Becoming an APLA Member

The Association for Political and Legal Anthropology invites anyone interested in APLA activities to become an APLA member. APLA members receive PoLAR, published twice a year. The cost for individual APLA membership is $30.00, $15.00 for students; APLA members must also be AAA members. Non-members may subscribe to PoLAR for a fee. Membership and subscriptions are handled by the AAA and not by the APLA. Checks should be made out to The American Anthropological Association and sent (along with the applicant’s name, address, phone and/or fax, and e-mail address) to:

The American Anthropological Association
Membership Services
2300 Clarendon Blvd. Suite 1301
Arlington, VA 22201

(AAA members may also join APLA when they renew their AAA membership by checking the appropriate box.)

Questions about the American Anthropological Association, including information on how to become a member, can be obtained by…

Once You Have Become a Member… Join APLA-L, the APLA Electronic Mailing List!

We have established an electronic mailing list called APLA-L in order to provide timely information about APLA activities and related academic news. We invite all those who wish to receive announcements of our activities via e-mail to subscribe to this electronic mailing list. There is no charge, and subscribers can unsubscribe at any time. Mailings will be limited to two per week (or fewer), and the list will not be used for the exchange of messages among individuals subscribers.

APLA-L will be used to call for submissions to Political and Legal Anthropology Review (PoLAR) and to announce publication of its issues; to call for papers for APLA-sponsored AAA panels and to announce these panels as well as workshops and invited speakers; and to call for submissions to the annual APLA Student Paper Prize and to announce its winner.

It is our hope that in addition to faculty and graduate students who are themselves interested in APLA activities, department heads and administrative staff who may be able to forward information on APLA activities to interested colleagues and students will also subscribe to the APLA-L electronic mailing list.

To subscribe, please email Veronique Fortin at If possible, please attach to your email the receipt confirming your membership in APLA.

Subscribers will receive an introductory message confirming their subscription and giving directions on how to unsubscribe if desired.

Thank you for your interest. We look forward to keeping you informed of APLA activities!
