The Foundation welcomes proposals for Wenner-Gren Symposia, which are week-long workshops organized and fully funded by the Foundation. Symposium papers are ultimately published in an open access supplementary issue of the Foundation’s journal, Current Anthropology. Themes chosen address “big” issues in Anthropology and reflect the international diversity of the discipline.

Wenner-Gren Symposia are week-long workshops that involve a small group of invited scholars who meet for intensive discussion and debate. Symposia are administered and fully supported (both financially and logistically) by the Foundation.
