Anthropology Club

The Anthropology Club brings together students interested in the four-fields of anthropology (both as majors and non-majors) in order to engage with the core concerns of discipline in settings beyond the classroom.  The Club is open to everyone and we encourage people to join us who are interested in all things human, from our origins as a species (biological), to our cultural development (archaeology), to how we live in present communities (cultural), to how we communicate (linguistics).

Join others with similar interests for comradeship and even, occasionally, pizza!  A great way to connect with like-minded students and share a learning experience–exciting, and just fun.

Activities of the Club include:

  • Field trips
  • The Works in Progress Series
  • Invited speakers
  • Conferences
  • Book and bake sales
  • Movie screenings

  • Hospitality and Care towards the (Un)knowable Stranger in Greek Orthodox Charities
    The air was thick with the smell of rosemary as chickpeas boiled behind me on an aging industrial-sized stove. Multiple long tables sat empty in the front of the room except for a scattering of coffee cups, abandoned once the thick sludge at the bottom was all that remained. Icons, at varying levels of completion, […]

  • Call for Pitches: Care
    Anthropology News invites submissions on the forms of care that permeate human and nonhuman worlds. How do we care for ourselves and others? How do we care for objects, archives, words, history, traditions, animals, plants, ideas, and obligations? How can care be a form of resistance or persistence amid violence or change? How do forms […]
  • Unraveling Silences, Reimagining Intimacy
    This short piece is based on Hazal Aydın’s Middle East Section 2023 Best Graduate Paper Prize-winning essay drawing on her MA thesis. Thinking about gray areas when it comes to discussing sexual harassment and silence is always tricky and uncomfortable. We tend to think that dwelling in grayness weakens our feminist anger and struggles, especially […]
  • David Cliff Grove
    1935-2023 David C. Grove, Jubilee Professor of Anthropology Emeritus at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and Courtesy Professor of Anthropology at the University of Florida, passed away on May 24, 2023, at the age of 87 after a long illness. His career trajectory focused on the archaeology of complex societies in central Mexico c. 1000–500 […]
  • The Demystification of AI: An Industry Perspective
    An anthropologist and a psychologist walk into a bank and decide to study Artificial Intelligence (AI). It sounds like the start of a joke—except, instead of a punchline, the result is a year’s worth of insights and the story of how we created a whole new industry research program to get them. At this point […]
  • Transforming Data into Human Stories: Machine-Learning-Based Models to Estimate Age-at-Death of Undocumented Migrants
    In 2023, we witnessed a tragic surge in migrant deaths along migratory routes worldwide, marking it as one of the deadliest years on record according to the statistics from the Missing Migrant Project, with an estimated more than 8,000 cases. However, this figure probably underestimates the true magnitude of the problem, since many disappearances are not […]
  • AI for Learning: Experiments from Three Anthropology Classrooms
    How have you encountered AI today? Perhaps you listened to music recommended by an AI algorithm, used a navigational app to check AI-predicted traffic conditions, auto-captioned videos with AI-powered voice recognition, or checked email without even noticing the AI-filtered spam messages.  AI is shaping our everyday lives, but as anthropology teaching faculty, most of our recent AI-related […]
  • Digit-al Symptoms
    When AI-generated images began to flood the internet in autumn 2022, one issue became apparent: the AIs couldn’t get a handle on the finer details of human anatomy. The post Digit-al Symptoms appeared first on Anthropology News.
