Anthroview has been a project under works for a few years now with the aim of creating a resource for those interested in and studying anthropology to share their thoughts and areas of interest, and to educate themselves on new topics. The ethos of Anthroview will reflect the students, alumni, lecturers and anthropology enthusiasts at the University of Kent on a student-curated platform.
You can expect to see content relating to anthropology in all aspects. This includes articles by students, alumni and academic staff from the School of Anthropology and Conservation. The aim is to provide information on the latest research, events and happenings in student life, as well as what is occurring in the lives of staff and researchers. Student testimonials and interviews will guide and shape your time at University, alongside making you aware of career prospects and opportunities! The best part is, the Anthropology Society is calling on you to get involved! Through articles, stories, photographs, accounts of your experience at University and your love of anthropology: all ideas are welcome!
Already, Anthroview has had content from students, alumni and lecturers! Helpful tips on making those big decisions on whether or not to go on a Year Abroad or an interesting read from an alumni’s current research, not to mention full coverage of the many events held at the School of Anthropology and Conservation.
The Anthropology Society is an academic society that works to enrich the student experience at Kent particularly for students within the School of Anthropology and Conservation. It is run both by students and for students to foster enthusiasm for anthropology. Whether the society is hosting guest speakers, running diverse and inclusive socials, taking members on International trips or providing opportunities through events or sign-posting, the society has one specific aim: to leave you with a healthy love for the subject.
Replicating the true sense of community at the School of Anthropology and Conservation on a virtual platform is a goal of the Anthropology Society, especially in light of the current global pandemic: this will be achieved through collaboration with members of the School and yourselves! The Anthropology Society is at the centre of providing enthusiasm for the subject at Kent.
The content of the website is entirely up to you! While the committee might set certain themes or choose some topics as a starting point, the floor is completely yours to discuss what you find interesting or important in anthropology. This is a great chance to practice writing about anthropology for the future or to enhance your university experience.

A word from the Anthropology Society
“I might be biased, but studying anthropology at the University of Kent really has its moments. While the transition to University life can be smooth or fraught with challenges, the Anthropology Society (AnthSoc) has, in my experience, always provided escapism (trips abroad) when it’s needed and academic motivation when that one module really makes you warm up to the idea of pursuing the life of a vagabond. Our society is ever-welcoming and might just be the place you make friends for life. We, the committee, are looking forward to meeting you here at Kent in Autumn.”
— Carl Grevel, President
“University is truly what you make it: what you put in, you get out. It will challenge, shape, inspire you and leave you with some of the greatest memories of your life. Your time at the University of Kent will provide you with academic wealth and a safe but challenging environment to grow and achieve great successes! You will meet some of your greatest friends here and get the opportunity to find out who you are. The University of Kent promises a rich cultural experience where no one feels left out. Students come from all over the world with the same goal in mind: to have an amazing time at University! We look forward to seeing you at the School of Anthropology and Conservation, where you will get the opportunity to become a part of our wonderful community! See you soon.”
