Conversations with classic theorists Masterclass with Prof. Sondra Hausner (Oxford)

The masterclass will begin as an intensive seminar focused on classic theories about the nature of culture and society, including, primarily, those of Emile Durkheim, Max Weber, and Clifford Geertz. Together we will attempt to establish to what extent these approaches endure in our present-day discipline: does contemporary anthropology reflect an unbroken lineage of thought on the constituent parts of culture, or do we see clear ruptures in its development?

Beschreibung

Masterclass


Prof. Sondra Hausner is this year’s guest of the renowned Ad.E.Jensen Memorial Lectures at the Frobenius Institute for Research in Cultural Anthropology (Frankfurt a.M.), titled “A genealogy of method: anthropology’s ancestors and the meaning of culture”. In tandem with this lecture series, this masterclass held by Prof. Hausner gives young researchers the opportunity to present their work and discuss it with her. The masterclass is free of charge, but places are limited and registration is required. We invite young researchers (Master and PhD students) to apply.


Outline


The masterclass will begin as an intensive seminar focused on classic theories about the nature of culture and society, including, primarily, those of Emile Durkheim, Max Weber, and Clifford Geertz. Together we will attempt to establish to what extent these approaches endure in our present-day discipline: does contemporary anthropology reflect an unbroken lineage of thought on the constituent parts of culture, or do we see clear ruptures in its development? Students’ own areas of research represent the most current manifestation of anthropology: in the second part of the class, they will be invited to consider which theorists – classic or current – inform each of their work. It is hoped the class will enable students to consider their own intellectual genealogies, thus strengthening their grasp of theoretical models and enabling their decisions about the ways in which they wish to use disciplinary histories, whether it is to embrace, expand, or challenge them.
