World Applied Anthropology Congress

Anthropological Knowledge to Address Human Problems

University of Kansas (Lawrence, KS, USA)

Join us virtually or in-person!

Sponsored in part by the Wenner-Gren Foundation

The biennial World Applied Anthropology Congress 2023 aims to engage with contemporary issues through academic scholarship, applied practice, and intervention in the public sphere.  The Congress showcases compelling ways of how anthropological knowledge can address a wide range of human problems. The Congress aims to assemble anthropologists (and scholars of cognate disciplines) virtually or physically from throughout the world not only to show a range of anthropological applications in the present context, but also to create a better future.
