The Annual Gold Lecture and 30th Anniversary of the Department of Anthropology

You are cordially invited to attend the 2016 Annual Gold Lecture, which this year marks the 30th Anniversary of the Goldsmiths Anthropology Department.

Founded as an academic unit in 1979 by Professors Brian Morris and Pat Caplan, who were soon joined by Olivia Harris, Stephen Nugent, Victoria Goddard and Nici Nelson, the Anthropology Department was officially established in 1986 and has become synonymous with a critical approach to anthropology and a strong commitment to public engagement.

For this year’s milestone public lecture we are delighted to welcome Professor Les Back from the Department of Sociology with a lecture entitled: ‘The View from Nearby’.

Not only a valued and illustrious colleague, Professor Back was recipient of the Anthropology Department’s first PhD award. Join us as we hear his views on the future of our craft.

Please join us on Thursday 20 October 2016
6.00 – 8.00pm
Ian Gulland Lecture Theatre, Whitehead Building

The lecture will be followed by a reception.
