About/Join

The Anthropology of Tourism Interest Group (ATIG) is an international network for collaboration and exchange of ideas and research.  It was created in 2012 at the annual meeting of the American Anthropological Association (AAA) and formally constituted as an AAA Interest Group in 2013.  ATIG organizes 1-2 sessions each year for the annual meeting of the AAA, as well as a business meeting and reception.

If you are already an AAA member and would like to join ATIG, log in to your member record on the AAA website and click “Add Interest Group” on the left.  Although there are no membership dues, only dues-paying members of the AAA are eligible to become voting members of ATIG.  Interested scholars may join the AAA and ATIG at the same time.

This website provides information on ATIG-sponsored events at the AAA Annual Meeting, film listings and teaching materials, and photo galleries from our meetings and other events.  We encourage your participation; contact us with ideas or submissions.

The ATIG Facebook group and listserv is open to all interested scholars, regardless of ATIG membership.
