The Collaborative Anthropology Research Group at the University of St Andrews is made up of staff and doctoral students working to incorporate elements of collaboration into their research projects. Some of us have been engaged in collaborative work for several years, others are beginning to think about the possibilities, challenges and limits of collaboration.

We take collaboration to be the process through which informants and anthropologist share in the design, implementation and dissemination of research. Collaboration is currently emerging strongly as a transformative drive in anthropology, mirroring developments in other disciplines.
