As part of the 50-year anniversary of anthropology at Victoria University of Wellington (VUW), the graduate students are hosting a symposium focused on the past, the present, and the possible future(s) that are opened up in/by the study of anthropology.
The Symposium will be held on:
Friday 12 May 2017
Hunter Council Chambers
Victoria University of Wellington
Drawing inspiration from current and former students of anthropology at VUW and across Aotearoa New Zealand, this symposium will lead to generative discussions on contemporary world events and anthropology’s role (and ability) to actively engage with diverse publics by way of research and advocacy. As graduate students, the aim is to collectively generate useful approaches to anthropological thought and action in the everyday.
