Event Details

A ONE-DAY SEMINAR ON THE LIFE AND WORKS OF ELIZABETH COLSON

Date of seminar: 12 October 2017
Location of seminar: Royal Anthropological Institute, 50 Fitzroy Street, London.
Closing date for submissions: 1 July 2017

The late Elizabeth Colson was for many years a Fellow of the RAI. She very kindly remembered the institute in her will with a gift of £10,000. In order to mark her scholarly achievements, we should like to hold a day in her memory. This day will recall her great contribution in several fields, including the anthropology of Africa, the anthropology of migration and displaced peoples, applied anthropology and gender. In general terms, we hope that the day will give us the opportunity to revisit and discuss current topics in the anthropology of sub-Saharan Africa, particularly the Tonga, as well as to reconsider the work of Professor Colson in some detail. Papers which reflect upon the Rhodes Livingstone Institute and the context of anthropological practice in colonial and post-colonial Africa are equally welcome.

Royal Anthropological Institute, 50 Fitzroy Street, London W1T 5BT.  The RAI office is just around the corner from Warren Street, NORTH of Fitzroy Square. It is next door to French's Theatre Bookshop.
