Bringing Anthropology to their Peers
Each year, high schoolers interested in anthropology intern virtually at the American Anthropological Association to help bring anthropology to their peers. During their virtual internship, students work closely with staff to adapt anthropological articles to appeal to a younger audience who is new to anthropology or unfamiliar with how disciplinary knowledge can be applied to understand complex topics such as migration and displacement. In the past, students have adapted this work into research summaries, infographics, and informational videos. From 2020 to 2022, interns focused on the topic of migration, and their work can be found below.
