Anthropology Section

Since 1877, the Anthropology Section of The New York Academy of Sciences has served as a meeting place for scholars in the Greater New York area. The section strives to be a progressive voice within the anthropological community and to contribute innovative perspectives on the human condition nationally and internationally.

The Academy has a long history of serving as a forum for public discussion and debate about what it means to be human. Today, with funding from the Wenner-Gren Foundation, and sponsorship from Berghahn Books, the Anthropology Section hosts free monthly programming that engages scholars, students and a broader public in the exploration of a topical theme. A volunteer advisory board of New York-area anthropologists plans each year’s events: lecture series, workshops and conferences. These events focus on contemporary issues and debates about humans and the societies in which they live. See upcoming events here.
