Introducing Australian Anthropology Forums

A new and powerful discussion forums website to facilitate communications about all things anthropology. 

The forums site can be accessed directly (www.aasforums.asn.au) or via the main AAS site (www.aas.asn.au). This configuration was chosen so that non-members can still participate in anthropology networks. For full details follow the link below. The key points are:
  • AAS members have full access to the forums site and login details for both sites are the same (if you are already logged in at this main site simply click the AAS Forums link and you will be redirected, with your login still active) 
  • Non-AAS members are welcome to sign up for forums participation 
  • It is possible to create multiple forums, which can be set up to function as online and email-based forums (aka listservers)
  • Forums participants can submit requests for dedicated forums (e.g. for specific topics, purposes or sub-groups)
  • All participants are subject to the moderation rules (AAS members and non-members alike)

The AAS Stands with Yuendumu

In the wake of the police shooting of Kumunjayi Walker, the AAS stands in solidarity with Yuendumu community and the pursuit of justice for Kumunjayi. We grieve with the Warlpiri families, who have lost a son, grandson, great-grandson, nephew, cousin and partner. We heed the voices, perspectives and leadership from Warlpiri communities, their analyses of the situation and the conditions from which it arose, and their recommendations for change.
