AAA Committee on Minority Issues in Anthropology

The AAA Committee on Minority Issues in Anthropology is dedicated to working on three major areas:

Current projects include seeking funding for supporting minority scholarship in anthropology at all levels, developing linkages with minority anthropologists, and assisting in defining anthropology's role in the discourse on cultural diversity. An ongoing activity is the development of a comprehensive database of minority anthropologists, including information on members' expertise on file, which can be made available to departments recruiting faculty or to funding agencies seeking reviewers.

AAA seeks racial/ethnic demographic information about anthropology students, faculty and practitioners. This information is gathered through surveys of academic departments and information solicited from AAA members.
