Abstract:

"Public Anthropology seeks to bring social transformation through engagement with public problems in public ways. It emphasizes the anthropologist's role as an engaged intellectual, as someone who actively addresses central issues of our time. It continues anthropology's commitment to being an ethnographic witness, to describing, in human terms, how life is lived beyond the borders of many readers' experiences. But it also affirms a commitment to reframing the terms of public debate - transforming received, accepted understandings of social issues with new insights, new framings. Public anthropology involves an active, citizenship that, in striving for social justice, empowers others and transforms political structures. By reforming the anthropology's role within the academy, Public Anthropology hopes to provide a continuing, dynamic engine for social change in the wider world. The key to such change is enlarging the public sphere - bringing to broad public awareness the contradictions and corruptions that limit social justice so deliberative democracy can work its will - transforming social structures for the better, that is to say, through the dynamics of democratic action"--Dr. Robert Borofsky.

Produces Public Anthropology book series and two e-journals (both on this web site): Public Anthropology: Engaging Ideas and Public Anthropology: The Graduate Journal. It also contains an archive involving two summaries for each article published by the American Anthropologist from 1888 to 2000.
