The Wenner-Gren Foundation has three major goals: to support significant and innovative anthropological research into humanity's biological and cultural origins, development, and variation; to foster the international community of research scholars in anthropology; and to provide leadership at the forefronts of the discipline.

dThis year our speaker series “Framing” highlights the multiple and contested processes of cultural construction, critique, and analysis that are part of the anthropological project. The first event will be September 26, 2016, when New York University's Faye Ginsburg and Ruben Rayna present “Making Accessible Futures: from ramps to #cripthevote”.
