September AN features three In Focus commentary series focusing on anthropology education, with PDFs of series articles available on the AAA website. Series include:

Student Experiences: Commentaries on the variety of educational opportunities now available to anthropology students who seek interdisciplinary or applied training and experiences outside of the traditional. Featuring: Jennifer Cardew, Robert Chidester, Graça Índias Cordeiro, Alexandra Crampton, Jason E Miller and Puneet Chawla Sahota.
  2. Educational Partnerships: As anthropology students, educators and partner groups pursue university-community partnership initiatives, they increasingly recognize the benefits, risks and challenges these opportunities provide. Featuring: Brian J Burke, Ben McMahan, Gigi Owen, Jennifer Coffman, Marc K Hébert, Nila Ginger Hofman, Howard Rosing and Julia Offen
  3. Work-Life Balance: An ongoing series, introduced this month, that addresses the challenges of maintaining a comfortable work-life balance, as well as strategies developed to meet those challenges. Featuring: Gabriel Asselin, Christopher Dana Lynn. AN welcomes proposals for future articles on this topic.
The September issue also features a photo essay by Meg Gaillard, with online photo gallery, as well as additional content that will be available online soon through AnthroSource.
