About CAR

Welcome to our website!

The Council on Anthropology and Reproduction (CAR) was founded in 1979.  Our mission is to build strong and active networks among scholars, practitioners, researchers, teachers, trainers, activists, and policy makers interested in the anthropology of reproduction in its many permutations.  Our members come from countries across the globe and  professions at the center of anthropology and well beyond.  CAR facilitates networking through its facebook page, twitter, listserv, biannual newsletter, membership directory, and special events at the American Anthropological Association annual meetings as well as meetings of the Society for Medical Anthropology and the Society for Applied Anthropology.
