SfAA Community Network


Hello everyone,

A few fellow anthropologists have created a Slack channel to help foster community between people in the discipline. If you are interested, just go to www.anthrohangout.com and request to join.

If you do not know what Slack is check out Amy Santee's description below:

"Slack is a convenient way to communicate directly with folks at any time through public and private chat rooms (called "channels"), which have integrated file sharing and archived conversations. Each Slack "team" has user-generated, topic-specific channels. For this Anthropology "team", channels include everything from the four fields to applied anth, jobs, resources, conferences, news, students, and so on and so forth. You can be a part of whichever channels you want depending on your interests, log in any time to check messages, get notifications (if you so wish), etc. It's very customizable, and can be as much at the forefront or background of your life as you want it to be. (this is starting to sound like an ad, but really I'm just a big fan of it, and see a lot of potential and benefit for the wider anthropology community.)

Slack is accessible both as an app on desktop and mobile, as well as web browser. It has an excellent design and user experience that tops many other platforms. I have personally used it for work, friend groups, and various other professional and social topics, and find it to be a great way to keep in touch with others. 

Some of us anthropologists thought that the anthropology community would benefit from having its own "team" to call home, and we'd love you to be a part of it."

See you in Slack!
