will be held every other Tuesday evening at 6pm in Munroe
Hall room 103 (Conference Room). We will have faculty members and guest speakers come
in to discuss their research topics.
In between the bimonthly
meetings, there will be movie nights held every other Tuesday at 6:00pm
in the same room 103 of Munroe Hall. These movies may have
some relevance to any and all aspects of Anthropology. Refreshments
will be served these nights, which could include popcorn, snacks, and
drinks. Bring a blanket or a hoodie because the room we watch movies in
is freezing cold!
Tentative events for this Spring 2010 semester will be announced in our first meeting Wednesday 17 this February.
