  2. 2003 Radcliffe-Brown Lecture: The Geography of Descent

    This lecture took place on 11 November 2003

    Professor Gillian Feeley-Harnik, University of Michigan

    Radcliffe-Brown proposed to make social anthropology into ‘a natural science of society’, a proposal that was controversial in his lifetime, and remains so now, especially in the study of kinship with which he is so closely associated. Anthropology originated in part to explain Darwin’s Descent of Man (1871) in social terms. The purpose of this lecture is to explore the popular science and culture of descent in Darwin’s time, focusing on his co-workers among the pigeon-breeders of London, in particular the silk-weavers of Spitalfields, and their concerns with the art of ‘propagating life’.

  3. 2007 Radcliffe-Brown Lecture - Anthropology is Not Ethnography

    This lecture took place on 14 March 2007

    Professor Timothy Ingold, FBA, University of Aberdeen

    Anthropology has been shrinking. Once an inclusive inquiry into the conditions of human life, it has increasingly turned inwards on itself. One reason for this shrinkage lies in the identification of anthropology with ethnography. Such identification leads us to think of observation as a means to the end of description. The lecturer will aim to show, to the contrary, how description not just literary but graphic and performative - can be re-embedded in observation. Overturning the relation between observation and description will enhance anthropology’s potential to engage with biology, psychology and archaeology on the great questions of the origins and destiny of humankind.
