Anthropology and science and technology studies have moved way beyond academic settings to tackle a range of issues, problems, and policies that are affecting people globally. This section provides a space to talk about conducting projects, research, and applied activities that impact the people whom we partner with to propose solutions to contemporary problems. We encourage contributions from practitioners, consultants, and researchers to talk about their experiences and exchange ideas that emerge from a variety of non-academic settings. Consider this a launching pad for promoting new ideas and connecting with others who are share similar interests and a passion for promoting social justice.
