Department of Social Anthropology


The Cambridge University Social Anthropology Society (CUSAS) is happy to announce a diverse and interesting programme for the academic year 2020/21. This year, we have a variety of seminar speakers with fascinating topics that cover the full range of our discipline. Despite the difficult circumstances we face in terms of social gatherings, we will carry on organising socials by moving them online. This includes online Coffee Mornings and Brown Bag Lunches, an excellent opportunity to have engaging conversations with Cambridge social anthropologists in an informal setting, as well as film screenings. If the situation allows, Michaelmas term will end with the traditional holiday party. 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 encourage participation from every member of the department 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 Facebook, or on our Twitter).

Questions may be directed to the committee: Amanda Daud, Saffron Jackson, Marina Mateo, Jedrek Koh Wei Ze, Will Baker, Susie Triffitt, Aisling Spencer Henihan and Morgan Davies-Walker under

Dr. Matei Candea acts as Senior Treasurer of CUSAS.
