Marshall Sahlins: Anthropology


Chicago Humanities Festival

Published on Nov 17, 2014

Marshall Sahlins embodies the modern history of anthropology. From early work on “stone age economics” to a brilliant theory on who killed Captain Cook to a recent, revolutionary approach to kinship, he has repeatedly reset the agenda for the discipline. A one-time colleague of Claude Lévi-Strauss, Sahlins looks back on decades of studies of Oceanic societies and shares insights into his unparalleled career. The University of Chicago scholar, rabble-rouser, campus activist, and inventor of the teach-in holds forth on his home turf. He will be joined in conversation by CHF’s Marilynn Thoma Endowed Chair for Artistic Leadership and UChicago anthropology PhD Matti Bunzl.
