Archaeological Forum

‘Beyond Malinowski’ reconnecting archaeology and anthropology

  • Date: February 21st, 2019 13:00-17:00
  • Venue: Faculty of Archaeology, van Steenisgebouw, Leiden University
  • Cost: free
  • Registration deadline: February 15th

Most archaeologists have some basic knowledge of anthropology and ethnography. Every archaeologist has heard of Malinowski’s Kula Ring and Mauss’ Essay sur le don. Occasionally archaeologists even apply their anthropological knowledge to aid them in interpreting their datasets. Without meaning to diminish the importance of Malinowski’s and Mauss’ works, surely archaeology should not ignore the myriad anthropological perspectives developed in the intervening years? At the same time, if archaeology is anthropology or nothing (Willey and Phillips, 1958), then the archaeological perspective might be valuable for anthropology as well. How can both disciplines benefit from one another? SAD would like to invite both archaeologists and anthropologists to join the discussion in order to reconnect both disciplines.

Speakers of different backgrounds will share their experiences and views on this topic. Confirmed speakers are:

  • Mirjam Kars (University of Amsterdam)
  • Pieter ter Keurs (Leiden University)
  • Caroline Jeffra (University of Amsterdam)
  • Jeltsje Stobbe (University of Amsterdam)
  • Eric Venbrux (Radboud University Nijmegen, Center for Thanatology)
