Dr David Mosse, the School of Oriental and African Studies, will give a public lecture at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) on Thursday 2 June. His lecture is titled: Anti-social Anthropology: objectivity, objection and the ethnography of public policy and professional communities.
The lecture will focus on the ethnographic analysis of powerful institutions, drawing on the Dr Mosses research on international aid and development projects.
David Mosse will show how influential informants sometimes object to ethnographic accounts, resist anthropological boundary making, and attempt to unpack academic knowledge back into relationships.
Dr David Mosse is senior lecturer in social anthropology at the School of Oriental and African Studies. He is author of The Rule of Water: statecraft, ecology and collective action and Cultivating Development and has worked in development for Oxfam and the Department for International Development.
Professor Charles Stafford, LSE, will chair this event.
Anti-social Anthropology: objectivity, objection and the ethnography of public policy and professional communities is on Thursday 2 June at 5.30pm in the Old Theatre, Old Building, LSE. This event is free and open to all with no ticket required.
