Anthropological Index Online - Published by the Royal Anthropological Institute (RAI) in cooperation with Anthropology Library and Research Centre at the British Museum, an index to articles in journals taken by the Library and to films held at the Royal Anthropological Institute.
Evolutionary Anthropology - Department at Duke University that focuses on the morphology, physiology, behavior and cognition of humans and non-human primates, as viewed from an evolutionary perspective.
Kroeber Anthropological Society - Publishes articles in the general field of anthropology (and all its subdisciplines) and neighboring fields which are of theoretical and/or practical interest. Hosts annual meetings. These meetings have taken many forms over the years: some have included papers representing the spectrum of anthropological interests, others have focused closely on specific topics. Several meetings have been held to honor the scholarship of retiring anthropologists, and one has taken the form of an Ethnographic Film Festival. Both the journal and conferences are designed and implemented by graduate students in the Department of Anthropology at UC Berkeley, with support from faculty and campus organizations, such as the Graduate Assembly.
Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology - Unites scientists with various backgrounds (natural sciences and humanities) whose aim is to investigate the history of humankind from an interdisciplinary perspective with the help of comparative analyses of genes, cultures, cognitive abilities, languages and social systems of past and present human populations as well as those of primates closely related to human beings.
Society for Medical Anthropology (SMA) - Promotes the study of anthropological aspects of health, illness, health care, and related topics and to encourage communication and utilization of the results obtained from such studies. SMA members receive the Medical Anthropology Quarterly.
American Folklife Center - Full texts of selected publications; digital presentations of online collections; links to other resources in ethnographic studies; Folkline Information Service, and Folklife Sourcebook: A Directory of Folklife Resources in the U.S..
American Indians of the Pacific Northwest Digital Collection - This site provides an extensive digital collection of original photographs and documents about the Northwest Coast and Plateau Indian cultures, complemented by essays written by anthropologists, historians, and teachers about both particular tribes and cross-cultural topics. These cultures have occupied, and in some cases still live in parts of Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana.
Anthropology Collection Database (California Academy of Sciences) - This research collection comprises approximately 17,000 objects, most of which are ethnographic. Items include materials from the indigenous cultures of western North America (exclusive of Mexico) and the Pacific Rim, including all Pacific islands and East Asia. Current strengths of the collection are general holdings from the U.S. Southwest and the Pacific Islands, and basketry from California. Earlier years of collecting have yielded both ethnographic and archaeological materials from East Africa, the Middle East, Europe, and Central and South America.
Artic Circle - Presents three themes crucial to the future of the people, land, and waters of the Arctic and Subarctic region: natural resources, history and culture; social equity and environmental justice through broad range of textual materials, art, photographic exhibits, and occasional sound and short video recordings.
Atapuerca: A World Heritage Site - In a small hill east of Burgos, evidence of the presence and lifeways of prehistoric humanity is preserved, spanning the time from one million years ago to the present.
Bibliography of Consciousness Studies - The list of references presented here has been compiled from suggestions provided by members and friends of SAC. Some of the references listed are from the field of the anthropology of consciousness in sensu strictu, others are from related or tangential fields. Many of these works have played a significant role in the development of the field, although they may no longer be regarded as accurate, up to date, or correct. For example, the works of Castaneda, once thought to be valid anthropological studies, are now more properly viewed as works of fiction. These are nevertheless included here because of the role they played in introducing the notion of "non-ordinary realities" to a wider audience.
Centre for Pacific and Asian Studies (CPAS) - CPAS has an interdisciplinary character and covers Oceania, including Australia and New Zealand, Continental Asia and insulair Southeast Asia. The staff consists of anthropologists, legal anthropologists, development sociologists, geographers, historians, and linguists at the University of Nijmegen and at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen, Netherlands.
David Harvey (Wikipedia article) - David Harvey (born 1935) is the Distinguished Professor of Anthropology at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY). A leading social theorist of international standing, he graduated from University of Cambridge with a PhD in Geography in 1961. He is the world's most cited academic geographer (according to Andrew Bodman, see Transactions of the IBG, 1991,1992), and the author of many books and essays that have been prominent in the development of modern geography as a discipline. His work has contributed greatly to broad social and political debate, most recently he has been credited with bringing back social class as a serious methodological tool in the critique of global capitalism, particularly in its neoliberal form.
Earliest Americans - U.S. National Park Service (NPS) program. NPS cultural anthropologists and ethnographers, under federal and agency mandates, give voice to living peoples linked to the parks by tradition, deep historical attachment, subsistence use, or other aspects of their culture. Ethnographers highlight this heritage for decision-makers in the planning and running of the parks-by formulating policies, conducting research, consulting with stakeholder groups, and managing cultural registries.
Evolutionary Anthropology - Focuses on issues of current interest in biological anthropology, paleoanthropology, archaeology, functional morphology, social biology, and bone biology-including dentition and osteology-as well as human biology, genetics, and ecology.
Evolutionary Anthropology (Wikipedia) - A backgrounder to evolutionary anthropology, the interdisciplinary study of the evolution of human physiology and human behaviour and the relation between hominids and non-hominid primates.
Field Museum, The - An international leader in evolutionary biology and paleontology, and archaeology and ethnography.
Focaal: Journal of Global and Historical Anthropology - A eer-reviewed journal advocating an approach that rests in the simultaneity of ethnography, processual analysis, local insights, and global vision. The journal strives for the resurrection of an 'anthropology at large', that can accommodate issues of the global south, post-socialism, mobility, metropolitan experience, capitalist power and popular resistance into integrated perspectives. Also see FocaalBlog.
Royal Anthropological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland (RAI) - Seeks to combine a distinguished tradition of scholarship stretching back over more than 150 years with the active provision of services to contemporary anthropology and anthropologists (including students of anthropology).
