WHAT IS THIS WEBSITE
This is the latest incarnation of the Open Anthropology Cooperative – OAC – and is focused around different ventures, which all have a specific focus and their own sub-site (Please see – here – for the overall focus of the OAC). This site is a portal to all these different ventures and any new ones that may emerge. For each OAC venture there are different but simple ways to participate. To get more details on the ways you can participate click – here.
However if you need some advice on how to technically go about participating then you are in the right place and can find the basics below. If you get stuck or need more specific help please email the administrator – firstname.lastname@example.org – with a description of how we might help.
