AnthroCircle strives to provide as many opportunities as possible to experience anthropology at UW–Madison and the greater Madison and Wisconsin communities. In addition to our weekly study sessions, you can find information about our various ongoing programs and series below.

A list of upcoming events can be found on our Event Calendar.

List of Programs

Weekly Study Group

During in-person semesters, AnthroCircle has study sessions once a week, using at College Library. A great way to get some studying done with your fellow anthropology nerds!

Craft Series

The AnthroCircle Craft Series seeks out local artisans and craftspeople and organizes trips to learn about the crafts they practice. In the past, we've visited places like The Vinery for glassblowing and a local artist for natural dying techniques!

One-Time Events

In addition to our Craft Series, we occasionally sponsor other one-time events, such as trips to places like the Field Museum in Chicago, panels on graduate school, and guest lectures.

Field School and International Program Resources

We've compiled a list of opportunities for field schools and other international programs in Wisconsin and across the world. Don't hesitate to let us know if you know about one!

When in-person, we hold a fundraiser to help us put on events. Our most popular fundraiser is, of course, selling Greenbush donuts in the lobby of the Social Sciences building. If you have any suggestions for fundraisers, let us know!
