The High Plains Society
for
Applied Anthropology

 
The High Plains Society for Applied Anthropology is a regional professional organization of university and college teachers, students, practitioners (government, private, consulting, etc.), community representatives, and others interested in using the tools of anthropology and related fields to solve human and environmental problems.

While founded and based in the High Plains region of the United States (a vast area encompassing the eastern Rocky Mountains and western Great Plains), we have members from throughout North America and the world. We share knowledge and build professional and personal connections through an annual conference and other meetings; a professional, peer-reviewed journal (The Applied Anthropologist ); an electronic newsletter and listservs; and this website.


2017 HPSfAA Spring Conference

The High Plains Society for Applied Anthropology is now accepting papers for the 37th annual spring conference held from April 27 - 30, at Auraria Campus in Denver, Colorado

Social Movements: Ethics, Advocacy, and Activism in Contemporary Society

As with other professionals, anthropologists grapple with their role in society. The identities of peoples with whom we work intersect with and are shaped inter-generationally by politics, communities, economics, and the environment as driven largely by marginalization and systematic discrimination. This has been noticed throughout history, and no less contemporarily, through movements such as The Arab Spring, Black Lives Matters, NoDAPL (No Dakota Access Pipeline); local and national discourse on border and immigration politics, marriage equality, and political elections; and even areas of claimed objectivity such as scientific rigor. Applied anthropologists at times find not only that their own identities intersect with the above elements, but their selfidentities also influence the decision-making within their professional and personal lives. We welcome any and all community members, academics, activists and other practitioners to submit proposals for papers, presentations, panels, workshops, and demonstrations that will facilitate discussion and knowledge growth in relation to engaging in social movements, as well as the professional and personal ethics related to engaging and/or disengaging through advocacy and activism.
