The potentially deleterious effects of precarity in the academic workplace, particularly but not only as it impacts upon those who are at the outset of their careers,  are well known. Yet, the effects of precarity over how anthropology is taught have not been properly addressed. In this seminar, three speakers will reflect upon their own experiences and that of their contemporaries, outlining the way the training in anthropology is affected by precarity. We invite colleagues to join in for the discussion as to diagnosing and reflecting upon what may have been tried, and what may be better put in place in the future.
