Abstract

Jean Cole Spencer was an anthropologist, occupational therapist and occupational scientist in the Department of Occupational Therapy at Texas Women’s University. Her evolution spanned 30 years of scholarly contributions and forged important interdisciplinary linkages. These linkages and possible tensions between occupational therapy, occupational science and anthropology will be explored as evidenced in her writing and research. The broader challenges and benefits of bringing anthropology and occupational therapy together professionally and their possible effects on the emerging discipline of occupational science will also be examined.
