Welcome to the Cambridge University Social Anthropology Society

The Cambridge University Social Anthropology Society (CUSAS) is the student-led society of the Department of Social Anthropology. CUSAS aims to provide a forum for undergraduates and postgraduates of the University to discuss and debate anthropological issues. As a student-led society, we also function as a platform for students to organise events of interest to the society’s membership. As our membership includes both undergraduates and postgraduates, CUSAS also serves as a hub for different cohorts in the Department to come together, to discuss ideas and to meet socially.

CUSAS organises a weekly seminar series during term time, annual events including the Marilyn Strathern Lecture, as well as ad-hoc workshops, film screenings, brown bag lunches and coffee mornings as interest and need, arises (check out the Events section for more details). At least twice a year, alongside the Department we host end-of-term parties for staff and students of the Department of Social Anthropology.

CUSAS is supported by the Department of Social Anthropology


Location details and updates can be found on our social media, and are sent out through the Department’s weekly bulletin.
