Organization & Purpose

FOSAP is a membership committee of the General Anthropology Division (GAD) of the American Anthropological Association (AAA). It is designed to further the needs of faculty and students in small programs in Universities, Colleges, and Community Colleges, as well as public or private agencies, consulting firms, and any other small groups with interests in anthropology. Members are welcome who work with, or care about, such organizations. In practice, our interests have centered around coping with instability for small departments in times of academic downsizing and in the challenges and opportunities for teaching anthropology in such small departments. We are open to any other contributions and interests from our members and, in particular, in fostering interactions among members from different institutional backgrounds.


The current co-chairs of FOSAP are Sarah Hautzinger of Colorado College (CO), and Merrily Stover of University of Maryland- University College. They invite readers of this page to send them issues for FOSAP to address or ideas for FOSAP-sponsored symposia.

Secretary is Clare BoulangerCo-Editors of Anthro-At-Large are Christina Beard-Moose and Connie DeRocheWebmaster is Amber R. Clifford-Napoleone.
