Welcome to GBAC!

The Greater Boston Anthropology Consortium is composed of the anthropology faculties at Brandeis University, Bridgewater State University, Clark University, Northeastern University, Olin College, Tufts University, Wellesley College and Wheaton College.

The consortium sponsors joint speakers and combined student activities and encourages cross-enrollment (when possible) at the undergraduate and graduate levels. In addition, graduate students may enroll in graduate courses at several other Boston-area institutions, including Boston College, Boston University and the Graduate Consortium in Women’s Studies at Radcliffe College.

Bruce Owens at Wheaton College (MA) coordinates the Greater Boston Anthropology Consortium.
