On 28 November 2020, the Swiss Society of Anthropology hold its Annual General Assembly remotely and not – as it was planned – in Chur. This decision was due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation in Switzerland.

Despite these difficult times, around 20 members took part in the virtual meeting and vividly discussed matters of the society. The Annual Meeting is postponed to May 2021 and will again deal with diachronic trends in physical anthropology.
After the General Assembly, PD Dr. Kaspar Staub from the Institute of Evolutionary Medicine of the University of Zurich gave an inspiring talk on "Body height and body shape in Switzerland since 1800, with a special focus on the last 40 years”.
