Training Guides

These guides have been designed to help students and faculty prepare for and respond to the challenges of fieldwork. They are one small part of a wider cultural shift in our institutions and discipline that must happen to make anthropology more just and welcoming.

The guides are currently in draft form. We encourage you to engage with them and try them out in your institutions. Please tell us what works and what doesn’t. It’s our aim to make these guides as inclusive as possible, but we don’t speak for the whole discipline. We welcome all feedback that can help improve these resources for future scholars.
