About this event

On Campus Anthropology and Sociology Masterclass, for Year 12s and 13s

On Campus Masterclasses are subject based and are three hours long. They consist of a topic based lecture and interactive activity, led by a SOAS academic. There is also a campus tour and a workshop on Higher Education led by Student Ambassadors.

"Meandering Rivers, Broken Banks: Climate Change and Anthropology"

The Masterclass will explore river systems across the world as they face a particular susceptibility to sea level rise and global warming at a time of climate change. We will answer questions like:

  • How are people keeping up with the changes?
  • How do governments help people on river banks as climate change faces?

The session will also answer the crucial role of anthropology in understanding the ever-changing planet. There will be a group activity as well.

Participants will develop their critical thinking, public speaking and analytical skills.
