The Society for the Anthropology of Europe (SAE) was first conceived in 1986 and its first elections as a section of the American Anthropological Association (AAA) were held in the Fall of 1987. The purposes of the organization, as announced in the organizing letter that went out to colleagues in 1986, were:
- Strengthening national and international networks between colleagues.
- Providing forums for discussion and debate
- Encouraging comparative research
- Enhancing the visibility and legitimacy of Europeanist anthropology, both within the discipline and among other Europeanist groups
- Facilitating dissemination of information about employment opportunities, grants, visiting European scholars, and other resources
- Promoting the professional integration of students specializing in Europe.
The American Anthropological Association (AAA), the primary professional society of anthropologists in the United States since its founding in 1902, is the world's largest professional organization of individuals interested in anthropology.
