Anthrofest

Overview

Anthrofest is the Penn Anthropology undergraduate research conference, held annually in the spring. This event brings together undergraduates involved in research across all concentrations in anthropology with faculty and other students. For participants, Anthrofest is an excellent way to share independent research with the Penn community while gaining professional experience preparing and delivering a research presentation.

Students will be provided with additional details and guidance from the undergraduate coordinator and undergraduate chair after being selected to present.

Anthropology majors who accepted an Anthropology Department Undergraduate Research Award during the previous academic year are required to present at Anthrofest.
