Summer High-School Program


The Ethnography Lab in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Toronto runs a week-long anthropology program for high-school students interested in culture, social change, and history. Students from local high-schools will have a chance to explore Kensington Market’s history as one of Canada’s most celebrated multicultural neighborhoods.

As they learn about the market and its place in Toronto’s changing social landscape, students are introduced to interview techniques, archival research, field-note writing, and participant-observation.

The program is run by senior anthropology undergraduate and graduate students. Participants in grade 9, 10, 11, and 12 are welcome to apply for this exciting intensive program, which usually runs at the beginning of July since 2016.

Space in this course is usually limited to 10-15 students. Materials are provided.

If you are interested in this opportunity, visit the information page for the 2018 Summer High School Program, fill out the application by May 30th, 2018, and submit by email to
