Where are we going? Reflections on the future of human beings and the anthropological disciplines

The annual Royal Anthropological Institute (RAI) Student Conference returns for 2018 at the University of Bristol.

We will have presentations of work by students from institutions all over the UK, offering future-focussed anthropological perspectives on a wide range of subjects including politics, identity, health, business, science, technology, education, music, popular culture, non-human animals and more.

Keynote by Professor Graeme Were, University of Bristol:
Things to Come: Museums, Virtuality, and Digital Return in northern New Ireland, Papua New Guinea

To attend, please register before 18:00 24 August. Buffet lunch with vegetarian/vegan/gluten-free options will be provided; if you have any other dietary requirements, please email

Please note this conference is now a 2-day event, rather than a 1-day event as previously advertised.
