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.

werkThe latest Institutional Development Grant brings together four Baltic-region universities to support the establishment of a separate doctoral program in anthropology within the framework of the Baltic Graduate School. Our Foundation Anthropologist for International Programs, Judy Kried, spoke to Dr. Aivita Putnina, chair of the Department of Anthropology at the University of Latvia, to learn more about the program, the grant, and anthropology in the Baltic region.

151The 151st(!) symposium of the Wenner-Gren Foundation, "New Media, New Publics" was held this past March 13-19 in Sintra, Portugal. Like all of our symposia, the work presented here will be featured in a future special open-access issue of Current Anthropology, and keep an eye on our blog for a series of participant videos exploring the themes, concerns, and results of the conference!
