Sociology and Anthropology Student Association (SASA)

2019-2020 SASA Group

The Sociology and Anthropology Student Association’s goal is to give undergraduate students an opportunity to develop a relationship with the Sociology and Anthropology Department. By planning events throughout the year, we strive to create a space for members, both Executive and General, to connect with fellow classmates and faculty. Our priority is making sure everyone gets the most out of their time here at Carleton University by establishing long-lasting relationships and connectivity. Additionally, the Sociology and Anthropology Student Association aims to facilitate an environment wherein one’s research can thrive and critical knowledge can flourish. We aim to question that which is taken for granted in the social world by actively engaging the student body with critical theorists and insight.

We are always looking for Sociology and Anthropology students to come out to our events and to get involved, so please contact us if you are interested in becoming a general member, and/or if you wish to partake in our bi-weekly virtual coffee hours and peer-support sessions. If you have any questions regarding the association or have a particular sociological/anthropological topic and/or issue you would like us to shed light on, do not hesitate to reach out.

Want to chat SASA, sociology, anthropology, or anything under the Sun? Join us for bi-weekly coffee hour and general member meetings (more details available on our social media). To schedule a meeting with one of our Co-Presidents, email them at the contact listed below.

The current Co-Presidents for 2020-2021 are Felicity Hauwert and Jayani Sri Gouranga
