Very sadly, because of the current coronavirus pandemic we have had to take the decision to cancel LAD2020 (which was scheduled to take place on Fri 19th June 2020). It was clear that the event could not go on as we planned; we would not want to risk the health of our participants with such a large gathering.

London Anthropology Day consists of an introduction to anthropology (both biological and social), a range of interactive workshops run by anthropology lecturers, and presentations on university admissions and careers. All participating universities have representatives and information stalls at the event. In addition, there will be a range of exhibitions and information displays. Drinks and snacks are provided but participants need to bring a packed lunch.

If you would like to receive printed posters and postcards to advertise the event in your school, please email education@therai.org.uk with your name and your postal address.

To see what the day is like and find out more about anthropology, take a look at our LAD Gallery .Photographs of RAI education outreach activities are also available on our Flickr page: www.flickr.com/photos/raieducation

For A-level, FE, and lifelong learning students

The London Anthropology Day is an opportunity for Year 12, 13, FE and lifelong learning students to learn about anthropology and get a taste of the diversity of sub-disciplines and degree programmes offered. You will meet current students and lecturers from many anthropology departments and get a chance to experience first-hand what it is like to study anthropology at university.

For Careers Advisors and AimHigher Co-ordinators

Places are reserved for careers advisors and AimHigher Co-ordinators in order to sustain the widening participation aims of the day.

For Teachers

The London Anthropology Day provides a valuable opportunity for teachers interested in developing anthropology within the National Curriculum to meet, discuss ideas and find out more about the Anthropology A-level and anthropology within the International Baccalaureate. If you are interested in anthropology at the pre-university level, contact the Royal Anthropological Institute’s Education and Communications Officer, Emma Ford at education@therai.org.uk to join our teachers’ network and get regular updates on activities, events and resources.
