Social Anthropology: Research


Bones Collective

logoExploring the affective materiality

and emotive presence of human remains

The Bones Collective is an interdisciplinary research network of anthropologists, archaeologists, artists based at the University of Edinburgh who share an interest in human bones. We have hosted various events including a seminar series, workshop and conference panel, and numerous less formal conversations through which we have explored the affective presence and emotive materiality of human bones. We are keen to forge creative and constructive links with scholars elsewhere who share these interests and are working on related themes.
