UCL Anthropology


Equality Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) at UCL Anthropology

We are committed to promoting equality in the department, alongside nourishing diversity and ensuring that the department is inclusive and welcoming for all staff and students. We are constantly learning through this process and welcome all feedback and comments.  

We believe that as anthropologists we should critically engage with the difficult legacies and current politics of our field, centring people and places continually pushed to the margins, and actively debating our discipline's role in, and obligations to, the world today.

The department has an EDI Committee, which is responsible for overseeing Equality, Diversity and Inclusion activities and initiatives in the department. The current chair for Term 1 2022/23 is Miranda Sheild Johansson (Tone Walford for following terms). Please get in touch if you would like any further information. 

This webpage provides a list of EDI resources available to all staff and students. We also have a dedicated EDI Moodle page with more information on departmental initiatives on EDI issues, available to Anthropology staff and students.

Please note that if you have any issues to do with your wellbeing, mental health or you need support with a disability or neurodivergency, then you can also access help and support at the Student Support and Wellbeing Services

Should you feel you have encountered, or been subject to, sexism, racism, classism, homophobia, transphobia, or prejudice against your religious belief; or if you have been discriminated against on the basis of your disability or sexual, ethnic or social identity, please contact us or the relevant UCL contacts in the pages below. UCL has a robust Report+Support system which should be used to report instances of bullying, harassment (including sexism, racism, classism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia or prejudice against your religious belief), and sexual misconduct.
