Speakers and presentations
Each year, the Department of Anthropology hosts speakers from both within and outside of the University.
All students are welcome to join these talks to learn about the work of anthropologists and individuals in related fields. For those of you who are graduate-school bound, there are annual workshops on topics such as how to select a graduate program or develop a curriculum vitae (the academic equivalent of a résumé), as well as panel discussions led by current graduate students. We periodically invite speakers who have a background in anthropology but who work in fields such as healthcare, education, social services and so on, to talk with students about their career trajectories and how anthropology contributes to what they do today. We encourage you to take advantage of these opportunities to help you envision your future.
The department also holds a "brown bag" series when faculty and students in the department discuss their current research. This is an excellent opportunity for students to get to know their peers and mentors, and to learn about ongoing research in the department. Undergraduates are welcome at all such department events.
