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.

Please send an email to our Events Coordinator, Isabelle Paulsen at if you have suggestions for more programs or events.

List of Programs

Weekly Study Group

AnthroCircle has study sessions scheduled every Wednesday from 6 to 7 p.m. in 2205 College Library. Swing by 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 The Vinery for glassblowing and Donghzu Pottery Studio for wheel thrown pottery.

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. If you have any suggestions for events, please let us know!

Neil Whitehead Colloquium Series

The Colloquium Series is a place for graduate students and other scholars can present their ideas and research and receive feedback from fellow students and faculty.

Field School and International Program Resources

We're in the process of compiling a list of opportunities for field schools and other international programs. Don't hesitate to let us know if about one!


Every semester, 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!
