“Brown Bags” are a series of talks organized by a Society for Anthropology Students committee with the goal of creating a forum for department members to learn about one another’s work, and to provide professional development for graduate students, faculty, and friends of the department in need of an informal space to share ideas, new research, or work through relevant problems. “Brown Bags” get their name from the eponymous lunch container, as attendees are invited to eat lunch during the talks, but expected to provide their own.

All presentations are BYOL (bring your own lunch).  If you are interested in presenting, or in holding a group discussion on a specific topic, just email Lucia Stavig or Rachel Wilbur with your topic and the date you would prefer.  Brown Bags are held in Alumni 313A Alumni unless otherwise noted.
