Anthropology Society

The Anthropology Society is a student-run club for undergraduate students who are interested in anything anthropology! We plan and host events throughout the year. We welcome those from all subfields of anthropology – archaeology, biological, linguistic, and sociocultural, or even those who are not in an anthropology module but are still interested in being a part of our club.

Meet your 2021/2022 Exec:

 Hi, I’m Jessie. I am going into fourth year at UWO. My major is in linguistics, and my goal is to apply to SLP programs for next year! I love all things linguistics and anthropology, but my favourite course so far has to be Anth 2245-Anthropological Approaches to Language.
