The World Council of Anthropological Associations (WCAA) is a network of national and international associations that aims to promote worldwide communication and cooperation in anthropology.
Its primary objectives are:
- to promote the discipline of anthropology in an international context
- to promote cooperation and the sharing of information among world anthropologists
- to promote jointly organized events of scientific debate, and
- co-operation in research activities and dissemination of anthropological knowledge.
For more detailed information about these objectives, read the WCAA constitution which was updated in 2013.
If your association is interested to join the WCAA, read further information here.
A virtual seminar pilot project took place in October. A collaboration of four anthropological associations, EASA/ABA/AAA/CASCA.
We are publishing a new section of our popular E-journal: déjà Lu Translations. Read the first translated article: The Limits of Contextualism. Malagasy Heavy Metal, "Satanic" Aesthetics, and the Anthropological Study of Popular Music by Markus Verne.

The blog can potentially serve as a world forum for anthropologists' debates. It's open to everyone. Add comments or better still, write your own piece on any anthropological topic, email it to cmgordon(at)cuhk.edu.hk, and we’ll post it.
