Annals of the ASA and Ethical Guidelines

A proposal to no longer seek information from departments for the online annals (which replaced the printed version in 2008) was approved by members at the 2014 AGM. The archive of annals can still be accessed below, and current information on anthropology departments and courses can be found via the links below. If your institution is missing, or you wish a different link to be used, please email us on
The directory of members has, for some years now, been an online tool: Directory.
