Theme: Building Community Engagement and Social Equity in a Changing World

How do communities and professionals engage each other in issues of global social equity? What are the benefits and challenges of conducting applied research inside and outside the boundaries of academia? Join us as we expand the horizons of anthropological method, theory, study, and practice. We invite graduate and undergraduate students in anthropology, the social sciences, and related fields to contribute to this multidisciplinary student-run conference.
