Abstract:Since a few years, anthropologists in South Africa have increasingly expressed their concern about the state and status of anthropology in the country. The present article considers the state of anthropology in South Africa on the basis of information elicited from anthropologists at universities and in the public sector in 2001. The data concern departments and students, teaching themes and topics, perceptions of practitioners and problems identified, initiatives that should be taken and the direction in which anthropology should be moving.
