Hubris, power, and gender: An anthropological perspective
Please note that for mobiles we stream the presentation slides and audio of the speaker.
Dr Farrah Jarral discusses the history of anthropology, and how it shaped our contemporary understanding of the world, for good and ill. Dr Jarral argues that anthropology has helped us understand cultures different from our own, but was also used to enforce power structures, racial and gender hierarchies. Dr Jarral also focuses on the new, speculative frontiers that anthropology is heading toward.
