The Anthroehampton blog is run by the Centre for Research in Evolutionary, Social and Inter-Disciplinary Anthropology (CRESIDA) at the University of Roehampton. The Centre covers a diverse range of topics, including health and well-being, human-animal relations, tourism, human ecology, human evolution, primate morphology and behaviour. In addition to work situated within evolutionary or social anthropology and at the interface of these sub-fields, our research transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries – bringing new anthropological approaches and thinking to areas such as public health, wildlife conservation, astrobiology, linguistics and psychiatry. Our work has significant impacts within and outside academia, and we are committed to ensuring that the benefits of our research are realised in the wider world. It is for this reason that we have set up Anthroehampton – as a channel to communicate our work and ideas directly to the public and a means of stimulating dialogue, discussion and debate.

If you’re interested in completing an undergraduate degree with us, you can find out more about our anthropology programme here; we also accept applications from postgraduate students and have various funded opportunities available.
