The Anthropology Working Papers have moved online. Unfortunately we have been required to update our security settings to reduce the chances of 'Zoom Bombing.' If you would like to attend this seminar please email for access information.

The Working Papers in Anthropology seminar series provides a forum for dissemination of anthropological research and ideas among UQ scholars and invited researchers. All students are invited to attend the series and postgraduate students, from honours upwards, are invited to present their research. The aim is to provide opportunities for students, staff and those from outside UQ, to present and discuss their work in an informal environment.
