We have created a learning pack aimed at undergraduate and older school-age students to help them explore the exhibition and try out anthropological illustration for themselves!

Drawing on examples from the exhibition, the pack examines five keys ways that anthropologists are using illustration: to communicate about difficult subjects, to tell stories, to make field notes, to collaborate with research participants, and to present information. It also includes a list of further resources, a glossary to help those less familiar with anthropology understand the material, and various activities that can be undertaken in and outside of the classroom.

There is also a challenge for students to create their own illustration based on a small piece of ethnographic illustration. We encourage students to share their work with us either via the hashtag #illustratinganthropology on Instagram, or by emailing publicanthropologists@gmail.com.

We look forward to seeing what you create, and we hope to be able to feature your work on this blog!
