ABOUT THE AAS
Founded in 1973, the Australian Anthropological Society (AAS) is a member-based association committed to representing the profession of anthropology in Australia. As the largest anthropological association in Australia, the AAS represents a diverse membership of professionals, researchers, students and others with an interest in anthropology.
The objectives of the Society are:
- to advance anthropology as a professional discipline grounded in the systematic pursuit of knowledge and to promote its responsible use in the service of humankind
- to promote professional training, knowledge sharing, and practice in anthropology.
The multi-faceted goals of the Society have led to a vibrant and engaged community of anthropologists, including scholars, industry practitioners and students.
The Society recognises that anthropological work is broad in scope and includes academic research, teaching, consultancies, industry engagements, advocacy, activism and public commentary.
Membership is open to anyone interested in anthropology.
