Royal Anthropological Institute / British Museum Centre for Anthropology

ANTHROPOLOGY IN THE WORLD

BRITISH MUSEUM, CLORE CENTRE, 8th to 10th JUNE 2012

The Royal Anthropological Institute is pleased to announce that a conference ‘Anthropology in the World’ will take place at the British Museum, Clore Centre, in conjunction with the BM Centre for Anthropology. The aim of this conference is to explore the manifold ways in which anthropology in its widest sense has been influential outside academia. It is aimed therefore at having a widespread appeal to the general public and to those anthropologists who are working in careers outside the university. We hope too that it will be of interest to academic anthropologists who are interested in the way that their subject is diffused and used in wider society, and to those students who are interested in applying their anthropological skills outside the academic arena.

You can view a short film about the conference here.  You can also view Gillian Tett's keynote lecture here.
