By its most simple definition, anthropology is the study of humans. Anthropological research incorporates everything from earliest human ancestors to present-day pop culture, and seeks a better understanding of people through the objects, places, relationships, and ideas that we produce.
Got Anthropology? is a speaker series developed to bring anthropology to a wider audience. Each event is intended to present a Big Question, as well as the many smaller questions that anthropologists use to better understand humans and societies. These larger concepts and questions are presented by a diverse lineup of graduate students, who draw on their own research and experiences to make complicated topics more accessible to the Toronto community. Our goal is to stimulate conversation and debate through great ideas, while breaking down barriers between academia and the public by providing a friendly atmosphere for communication.
