Culture—and basic questions concerning what it means to be human—defines many of the practical issues we’re faced with daily. We’re excited to have you join this conversation.
Anthropologists attempt to understand the complexities of social and cultural life in local and global contexts, past and present. Traditionally, long-term ethnographic and archaeological fieldwork in other societies has been the hallmark of the anthropological study of the human condition, but anthropologists are also cultural critics considering a vast range of issues in their own societies as well. The anthropological perspective makes significant contributions to fields as diverse as health, education, international development, religion, policy, urban studies, indigenous studies, economics and politics.

Blackfoot Women’s Empowerment project highlights community and collaboration
When Tanya Pace-Crosschild (BSc ’98), director of the Opokaa’sin Early Intervention Society, saw a call for proposals from Women and Gender Equality Canada in 2018, she immediately recognized an opportunity to develop a project to foster the economic empowerment of Indigenous women in southern Alberta.
Our club room is located in A863. This is also home to our Resource Centre, which is a great place to find books, journals and articles on various anthropological subjects. It is a great place to study, meet with other students or just hang out. The office is generally open from 8:30 am- 4:30pm, so feel free to stop by anytime!
