The Equitable Transformation of Communities: A Conversation with John Arroyo

John Arroyo, SAR’s 2018–2019 Mellon fellow, grew up in a largely Mexican and Mexican American community in East LA.

Summer Scholar Colloquium: Nicholas Barron Brings the History of Anthropology into the Present

Summer Scholar Colloquium: Nicholas Barron Brings the History of Anthropology into the Present

In November 1981, anthropologists and tribal representatives gathered on the Pascua Pueblo Yaqui Reservation in southern Arizona for the 89th International Symposium, hosted by the Wenner-Gren Foundation.

How to Publish Your First Book: SAR Press Talks to Nicholas Barron

SAR Press is starting a new blog series comprised of interviews with scholars of color, first-generation scholars, and other scholars from marginalized communities who have recently published or are in the midst of publishing their first book and who can offer guidance and encouragement to colleagues who are just starting to think about publishing. We hope that these interviews make a small contribution to supporting junior scholars as they begin the publishing process.
