AMERICAN ANTHROPOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION

Advancing Knowledge, Solving Human Problems

aka AAA   |   Arlington, VA, VA   |  www.americananthro.org

Mission

To advance anthropology, and through it, the understanding of humankind, by publishing important scholarship, enhancing teaching, research, and practice, and by applying scholarly findings to the solution of pressing societal problems.

Notes from the nonprofit

Founded in 1902, the American Anthropological Association is the world’s largest scholarly and professional organization of anthropologists. The Association is dedicated to advancing human understanding and applying this understanding to the world’s most pressing problems. While 75 percent of our members are employed in higher education or are students of anthropology, about 25 percent of our members work in the public, private, and non-governmental sectors, beyond the academy. The Association is organized into 40 sections, each reflecting specialized domains of knowledge. We publish a portfolio of 22 journals, offer career planning and professional development services, support college and university departments, award numerous prizes and fellowships, sponsor a paid summer internship program, and stage research conferences in the Fall and Spring each year.
