This is a forum on educative practices, moments, systems, institutions (and their resistance), and those caught up in them as an object of anthropological inquiry. Includes traditional ethnographies of schools and related explorations beyond them.See More
A group for discussion of all aspects of the anthropology of religion. Discussion can concern cross-cultural analysis, or specific religions. Any other topic tangentially related to religion is also welcome, including folklore studies, etc.
Anthopology holds at its core the question of what it is to be a thinking, feeling human being. Emotion and how it is portrayed and interpreted across cultures helps us to reflect on aspects of power, agency and belonging.
The purpose of this group is to have a peg in the OAC for people to share what they can do, or would suggest can be done to carry on the usefulness of having 5000 anthropologists linked (however protractedly). Essentially Occupy it in the sense of bringing more life and meaning to a space.See More
OAC already has a group named Theory in Anthropology, a good place to discuss theories already embraced by anthropologists. This group is, instead, intended for discussion of theory found outside anthropology that anthropologists might find useful.
