National Anthropology Day is a day for anthropologists to celebrate and participate in their discipline with the public around them. The American Anthropological Association is celebrating anthropology and anthropologists across the world through the declaration of National Anthropology Day.
Anthropologists are innovators and creative thinkers who contribute to every sector of society. Help us celebrate what anthropology is and what it can achieve by hosting an event in your community, on your campus or in your workplace.
Anthropologists will be involved all across the globe sharing their work with their communities. Events on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., will inspire the public about the significant role that anthropology plays for us all. Activities on campuses nationwide will build enthusiasm and awareness for current and future anthropologists.
More than 60 campuses worldwide are participating by hosting activities throughout the day.
