What does it mean to be human? How do people from across the globe understand the world around them? Why do people do what they do? What makes people so different from each other, and can we find similarities?
Attend our Anthropology Taster Day to find out answers to these questions and more at Brunel University London.
This one-day event will offer a series of interactive mini-lectures which draw directly from the experiences of Brunel Anthropologists, who between them conduct research in every continent on earth. You will also hear from our very own students about what it’s like to study Anthropology at Brunel—and why you should choose it too!
Workshop topics include:
- Learning to play the game: how migrants become 'legal' in Italy’
- Being a man: gender, sex and pink finger nails in South India and beyond
- How to get angry in the Arctic: anthropological perspectives on emotion
- Are gods, spirits and ancestors just different kinds of persons?
- Plane crash! An anthropology of airline disaster and the nature of the modern world
- Haunted Houses in the South African Lowveld
- A road to the end of the world: infrastructure and anthropology in a climate emergency
The day will run from 9.30 to 14.00. We can provide transport for our Widening Access schools and a free lunch is available for attendees. Book here.
