The Issue: A great deal of material already exists pertaining to anthropological practice, written by both practitioners and academics. How could this material be collected and organized in a way that is useful for students, instructors, and practitioners? Group 2 has been compiling existing resources and organizing them into a repository on the Commission’s website under the “Resources” tab.
Data/Diagnosis: Group 2 has assembled over 200 resources to date. The resources are divided into four categories:
- History and current state of applied and practicing anthropology
- Teaching and pedagogical approaches
- Information on practitioner careers across sectors
- Career and professionalism resources for anthropological careers in industry, non-profits, and government
Insights: Current resources reflect Group 2’s composition and experience so they pertain primarily to cultural anthropology. Future work will target linguistic anthropology, archaeology, and biological anthropology.
Final Products: A repository of compiled resources including articles, podcasts, webinars, training materials, client proposals and presentations anonymized, links to additional anthropology resources, and more
