RAI RESEARCH SEMINAR

SEMINAR SERIES AT THE ROYAL ANTHROPOLOGICAL INSTITUTE

Rider Haggard, RLS, Hardy, Kipling, and other movers of the late nineteenth-century anthropological avant-garde

Professor Jeremy MacClancy, Oxford Brookes

Wednesday 24 April at 5.30 pm

Our conceptions of the boundaries of anthropology are too narrow. We arbitrarily restrict our vision of what anthropology could be by ignoring how broad a range of people productively participate in the anthropological enterprise. Taking this wider approach more seriously enables us to entertain a richer, more democratic idea of what our subject is and can strive to achieve. I illustrate these points by looking at the work of key participants in anthropological debates of the late nineteen and early twentieth centuries: Rider Haggard, RLS, Kipling, HG Wells, and other popular writers of that time.
