About the association:

The Norwegian Anthropological Association (NAF) was founded in 1980 and is a membership organization for anthropologists, master's students in anthropology and others with higher education who work in anthropological fields. The association works actively to create the widest possible network between anthropologists in different professional groups, both within and outside the university and college environments. NAF is not a trade union, but contributes to professional exchange. The association organizes conferences every two years, publishes the professional journal Norwegian anthropological journal and manages the website.
