To facilitate communication about C.O.D. events, and to gain greater input from the AAPA community, the committee hosts several listservs on the AAPA server as well as a facebook page.

The COD facebook page is administered by Kerry Dore and can be found at

The main COD listserv aims to facilitate discussion on topics of diversity within physical anthropology, to build connections and mentoring relationships among physical anthropologists from underrepresented groups as well as those members interested in diversity in the field, and to provide a forum for all members of the AAPA interested in such discussions.  The list is administered by Susan Antón and Phoebe Stubblefield. Any AAPA member may join the list at by following the instructions at:

The COD Women's Initiative (WIN) listserv aims to facilitate discussion and dissemination of information on gender equity in STEM sciences.  Any AAPA member may join the COD_WIN list at

The COD LGBTQQIAA listserv aims to facilitate discussion and dissemination of information on issues of concern to physical anthropologists in the LGBTQ community and allies.  We *think* that people should be able to join the list mostly anonymously, as long as they do not post to it but only read posts. Stephanie Meredith and Susan Antón, the list administrators, and Ed Hagen, the web administrator, can see list subscribers, but other list members should not be able to.  We are unsure whether webfaction or other folks can see these. Any AAPA member may join the COD_LGBTQQIAA list by following instructions at

The COD Anthropologists outside of Anthropology Departments, Contingent and Teaching focussed faculty (AACT) listserv aims to foster effective teaching practice, focus on the special challenges inherent to being anthropologists in non-anthro departments and address the issues and concerns of contingent faculty.   Any AAPA member may join the COD_AACT list by following the instructions at
