The Anthropology of Higher Education Topical Interest Group (Higher Ed TIG) is an interdisciplinary group bringing together anthropologists and higher education scholars, practitioners, and administrators in other disciplines who are interested in anthropological perspectives on higher education. The mission of the Higher Ed TIG is to create impact on higher education operations, policy issues, instruction, and any other arising issues.
The research and practice of our affiliates address emerging questions about a wide array of developments in the higher education sector, including:
Organization of panels at the SfAA Annual Meetings
Publication of newsletters with updates for our affiliates
Organization of sessions and seminars at conferences of other organizations and on campuses
Publication of our affiliates’ research in various outlets
The Higher Ed TIG currently serves almost 500 affiliates, who stay connected via our listserv. The listserv serves to inform the affiliates about the Higher Ed TIG activities and provides an interactive platform for sharing a wide range of information related to anthropological perspectives on higher education, such as current developments in the field, research initiatives, publications, events, calls for papers, job opportunities, and so on.
Affiliation to the Higher Ed TIG is free. If you wish to subscribe to our listserv, please fill in this form: https://forms.gle/MBeChZDgV9q1LQDw7.
