The Wenner-Gren Foundation is committed to playing a leadership role in anthropology.   We help anthropologists advance anthropological knowledge, build sustainable careers, and amplify the impact of anthropology within the wider world. We dedicate ourselves to broadening the conversation in anthropology to reflect the full diversity of the field.

"The purpose of anthropology is to make the world safe for human differences." – Ruth Benedict

We invite you to participate in a research study titled “An Investigation of the Demographics and Processes of Research Funding in U.S. Academic Anthropology,” led by Dr. Laura Heath-Stout.

The Department of Anthropology at the University of Chicago invites applications for an open rank position in linguistic anthropology, to begin as early as July 1, 2022.

This survey is designed to provide as complete a portrait as possible of who today’s anthropologists are, how they fund their research, and what factors determine who gets supported and who does not. 

We encourage you to check out Ayana Flewellen’s appearance in this clip from the CNN documentary short, “Lessons from the Water: Diving with a Purpose”.
