Welcome to The Anthropology of Corporations Interest Group

The Anthropology of Corporations Interest Group (ACIG) of the American Anthropological Association (AAA) was founded in 2013 to provide a forum for the growing anthropological interest in the role and influence of corporations in society.  It serves as an arena in which scholars in this field can develop ideas, share resources, network, and support public scholarship and activism.
