Event description

Description

The “Histories of Anthropology: Transforming Knowledge and Power (1870-1970)” conference will be held on the 18th and 19th of September 2017 at Gonville and Caius College, University of Cambridge.

The conference will examine the history of anthropology in terms of two broadly conceived themes. The first concerns the history of anthropology’s relationship with cognate disciplines. While the second explores the political and social history of anthropology, its relationship to governance, colonialism and broader political and social transformations. We are particularly interested in transnational and trans-colonial perspectives.

This conference is organized by the University of Cambridge’s Faculty of History, with support from the University of Cambridge Museums and Botanic Garden, and generously supported by the Royal Historical Society and the George Macaulay Trevelyan Fund.
