Association of Social Anthropologists

Nature volume 159, page 703 (24 May 1947) | Download Citation



AN Association of Social Anthropologists was founded on July 23, 1946, in response to the general opinion among social anthropologists in Great Britain that the subject has reached a stage of development warranting the establishment of a professional organisation. Its objects are to promote the study and teaching of social anthropology as a specialized branch of anthropology ; to represent the interests and maintain the professional standards of the subject; to arrange periodic conferences of the members of the Association ; and to secure publication of researches under its auspices. It is intended to publish a journal, Annals of Social Anthropology, as soon as arrangements can be made.
