The Australian Anthropological Society presents Anthropology Day 2018

Australia’s inaugural Anthropology Day will be on Thursday, 13 September 2018

Organised by The Australian Anthropological Society, Anthropology Day is part of Social Sciences Week , which aims to deepen public awareness of the social sciences in Australia.

Local Events

Anthropology departments from universities around Australia are taking part in Anthropology Day, with simultaneous events being held in Melbourne, Perth, Sydney and Brisbane.

These events are free for Year 12 and FE students, and for teachers, careers advisers, and parents.

The Day will give students the chance to gain hands-on experience of what it is like to study anthropology at university. Each location will offer a range of activities or workshops, and students will be able to explore career paths in anthropology, compare undergraduate courses at all the university stalls, gain tips on university admission, and interact with students who are currently studying anthropology.
