Organization & Purpose
FOSAP is a membership committee of the General Anthropology Division
(GAD) of the American Anthropological
Association (AAA). It is designed to further the needs of faculty and
students in small programs in Universities, Colleges, and Community Colleges,
as well as public or private agencies, consulting firms, and any other small
groups with interests in anthropology. Members are welcome who work
with, or care about, such organizations. In practice, our interests
have centered around coping with instability for small departments in times
of academic downsizing and in the challenges and opportunities for teaching
anthropology in such small departments. We are open to any other contributions
and interests from our members and, in particular, in fostering interactions
among members from different institutional backgrounds.
The current co-chairs of FOSAP are Sarah Hautzinger
of Colorado College (CO), and Merrily Stover of University of Maryland- University College. They invite readers of this page to send them issues for FOSAP to address or ideas
for FOSAP-sponsored symposia.
Secretary is Clare Boulanger. Co-Editors of Anthro-At-Large are Christina Beard-Moose and Connie DeRoche. Webmaster is Amber R. Clifford-Napoleone.
