Dori Tunstall helps establish Design & Anthropology special interest group within the National Association for the Practice of Anthropology (NAPA). Approved by the NAPA executive council last week, the Design & Anthropology Interest Group (D&A IG)'s mission is to increase the perceived value of the design and anthropological theories, methodologies, and artifacts to global business, government, and society. Under the institutional structure of the NAPA, the group will attempt to develop cross-institutional collaborations with the professional design associations and "design" related divisions within the American Anthropological Association (ex. visual anthropology, contemporary archaeology, and museum studies) to amplify the message of Design & Anthropology's value.
