Ethics, Advocacy and Expertise; Anthropology in Australia - Day 2

Anthroprospective and the Centre for Native Title Anthropology collaborated in September 2023 to host an evening of discussion and learning as we explored the intersection of ethics, advocacy, and expertise in the field of anthropology in Australia. Our esteemed panel of experts delved into the complexities of the discipline and shared insights on how anthropology can contribute to important social issues facing our society today. The event was for anyone wanting to learn more about what it means to be human in a rapidly changing world and to discuss innovative and critical ideas in a supportive environment.
