The Société d’Anthropologie de Paris is a scholarly society founded in 1859. It was recognised by decree on 21 June 1864 as an organisation serving the public interest and operates as a not-for-profit association under the French Charities Act of 1901. Its aim is to study the natural history of humans, i.e. the origin and biological diversity of the human species.
The activities of the Société d'Anthropologie de Paris are essentially the publication of an international scientific journal, the Bulletins et Mémoires de la Société d’Anthropologie de Paris, and the organisation of an annual scientific meeting "Les Journées", also of international scope. It also distributes scientific prizes and holds a conference for the general public each year in conjunction with the annual scientific meeting.
Nowadays, the society communicates through this website, a mailing list for its members, a Facebook account, an X account (ex-Twitter : @fil_sap) and a Discord server. This Discord server aims at beeing a place of exchanges open to all members (and even everyone for some spaces) to increase scientific discussion and fellowship within our community.
