Workshop: Teaching and Learning Anthropology Outside the University

Are you interested in teaching anthropology outside the university? Would you like to develop projects that educate and inspire?

Would you like to:

  • discover how anthropology is taught and learned outside universities in other countries?
  • get ideas for creating resources, qualifications or events about anthropology for young people?
  • kickstart an educational project in your community, tailoring it to the local context?
  • connect with others working in this field and foster connections between anthropologists and local schools?

The workshop welcomes experienced educators and those with an interest in anthropology in education.
