Spring 2017 Meeting Time: Fridays 5:00 PM in BLB060

We are a group of students at the University of North Texas in Denton. We focus on educating ourselves and others about the four fields of anthropology, and how they are relevant to our daily lives.
We spend our time giving back to our community (on and off campus), holding events for fellow students, and exploring new ways to have fun.

If you're at UNT, feel free to come hangout! All Anthro majors, minors, and enthusiasts are welcome. :)
Feel free to email us with any comments or questions - anthropeopleunt@gmail.com

Meet An Anthropologist

Hello hello hello!

Tomorrow is ASA's first event, Meet An Anthropologist!
One of our very own anthropology professors, Dr. Doug Henry, will be talking to us about his work as an anthropologist! It should be a very informative and inspirational session, especially for those ANTH majors unsure of what to do after graduation!

Come join us on September 19th (tomorrow) in LANG 201 at 5:30pm! 

Members, don't forget: dues are due next month!

See y'all tomorrow!

Workshop with Dr. Michael Wesch

Hey everyone!

The ANTH department has been invited to participate in a workshop held by Michael Wesch.

Here's a little bio blurb:

Dubbed "the explainer" by Wired magazine, Michael Wesch is a cultural anthropologist exploring the effects of new media on society and culture. After two years studying the implications of writing on a remote indigenous culture in the rain forest of Papua New Guinea, he has turned his attention to the effects of social media and digital technology on global society.  His videos on culture, technology, education, and information have been viewed by millions, translated in over 15 languages, and are frequently featured at international film festivals and major academic conferences worldwide. Wesch has won several major awards for his work, including a Wired Magazine Rave Award, the John Culkin Award for Outstanding Praxis in Media Ecology, and he was recently named an Emerging Explorer by National Geographic.  He has also won several teaching awards, including the 2008 CASE/Carnegie U.S. Professor of the Year for Doctoral and Research Universities.

You might know him from this video! 


The workshop is called "8x10 with Dr. Michael Wesch: Framing Big Ideas for Teaching". The goal is to allow many different voices in an academic area share their best ideas about teaching and learning, and how the education experience at UNT can be improved. 

It's happening Monday, September 23rd, 9:30am-11:00am, and you'll be treated to lunch afterwards.

Let Lisa Henry (Lisa.Henry@UNT.EDU) know ASAP if you're interested, because there are ONLY EIGHT (8) SPOTS OPEN.

I hope some students take advantage of meeting this awesome guy!
