Field School in Antigua, Guatemala will be entering its sixth season in Summer
2014, as a project of the National Association for the Practice of
Anthropology, a section of the American Anthropological Association.
Our vision is to facilitate transdisciplinary learning among students in occupational therapy,
anthropology, and related fields. The
goal of the field school is to promote social and occupational justice, which it enacts
through partnerships with NGOs (non-governmental organizations) in and around
Antigua, Guatemala. By providing integrative field work
opportunities within occupational therapy and anthropology, we believe that ideals of social and occupational justice can be
a set of concepts, theories, bodies of knowledge, and tools for implementation
as practitioners and researchers in real-world contexts.
