The Building Careers in Anthropology was a resounding success. This comment by one instructor seems to convey the spirit and resolve of the Commission: “The conference was spot on! I came away with a renewed sense of hope for the future of the discipline.”
Please take some time to review:
- the Commission’s past year and current state (Briody plenary, and future (Nolan plenary)
- communicating the value of anthropology to others (Tett plenary)
- the 12 workshops on various career-preparation topics, effectiveness in the workplace, teaching practice to students, and showcasing anthropology through social media.
