Anthropology Taster Day

This exciting event is an excellent opportunity for Year 12, 13 and FE students to learn what Anthropology is all about, and to experience what it’s like to study this subject at University.

Organized jointly by the Division of Anthropology at Brunel University London and Bentley Wood High School, Stanmore, and supported by the Royal Anthropological Institute (RAI), it will revolve around a series of interactive mini-lectures and ethnographic films. These will draw directly from the real life fieldwork experiences of Brunel Anthropologists.

Workshop topics include:

• Can animals be persons? Anthropological approaches to human-animal relations
• Being a man: gender, sex and pink finger nails in South India and beyond
• Cool guys and cannibal ogres: the meaning of eating excrement on Panapompom
• Anthropology and the Marikana massacre in South Africa
