The series is designed to stimulate conversation and debate in a friendly environment. They are an excellent opportunity to learn about groundbreaking anthropological research, to meet and interact with scholars, and get inspired by what others are doing. Our Colloquia Series takes place in Gambrell Hall, Room 412 at 3:30pm, unless otherwise noted. All events are open to the public and include light refreshments.
