Anthropology Day

Registration for 2021 Anthropology Day opens in December 2020.

What is Anthropology Day?

Anthropology Day is day for anthropologists to celebrate our discipline while sharing it with the world around us. Help us celebrate what anthropology is and what it can achieve by hosting an event in your community, on your campus, or in your workplace.

The next Anthropology Day is scheduled for Thursday, February 18, 2021. Registration for the 2021 Anthropology Day will open in December 2020.

Plan your event!

The primary goal of Anthropology Day is to share the wonders of anthropology with the world around us. For that reason, we strongly encourage groups to plan events that engage the community outside of their own department or club. The Anthropology Day resources page include some great information to help organize those kinds of events. We have programming tips for campus groups, museums, workplaces, and K-12 teachers.
