Studies in applied anthropology; v.2


In a set of case studies, anthropologists working with diverse organizations revisit historical debates about applied anthropology, define existing issues, and explore possible futures. Among the themes they develop are the relationship between academic and applied anthropology, anthropological identities in new working environments, innovative methodologies appropriate to the new contexts, and how anthropology is perceived from the outside.
