Applied Anthropology Expo

Welcome to the 2021 6th Annual Applied Anthropology Expo

March 11, 2021

We have 2 virtual events this year:

2:00 - 5:00 pm

Poster Session

self-guided poster session and live Q&A sessions with the presenters.

6:00 - 7:30 pm

Careers Panel

a live Careers Panel (via Zoom) featuring 6 UNT anthropology alumnae.

Poster Session:

Meet UNT alumni anthropologists and explore multiple areas of applied work. You can explore the posters at your own pace by reading the posters and watching a video of each anthropologist discussing their poster. In addition, each presenter has a 45-minute Q&A/discussion via Zoom where you can pop in and out to ask questions and casually chat about their jobs and careers. The poster Q&A sessions are staggered every 15 minutes so you can attend all 10 sessions if you wish.
