About Indian Anthropological Society

The Indian Anthropological Society (IAS) is one of the premier Professional Societies in India, which grew out of the Anthropological Club in 1921. Sir Ashutosh Mukhopadhyay was the founder president of the Club. It continued for several years as a viable academic body. Later on, it was revived as “The Indian Anthropological Society”, which became a registered body in West Bengal during 1958-59. The major objective of the IAS is to operate as the forum for periodically defining the role and relevance of anthropology in the contemporary and emerging situation in India and develop inter-culturally tolerant outlook among citizens of India.
