Welcome to the Society for Psychological Anthropology home page. The Society for Psychological Anthropology (SPA) of the American Anthropological Association was founded in 1977. SPA is a broad, multidisciplinary organization of individuals interested in cultural, psychological, and social interrelations at all levels.

Membership in the Society for Psychological Anthropology (SPA) is managed through the American Anthropological Association (AAA). The dues for AAA are prorated from a $70 student rate to a $290 rate for the highest income professionals. AAA members can join the SPA here. SPA membership comes with a subscription to its flagship journal Ethos and qualifies student members for participation in faculty-student workshops at the SPA biennial and AAA annual meetings.
