Survey: The Effects of COVID-19 on the Anthropological Community

The anthropological community is facing new challenges and hardships brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Recognizing the pandemic’s uneven impact across institutions, departments, and career positions, the Association for the Anthropology of Policy (ASAP) aims to better understand how the pandemic is affecting community members’ lives. Please tell us about your experiences! We will use the data collected from this survey to author a white paper and offer recommendations to the AAA. We will also share aggregated results of the survey with the broader AAA community.


We ask that you take a few moments to complete this survey, which we have designed to gather data about your experiences. Your answers will be recorded anonymously. The survey will close at the end of the day on Thursday, June 25th. Please share widely.


Thank you for your participation. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Georgia Hartman (, Chandra Middleton (, or Adrian Wong (
