Welcome to the SfAA!

The Society for Applied Anthropology (SfAA) was founded in 1941 to promote the investigation of the principles of human behavior and the application of these principles to contemporary issues and problems.  The Society is unique among professional associations in membership and purpose, representing the interests of professionals in a wide range of settings - academia, business, law, health and medicine, government, etc. The unifying factor is a commitment to making an impact on the quality of life in the world.

The Society for Applied Anthropology hosts an annual meeting each year for its membership. The 79th annual meeting will be held in Portland, OR from March 19-23, 2019. The theme for this meeting will be Engaging Change in Turbulent Times. Go to Annual Meeting for more information. 

The Society for Applied Anthropology proudly sponsors prestigious awards including the Malinowski Award, the Peter K. New Award, and the Sol Tax Award. Additionally, the SfAA co-sponsors the Margaret Mead Award with the American Anthropological Association.
