RADICAL ANTHROPOLOGY: AN INTRODUCTION TO ANTHROPOLOGY
Human language and symbolic culture emerged in Africa over 100,000 years ago, in a momentous and revolutionary upheaval whose echoes can still be heard in myths, fairy tales and ritual traditions from around the world. Topics this term range from the history of the family, through archaeoastronomy, climate science and mythology to the politics of sex and gender. In addition to lectures and workshops, the term features spectacular live shows by two of Britain's most celebrated performance artists, Marcus Coates (May 19) and Marisa Carnesky (June 23).
