EASA Applied Anthropology Network

Established in 2011, Applied Anthropology Network (AAN) has become the main European platform for sharing information and experiences related to the applications of anthropology and ethnography. The network enables a circular transfer of knowledge between academia, private and public sectors, NGOs, interest groups and individuals. It supports employment of anthropologists outside academia.





The network currently serves 240+ registered scholars active in 50 different countries, 600+ Applied Anthro Collab Group members and 11,000+ social media followers.

AAN membership is free. Feel free to join EASA and enjoy the benefits of being its member.

Convenors of the network should be professionally active in academic and/or corporate worlds. Serving convenors are elected for up to four consecutive years at network meetings. The team favours horizontal decision-making structure, so network members are invited to propose new activities, projects, and organizational moves anytime.
