L6 N2 Q6 W4 W9 Engaging Anthropology in Practice: Developing Training for Engagement Beyond the Academy Engaging Anthropology in Practice (EAP) is a series of workshop exchanges that bring together early career anthropologists and professionals from broadcast and print media, the arts and education. The project aims to develop training models for early career anthropologists that will provide us with the skills to better reach audiences outside the academy. The project was initiated in 2009 by postgraduate students at the University of Aberdeen and is advised by Thomas Hylland Eriksen of the University of Oslo. EAP functions within the network of university Anthropology departments that make up the Scottish Training in Anthropological Research (STAR) consortium (Edinburgh, St. Andrews, Glasgow and Aberdeen). It is hoped that the models for engagement and training developed within EAP will have an impact on the nature and content of postgraduate training in Scotland and beyond. Project coordinators also seek collaboration and dialogue with people and groups carrying out related work elsewhere within and beyond the UK in the development of models for training. EAP recently held a very successful panel at the 2010 meeting of the European Association of Social Anthropologists in order to discuss pedagogical models trialled elsewhere in Europe. The EASA event provoked enthusiastic discussion, and it is hoped that this mailing list, and a discussion group on the Open Anthropology Cooperative will become forums for further dialogue.
