Histories of Anthropology: Transforming Knowledge and Power (1870-1970)
University of Cambridge, 18-19 September 2017
Keynote Speaker: Sadiah Qureshi (Birmingham)
The rise of anthropology as an academic discipline transformed the development of cognate disciplines and the interaction of power and knowledge in the modern world. This two-day conference will explore these two themes in terms of the social, intellectual and political history of anthropology, ranging in scale from the local to the transnational and global.
