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 find learning about human diversity across time and space fascinating.
Activities of the Club include:
- Field trips
- The Works in Progress Series
- Invited speakers
- Book and bake sales
- Movie screenings
