Breaking down "silos" in anthropology

Take at look at this page on the NAPA website: It invites you to review recorded presentations from a 2019 AAA Presidential Session and add your thoughts to the discussion forum.


1) The ill-advised separation of theory from practice in anthropology

2) The creation of new collaboration models to bridge these silos

3) The remarks by Gillian Tett (Financial Times) who served as discussant

4) Questions to ponder: What is anthropology's collective future? How will we adopt, adapt, and create new models to develop as a collaborative discipline, using both theory and practice and reaching out to “the other”? How do we scale up collaboration within the discipline to be more engaged with each other and the world around us?
