Networks: Teaching anthropology network
The professional lives of European Social Anthropologists cover a wide terrain, but teaching is an important common denominator to which many devote a great deal of time, energy and creativity. It is through teaching and learning that new generations of anthropologists are formed under conditions that are constantly evolving: student enrolment has increased, fieldwork sites and topics are becoming more varied, and university reforms affect the environment of teaching and learning.
TAN panel at EASA2014: call for papers
The Uses of Internet Technologies in Teaching Anthropology
The network is convening a panel during the EASA biennial in Tallinn this summer, and the call for papers is open.
Short abstract: The internet has greatly affected the conditions for teaching and learning anthropology being both a tool of democratization and participation and a source of alienation. In this workshop we invite people to reflect on and share their experiences of using I-technologies in teaching anthropology..
The Teaching Anthropology Network (TAN) aims to focus discussion on the problems and potentials of teaching and learning anthropology in the twenty-first century.
