Maximizing Impact in Anthropology and Education: Capitulations, Linkages, and Publics

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article describes several ways that anthropologists of education can maximize impact on knowledge projects, policies, and practices. The approaches discussed here are all anchored in powerful and distinctive qualities of our field, and include: (1) Centering our disciplinary authority by refusing to capitulate to dominant forms of knowledge, (2) adopting the sensibilities of public anthropology, and (3) being as expansive in our collaborations and networks as we are in our considerations of context.
