Social Anthropology Society encourages all those with an interest in any aspect of anthropology to come together, exchange ideas and knowledge, and promote the discipline outside of the classroom. 

We are an academic society at the University of Edinburgh that organises events (socials, lectures, gatherings, that sorta thing), provides essay support, and authors the Anthropozine, a society blog that features articles and op-ed pieces from our students, staff members, and other contributors. 

In addition to this, the society works closely with the University Social Anthropology Department in creating a brand new in-house journal - written by students and edited by a team from the Social Anthropology Society. We have so much going on this year, so whether you're an anthropology student or not, feel free to get in touch or come along and meet lots of like-minded people!
