Anthropology is for everyone!

AnthroCircle is a registered student organization at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. We aim to promote anthropology as an integrative scientific and humanistic discipline and, more generally, as an engaged, inclusive approach to critical thought and action. Our initiatives include weekly study groups, one-time events such as public lectures, field trips, round-table discussions, and socials, as well as ongoing programs such as the Craft Series and the Neil Whitehead Colloquium Series. AnthroCircle also arranges fundraisers and the annual World Anthropology Day event to celebrate our discipline alongside other campuses around the world; past World Anthropology Days have included special film screenings and public lectures by invited speakers.

Additionally, we are eager to help our members participate in and provide access to the frontiers of research in our discipline through through opportunities to attend annual national conferences sponsored by the American Anthropological Association, the American Association of Physical Anthropologists, and the Society for American Archaeology. Our community benefits from our events and programs by providing learning opportunities, fostering mentorships and collegiate relationships, and access to new information within our ever-changing and dynamic field.
