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
