Anthropology is for everyone!

AnthroCircle is a registered student organization at UW–Madison. We promote anthropology as an integrative and interdisciplinary study of humans and non-human primates. Our initiatives and promoted events include weekly meetings, on- and off-campus lectures, field trips and backstage museum tours, and programs such as Anthro Department Brown Bag Lecture Series. We also host annual fundraisers and participate in a variety of local outreach events.

Additionally, we are eager to help our members participate in research, internships, and professional development activities within the subfields of Anthropology. We collect a list of anthropology-related internships in Madison and across the world as well as information on summer field schools in all subfields and links to funding and grant application resources. If you have questions about these or other relevant opportunities can email us at anthrocircle@rso.wisc.edu or reach out to any of the officers in person!
