ALLA Section Survey

Section Survey

The American Anthropological Association is organizing a section summit that will address the following issues.  I am hoping to bring a range of responses from ALLA.  Please take a moment to look at these questions and send answers to me,  I will consolidate the answers and present them at our business meeting and as part of the section summit.  Thanks, Miguel

  1. What skills do anthropology graduates in your area of specialization need to succeed in positions beyond the university?
  2. What strategies can faculty and community members adopt that would enable successful internships, class research projects, and post-graduate employment?
  3. How might anthropology programs evolve to face the changing job market?
  4. What changes in the curriculum would be useful for such students?
  5. Finally, how do new anthropologists gain access to that job market in your area?
