The Anthropology of Tourism Interest Group (ATIG) is a network for anthropologists and other social scientists whose research involves tourism- and travel-related phenomena.
We are organized under the auspices of the American Anthropological Association (AAA); membership in the AAA is required for full membership in ATIG. If you are already a member of the AAA, all that's necessary is to fill out our online membership form and also add ATIG to your AAA membership profile (this can be done easily on the AAA website; just log in to your member record and click "Add Interest Group" on the left). Your status as Full/Affiliate will automatically be set when you indicate whether you are a currently a member of the AAA. There are no membership dues for ATIG.
For those who are not members of the AAA, we welcome you as an affiliate member – just click here. To join the AAA, visit http://www.aaanet.org.
The ATIG has both a dedicated listserv and a Facebook Group, where members and friends share information, announcements and messages. Please join us on both!
