Welcome to Educational Anthropolicy, a website created by Jill P. Koyama, a sociocultural anthropologist committed to providing a public platform in which anthropologists, educators, and students can engage in, challenge, and contribute to contemporary dialogues and debates on educational policy. With expertise in issues of education (broadly defined) and social policy, those situated in the field of anthropology and education are uniquely poised to contribute to the multiple and intersecting policy conversations. This site aims to integrate anthropological perspectives with scholarship from other disciplines to further re-examine the linkages between culture, education, and social policy.
The contents of the site change. There are currently links to related websites, organizations, readings, places, and anthropologists and educational researchers whose innovative, thought-provoking, and timely work explicitly addresses policy processes . You’ll also find links to my recent articles, blogs, and op-eds. Ultimately, Educational Anthropolicy will feature blogs hosted by guest scholars, book reviews, and a variety of posts from anthropologists studying issues of education.
