"Writing Anthropology in the 20th Century: The French Case"

A talk by Dr. Vincent Debaene of the Department of French and Romance Philology at Columbia University.

In this talk, Prof. Vincent Debaene will examine 20th-century French anthropology in a comparative perspective. He will delineate the complex and contradictory identity of an intellectual tradition which, since the 1920’s, has made claims to both scientific rigor and avant-garde literary experimentation. His goal is to bring into relief the cultural specificity of a French disciplinary practice so often considered untranslatable to anthropologists from the English-speaking world.

This is the second EU Center for Excellence Lecture in Anthropology, sponsored by the Center for European Studies, the Department of Anthropology, the Department of French and Italian, the Program in Comparative Literature, and the Humanities Institute.
