Society for the Anthropology of Consciousness

The Society for the Anthropology of Consciousness (SAC) is an interdisciplinary academic organization dedicated to the study of consciousness phenomena in cultures around the world. A section of the American Anthropological Association (AAA), SAC members utilize cross-cultural, experimental, experiential, and theoretical approaches to study consciousness.


SAC publishes a journal, Anthropology of Consciousness, holds an annual Spring Meeting, and sponsors sessions at other meetings, such as those of the American Anthropological Association (AAA). Through this site, SAC hopes to further scholarly exchanges between anthropologists and persons in other disciplines within consciousness studies.
