About

We are the Culture & Agriculture (C&A) Section of the American Anthropological Association (AAA). C&A aims to develop the study and understanding of agrarian systems from a holistic, social science perspective, and to link academics and practitioners concerned with agrarian issues, agricultural development, and agricultural systems through dissemination of scientific research, encouragement of effective instruction, and to encourage application of knowledge to public policy.

C&A is a membership organization governed by its bylaws. The main activities of C&A include:
• Publication of the CAFE Journal
• Sponsorship and organization of panels, special sessions, and workshops at the AAA aanual meetings
• Publication of regular columns in Anthropology News
• Sponsorship of the Robert Netting Best Student Paper Prize
• Maintain regular communication among members through theCulture_aglist electronic mailing list.

As stated in our Bylaws, the purpose of the Culture and Agriculture section is: “(a) to develop the study and understanding of agrarian systems from a holistic, social science perspective, and (b) to link academics and practitioners concerned with agrarian issues, agricultural development, and agricultural systems through dissemination of scientific research, encouragement of effective instruction, and to encourage application of knowledge to public policy.”
