Why Join SAFN?
SAFN is made up of individuals who work on a wide range of topics related to food and nutrition. SAFN is a unit of the American Anthropological Association, which is the largest professional organization of anthropologists in the world. You don’t have to be an anthropologist to join—students and individuals working in related fields are welcome to join. Among the benefits of SAFN membership are:
- Access to the teaching resources on the website
- Access to the network of members and opportunities to make professional connections with others interested in food, nutrition, and anthropology
- Access to the SAFN listserv, which puts you in contact with the collective knowledge and wisdom of our members (once you join, the AAA will automatically add you to the listserv)
- Opportunities to participate in SAFN activities at the AAA meetings (which include tasty food and drink!)
- Access to any SAFN-sponsored publications
- Discounted registration for the annual AAA meetings for AAA members
- Many other benefits of AAA membership (see the AAA Website for more information)
How Do I Join?
Annual dues for SAFN membership are very reasonable. There are student and professional membership rates.
