The under representation of Latinx anthropologists have raised a number of questions about the importance of equity, inclusion, and representation in the field of Anthropology. This roundtable brings together members of the Association of Latina and Latino Anthropologists to discuss the relevance of Anthropology in Latinx communities. Participants will discuss what motivated them to choose anthropology as a field of study and how they have applied theories and methods to their contemporary research efforts. We will reflect on strategies and efforts to recruit more Latinx anthropologists moving forward and ways in which we can decolonize Anthropology to make the field of more interest and relevance to future generations of Latinx scholars.
