What is public anthropology? It can be framed in many ways but a concise definition comes from Haugerud:

"Here I take the term public anthropology to encompass knowledge production by professional anthropologists that is intended to reach beyond disciplinary specialists, and usually beyond the academy, in ways that differ from engaged, applied, or practicing anthropology"
