The Society for Cultural Anthropology, a section of the American Anthropological Association, constitutes a continuing effort to think expansively about the anthropological endeavor. Founded in the 1980s to highlight a concern for culture and to foster interdisciplinary connections, the Society is dedicated to interrogating and challenging the boundaries of the discipline. We welcome new points of view and approaches to a world forever in a state of becoming.

Most of the Society's members are based in the United States, although a significant number come from Canada, Europe, and Australia. Our members include students, faculty, and a growing number of scholars working outside the academy.
