With a passion to work more collaboratively, Anthroprospective and the Centre for Native Title Anthropology are teaming up to host two engaging events this September during Social Science Week in Melbourne as a way of encouraging social science academics to engage in more authentic dialogue with the broader public. In doing so, we hope that we can create new avenues to promote the applicability and significance of social science to more mainstream audiences.

The first event will be held on Saturday September the 9th from 6pm to 9:30pm in Collingwood at ‘Collingwood House’. This social networking evening will comprise of two keynote speeches and an engaging Q&A panel centralised around the theme of ‘Ethics, Advocacy and Expertise; Anthropology in Australia’.

The second event will be held on Monday September the 11th from 8:30am to 4:30pm at Queens College, The University of Melbourne. In keeping with the theme of ‘Ethics, Advocacy and Expertise; Anthropology in Australia’, this all-day conference workshop which will provide attendees the opportunity to continue discussions from the previous Saturday night and to delve into a number of stimulating topics from a range of anthropologists.

We encourage you to share these events amongst your peers and colleagues and if you are associated with educational institutions, please encourage your students to join! It’s very important that we support initiatives such as these during a time where anthropology is under threat in Australia. There’s really never been such an important time as now to come together to promote our discipline to the general public and to share insights on how anthropology can contribute meaningfully to our changing society and to ask the big questions, such as ‘where is the discipline going?
