Anthropologists and the Environment
The Anthropology and the Environment Committee of the RAI have put together a list of anthropologists who are interested in environmental issues. This list is a resource for other anthropologists and for those outside anthropology looking for a particular expertise.
The list can be consulted here.

CALL FOR PANEL PROPOSALS
We are very pleased to announce the call for panel proposals for the fourth of the RAI’s recent major conferences. As before, it will be jointly organised by the RAI and the BM’s Department for Africa, Oceania and the Americas, and held in the Clore Centre of the British Museum. We are also very pleased to be joined by the Department of Anthropology at the School of Oriental and African Studies, where a portion of the break-out rooms for the conference panels will be located in the newly refurbished Paul Webley Wing of Senate House.
Deadline: 30 June 2017
Ariadne van de Ven
The RAI Photography Committee greatly regret the passing of committee member and RAI Fellow Ariadne van de Ven. A photographic practitioner with longstanding experience working in Kolkota, India, Ariadne was a lively presence on the committee, bringing her photographic eye and input to our exhibitions, events, and publications. She will be sorely missed. Our condolences are with her family.
Anthropology & Photography
Anthropology & Photography is a new open-access publication series edited by the RAI Photography Committee. Emerging from the international conference of the same name organized by the RAI at the British Museum in 2014, the series will highlight and make available to the widest possible audience the best new work in the field.
We are eager to solicit new contributions from anthropologists and practitioners which could be visual, textual, or somewhere in between.
50 Years of Anthropology
The results of a British Academy funded project. You can see the full report here.
The nature of the Index means that many of the articles we incorporate would be difficult to find via other means such as through Google Scholar or similar search engines, so in many ways the AIO gives a clear and the most complete picture we can hope for of what anthropologists have been discovering for the last 50 years.
