2016 Field School banquet

Anthropology Brown Bag Brunch Series

Starting in Fall 2017, the Anthropology department would like to celebrate the active research agendas of Anthropologists and Anthropology-related faculty around UNCW.  The Brown Bag Brunch series is an informal event, meant primarily for students and faculty at UNCW, although any interested person is welcome.  The talks will be informal, over brunch or refreshments, and will give students and faculty and opportunity to chat about research ideas.
