UCL Anthropology


Research seminars

Human Ecology Research Group seminars

Students on this Masters are automatically affiliated to, and participate in, the Human Ecology Research Group (HERG) with its long record of fostering outstanding postgraduate and postdoctoral research. The group meets weekly, and provides a forum for UCL Anthropology post-graduate and post-doctoral researchers working in related fields to present their work in progress or research findings. The insights HERG develops around research design and methodology are of central relevance to MSc AED students’ take home exams and research dissertations.

Other research seminars

In addition to HERG, students must attend at least one other research seminar per week. Given our location in central London, we encourage students to take advantage of the diverse range of talks offered within UCL Anthropology and across the wider UCL community and external Institutions (such as the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, London School of Economics, School of Oriental and African Studies etc.) that are relevant to the Environmental Anthropology programme. The programme tutor will make a list of relevant seminar series available to students.
