Speaker(s): Dr Sian Lazar
Chair: Professor Katy Gardner

Recorded on 19 May 2016 at Old Theatre, Old Building

Taking inspiration from how Malinowski approached exchange, magic and law, Dr Lazar explores some of the realms of politics that lie beyond self-interest (enlightened or not).

Sian Lazar (@sianml) is a Senior Lecturer in the Division of Social Anthropology at the University of Cambridge.

Katy Gardner trained at Cambridge and the LSE. After spending much of her career at the University of Sussex she has recently returned to the LSE. Her work focuses on issues of globalisation, migration and 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. We are committed to both maintaining and renewing the core of the discipline, and our undergraduate teaching and training of PhD students is recognised as outstanding.
