The Association for Feminist Anthropology will celebrate its 25th anniversary this year, marking our inception as a formal AAA Section. Since 1988 AFA has had an impressive history fostering critical inquiry related to women and gender, a history that intersects with other disciplines, discourses, and social categories. Today feminist anthropology has permeated our epistemology and pedagogy.
To mark this important anniversary, the Association for Feminist Anthropology will author an annotated history of the AFA, using the AFA Archives housed at the Smithsonian and other sources. Research will be conducted by a student intern through the AAA Summer Internship program. The finished product will be a useful guidebook for research and scholarship related to our mission: pedagogy and scholarship in feminist anthropology.
To defray the costs of hosting an AFA Summer Intern estimated at $4,000, the AFA is embarking on a fund-raising drive. We ask you to donate to the AFA Summer Internship Program through the AAA, using the attached form. All donations are fully tax-deductible.
