The Collaborative Anthropology Network

A multi-service platform for anthropologists, cultural advocates, and field-adjacent researchers re-imagined as a more field-specific, collaborative, and proactive site for anthropological discourse with a commitment to promote the full diversity of anthropology as a field, as a practice, and as an agent of cultural advocacy.

“With the future orientation and the immediacy of digital production of cultural information, we can begin to reconsider the relationship between cultural knowledge and social action – not just a system for documenting and preserving, but an epistemology forever in motion, a repertoire.”

Wendy F. HsuIn The Routledge Handbook of Digital Ethnography

Your work, enhanced and distributed

Socially-Integrated Anthropology Blogs

You no longer need to set up and maintain a blog and promote each post across multiple social media channels to reach an audience. Start an anthropology blog right from your social profile and watch as every post is distributed across an entire network of your connections, followers, related groups, and even just interested visitors in the general public! The social features and advanced search filters ensure that your content is connected with every potential audience. Stay tuned for more features including interactive content and presentation capabilities!

Collaborative interpretation and analysis

Annotation widget and aggregation dashboard

The CollabAnthNetwork is not just a social network, it is a collaborative research tool! The integrated widget allows you to highlight, annotate, and tag useful research insights on the network and across the internet. A CAQDAS-inspired dashboard of your publicly- and privately-saved annotations allows you to analyze, review, and share the annotations that you have collected right from your social profile!

For anthropology-related organizations too!

Organizational Directory

Are you an anthropology-related consultancy, research firm, or provide field-adjacent services? Reach potential clients, volunteers, or donors by creating an organization listing. Start small with just a short description and a link to your organization’s website and contact information so people can find you, or, be more proactive and list your organization’s services, post regular timeline updates on what your organization’s been up to, and let users follow your organization on the Collaborative Anthropology Network!

A meeting place for expertise and opportunity

A full-fledged anthropology job board

An accessible, yet feature-rich anthropology-focused job board for both employers and job seekers! Search for the perfect match, create alerts and bookmarks, and manage your application submissions.
