Department of Social Anthropology


The Cambridge University Social Anthropology Society (CUSAS) is run by undergraduate and postgraduate students in the Department. CUSAS is happy to announce a diverse and interesting programme for the academic year 2019/20. This year, we have a variety of seminar speakers with fascinating topics that cover the full range of our discipline. We are holding several Brown Bag Lunches, an excellent opportunity to have engaging conversations with Cambridge social anthropologists in an informal setting, as well as a film screening with a discussion with one of the co-directors afterwards. Michaelmas term ends with the traditional holiday party and in Easter term, we will hold the annual Strathern Lecture with a renowned speaker and end the year with our garden party.

The CUSAS committee invites students and staff from across the department and further afield to take part in our events. We also always appreciate suggestions and ideas from students for future events. We explicitly encourage undergraduate participation as CUSAS is a space for everybody interested in social anthropology regardless of their degree or age. Keep an eye out for our term cards and event announcements (on this website, in department newsletters, on the notice board or on
