Symposia and Seminars

Wenner-Gren Symposia and Seminars bring together small groups of invited scholars to address urgent problems within and beyond anthropology.

Scroll down

Symposia include scholars who might not otherwise be in conversation. Coming from separate disciplines and different specialties within anthropology, they are able to work together and break new ground.

Seminars foster intergenerational engagement. These gatherings welcome accomplished junior and senior anthropologists who are working to transform the discipline or change the debate on emerging research questions or themes.

If you would like to propose a seminar or symposium, please contact Donna Auston (dauston@wennergren.org).

Publications

Articles and essays resulting from Wenner-Gren Symposia are published in open-access special issues of Current Anthropology.
