Anthropology Conference at Brunel
Heston link with Brunel University and the Royal Anthropology Institute
The third annual A level Anthropology Conference took place on Friday 14th November at Brunel University. It was organised by the Royal Anthropology Institute, Brunel University and Heston’s Humanities Department. This was the biggest ever turnout of students to the conference to date with 200 students from across the country, 20 teachers, 20 university students and lots of professional anthropologists attending. The day was structured around 30 minute workshops which are relevant to AS and A2 anthropology exams.
Tomislav Maric, an Anthropology Teacher at Heston and one of the organisers of the conference said: “We had a brilliant day of learning and our Heston anthropology students were great ambassadors for the school.”
This is what some of the Heston students attending had to say about the day:
“There were many interesting topics to learn and talk about. The university had a lively atmosphere with many university student ambassadors around the corner for help whenever needed. It was great to experience uni life.”

“We learnt a lot at this event. The topics we learnt about ranged from reading the body to is homosexuality universal? We also took part in workshops and we honestly believe it was a fun and educational experience.” Jagveer and Fahid 12F
“As our first experience at Brunel University we enjoyed engaging with professional anthropologists and their students to find out more about a subject we love and hope to study in the future.”
