museums in communities, among other topics.  Wherever possible, CoPAPIA tries to link the theme of the column with the themes in the Anthropology News issues.
