Hosted by the Department of Anthropology

Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building

Speaker

Dr Maxim Bolt

Dr Maxim Bolt

Chair

Professor Katy Gardner

This lecture will reflect on an apparently dated concept: structure. Spanning institutions of state and market, it will focus on formality as a kind of structuring, and a lens for understanding the production of difference. 

This event is the annual Malinowski Memorial Lecture.

Maxim Bolt is Reader in Anthropology and African Studies, University of Birmingham.

Katy Gardner trained at Cambridge and the LSE. After spending much of her career at the University of Sussex she has returned to the LSE. Her work focuses on issues of globalisation, migration, & economic change in Bangladesh and its transnational communities in the UK.

LSE's Anthropology Department (@LSEAnthropology), with a long and distinguished history, remains a leading centre for innovative research and teaching.
