Teaching anthropology network

The Teaching Anthropology Network was established in 1996 in Barcelona and is one of the oldest EASA networks. The aim of the network is to stimulate discussion and exchange of ideas about teaching anthropology across Europe. We do this through arranging conferences, workshops, publications etc. around teaching and learning anthropology.

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.

The Teaching Anthropology Network (TAN) aims to focus discussion on the problems and potentials of teaching and learning anthropology in the twenty-first century. It organises and publicises events, and provides information about relevant resources and publications. Read more about the network's background.

A useful way of receiving news is to subscribe to the mailing list - EASA members and others interested in teaching and learning anthropology are invited to subscribe.
