This volume presents the stories of 11 women anthropologists whose career paths have successfully navigated the terrain of practice. Two central themes that run across the life histories of these authors are an integrated scholar–practitioner identity and the role of improvisation and creativity in the development of their career trajectories. The personal career histories of the anthropologists presented here highlight the contributions and concerns of women practitioners from the perspective of feminist anthropology. Current and future anthropologists, both women and men, will benefit from reading their stories. Students in applied anthropology programs and others considering careers in practice will find within this issue of theNAPA Bulletin information about possible career trajectories and windows into the mysterious, complex, and entrepreneurial world of practice.
