A century after the publication of Argonauts of the Western Pacific, a panel recontextualises Malinowski in the context of colonialism.

Nearly a century after the publication of one of the key works of Anthropology, Argonauts of the Western Pacific, we look at different facets of the work and legacy of its author, Bronislaw Malinowski, and efforts to recontextualise them.

The British Library of Political and Economic Science (@LSELibrary) was founded in 1896, a year after the London School of Economics and Political Science. It has been based in the Lionel Robbins Building since 1978 and houses many world class collections, including The Women's Library.

From time to time there are changes to event details so we strongly recommend checking back on this listing on the day of the event if you plan to attend.
