Hosted by SOAS, University of London.
SOAS, University of London invites you to an afternoon of exploring Anthropology and Sociology at our central London campus.
Full Event Details:
Social Anthropology is an academic discipline that in many respects straddles the social sciences and humanities. It both draws from and contributes to such disciplines as philosophy, linguistics and literature, as well as sociology and history. The full title of the department of Anthropology and Sociology emphasises the range of our concern with Third World studies, from more remote communities to more recent urban development, avoiding any arbitrary distinction that may be implied by reference to either anthropology or sociology alone.
SOAS, University of London is the only Higher Education institution in Europe specialising in the study of Asia, Africa and the Near and Middle East. Uniquely combining language scholarship, disciplinary expertise and regional focus, it has the largest concentration in Europe of academic staff concerned with Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
In this half-day taster programme you will learn about some of the fascinating anthropological issues of these regions during workshops and lectures taken by renowned experts in the field. You will also have opportunities to ask questions and find out more about the study of Anthropology and Sociology at SOAS.
