A forum for anthropologists who did (or intend to) conduct long-term fieldwork in Tibetan societies and Tibeto-Burman language-speaking groups ranging from Nepal (Tamang, Gurung, Limbu, etc.) to Southwest China (Naxi, Mosuo, Yi, etc.).
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.
There are many anthropology journals. Unfortunately, not all of them are read or heard of equally! This is a group for posting call-for-papers for all known and unknown journals, promoting the OAC's spirit of international cooperation.
Whether you investigate the use of mobile phones, Aboriginal paintings, ethnographic displays in museums, cultural properties of artefacts, the role of artefacts in rituals, festivals, history of collections, techniques or new technologies...
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.
For those interested in taking anthropology to audiences beyond the academy. We hope to share ideas about achieving a more publicly engaged discipline and specifically about training anthropologists to better communicate with non-academic audiences.
