About this event

Resuming our annual lecture series in honour of our Department’s founding professor, Daryll Forde, we are excited to announce that this year’s lecture will be delivered by Professor Orlando Patterson, on the theme of "Slavery and Protracted Genocide: Life and Scholarship in an Ancient Colony".

Orlando Patterson, a historical and cultural sociologist, is John Cowles Professor of Sociology at Harvard University. He previously held faculty appointments at the University of the West Indies, his alma mater, and the London School of Economics where he received his Ph.D. His academic interests include the culture and practices of freedom; the comparative study of slavery and ethno-racial relations; and the cultural sociology of poverty and underdevelopment with special reference to the Caribbean and African American youth. He has also written on the cultural sociology of sports, especially the game of cricket. Professor Patterson is the author of numerous academic papers and six major academic books including, Slavery and Social Death (1982); Freedom in the Making of Western Culture (1991); The Ordeal of Integration (1997); and The Cultural Matrix: Understanding Black Youth (2015).

The lecture will be followed by a reception in the Anthropology department, 14 Taviton Street, London, WC1H 0BW.

Organiser of Daryll Forde Lecture 2021 by Professor Orlando Patterson

We study humanity in all its aspects: from our evolution as a species, to our relationship with the material/digital world, and our vast variety of social practices and cultural forms.

Our department is one of the few in the country that combines Biological Anthropology, Social Anthropology, Material Culture and Medical Anthropology to give you a truly broad-based anthropology degree. The breadth and depth of this interdisciplinary approach is reflected in our teaching and research.
