Anthropology: Web Sites (Online)

Associations and Additional Web Sites

  • American Anthropology Association -- the American Anthropological Association (AAA) is the world's largest organization of individuals interested in anthropology. Although there were several other American anthropological societies in existence at the turn of the 20th century, this new, national organization was formed "to promote the science of anthropology, to stimulate and coordinate the efforts of American anthropologists, to foster local and other societies devoted to anthropology, to serve as a bond among American anthropologists and anthropologic[al] organizations present and prospective, and to publish and encourage the publication of matter pertaining to anthropology.
  • Colby's Department of Anthropology -- 

    Anthropology students explore the great diversity of human social and cultural experience, complex social identities, and patterns of globalization, all of which are fundamental to understanding the workings of the world. Whether your interest is in local communities or global connections, anthropology offers tools for understanding how people everywhere both shape and are shaped by the dynamism of cross-cultural intersections, history, and meaning.

  • Theory in Anthropology--definitions, history, and current research of a variety of subdisciplines and specializations of anthropology, with links as appropriate, as well as a chronological survey of the development of the discipline and a section on prominent anthropological theorists.
