Radical Anthropology Summer talks 2024:




Language, art, music and culture emerged in Africa over 100,000 years ago, culminating in a symbolic explosion or ‘human revolution’ whose echoes can still be heard in myths and cultural traditions from around the world. These talks are a general introduction to social and biological anthropology, ranging over fields as diverse as hunter-gatherer studies, mythology, primatology, archaeology and archaeoastronomy. Radical Anthropology brings indigenous rights activists, environmentalists, feminists and others striving for a better world together with people of all ages who just want to learn about anthropology.

All talks are FREE, LIVE @UCLAnthropology Tuesdays 6:30 pm term time in Daryll Forde Seminar Room, 2nd Floor, Dept of Anthropology UCL, 14 Taviton St, London WC1H 0BW and on ZOOM (ID 384 186 2174 passcode Wawilak)
