Founded in 1902, the American Anthropological Association (AAA) is the world's largest association for professional anthropologists, with more than 10,000 members from all four fields of anthropology: cultural anthropology, biological/physical anthropology, archaeology, and linguistic anthropology.
FAMSI (Foundation for Advancement of Mesoamerican Studies) was created in 1993 to foster increased understanding of ancient Mesoamerican cultures. The Foundation aims to assist and promote qualified scholars who might otherwise be unable to undertake or complete their programs of research and synthesis. Projects in the following disciplines are urged to apply: anthropology, archaeology, art history, epigraphy, ethnography, ethnohistory, linguistics, and related fields.
MesoWeb is devoted to the ancient cultures of Mexcio and adjacent Central America, including the Olmec, Zapotec, Mixtec, Teotihuacan, Toltec, Aztec, and Maya (reserving the word Mayan for the language and the word Maya for the people and their culture). They are also the creators of the websites of the Pre-Columbian Art Research Institute (PARI) and the Boundary End Archaeology Research Center (BEARC).
PARI is the "product of over 35 years of investigation and exploration of Mesoamerican civilizations..." Home to PARI Journal, Palenque Round Table proceedings, PARI monographs and other online publications.
