COPAA is one of the key sponsors of the "Building Careers in Anthropology" Conference that is being hosted by Anthropology's Career Readiness Commission in conjunction with Fordham University. The conference is open to anthropology students (community college to PhD), practitioners, and instructors from any subfield.
The day will consist of plenary sessions and interactive workshops. Students will learn to use their knowledge and skills of anthropology to secure employment. Practitioners will have opportunities to discover new avenues for their careers. Instructors will explore ways of building in aspects of application and practice into teaching their anthropology students. A highlight of the day will be a plenary given by Gillian Tett (The Financial Times) whose talk focuses on "Communicating Anthropology."
Registration will begin in late March. More information will be forthcoming.
