Venue: Department of Social Anthropology, University of Oslo
Henrietta L. Moore delivered the 50 year anniversary lecture to celebrate the establishment in 1964 of the Department of Social Anthropology (SAI) at the University of Oslo. SAI is the largest anthropological department in Scandinavia and has been an important arena and starting point for the Norwegian anthropological tradition.
Should research and social commitment be combined? What should be the role of anthropology in the face of major contemporary challenges such as climate change, faltering democracies and cultural hatred?
