This is an online exhibition exploring human lives around the world through comics, drawings, and paintings of anthropological research.

From those who use illustration as a fieldwork method, to others who partner with artists and research participants to tell stories, this exhibition draws together a wide range of ways that contemporary anthropologists are illustrating anthropology.

Starting in September 2020 we will be releasing new illustrations on this website every week over the next ten weeks. You can also follow the latest releases on the @Illustrating_Anthropology Instagram account.
