We create the opportunity and maintain the offer that our alumnae and alumni can regularly meet and exchange with each other, as well as with current students and teachers at the Institute of Social Anthropology.

The AlumniAnthropology group was founded in 2018 and regularly organizes events for its members. At these events, we bring together alumni and alumnae, students and staff of the Institute of Social Anthropology at the University of Basel and promote the exchange of knowledge, experience and information (for example through lectures or excursions) among each other.

The weekly colloquium "Anthropological Crossroads", in which ongoing research projects are discussed during the semester at the Ethnological Seminar, is also open to alumni at any time.

Become a member!

As a member of AlumniAnthropology you automatically become a member of the umbrella organization "AlumniBasel". Membership costs 60 Swiss francs per year.

Please also inform former fellow students about AlumniAnthropology.
