A blog. A podcast. A social fact.

Co-founded by anthropology PhD candidates from the Australian National University, The Familiar Strange uses anthropological thinking to explore this time of jarring social, cultural and political messiness. Their aim is to reach out to a wider community about what anthropologists do within and beyond ‘field sites’. They ask anthropologists to bring their tools to bear, and to make anthropological contributions more broadly familiar.

Have a read, have a listen, and consider contributing to the dialogue - comment, give feedback, suggest expert interviewees you’d like to hear from, or submit a blog (submission guidelines are on the website).
