Malinowski Memorial Lecture
Date: Thursday 2 June 2005
Venue: Old Theatre, Old Building
Speaker: Dr David Mosse
Chair: Professor Charles Stafford
This lecture will focus on the ethnographic analysis of powerful institutions, drawing on the speaker's own research on international aid and development projects. Dr 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 DFID.
This event is free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is on a first come, first serve basis.
