Malinowski Award Monograph

The Dynamics of Applied Anthropology in the Twentieth Century: The Malinowski Award Papers

The Malinowski Award - a Silver Medallion with Indigenous EngravingThomas Weaver, Editor and Contributor of Introductory Materials

The Malinowski Award has been presented annually since 1973 by the Society for Applied Anthropology in recognition of efforts to understand and serve the needs of the world’s society through social science. Bronislaw Malinowski (1884-1942) was a leading figure during the 1920s and 1930s in the nascent but growing discipline of anthropology. While best known for his contribution to fieldwork methods and anthropological theory, he also promoted the practical use of anthropology. Anthropologists, he argued, must advocate for native populations, involve themselves in policy matters and politics, and research contemporary social issues. The careers of the twenty-eight persons who had received the award by 1999 illustrate major themes in the development of applied anthropology in the twentieth century, and their Malinowski Award addresses provide an interesting reflection on issues and events of this era. This collection presents all the Malinowski Award addresses that exist in written form, as well as a biographical essay on each recipient and on Bronislaw Malinowski.

The Malinowski Award Collection is available in electronic format as pdf (Acrobat Reader) files.

A Publication of the Society for Applied Anthropology

How can interested citizens and scholars respond to the widespread abuse of human rights in contemporary society? The essays in this collection address this question and articulate clear directions for action. Using case examples, the authors explore new directions in method and approach, arguing persuasively for a focus on broad policy and more direct means of intervention.
