Applications are invited for the Evans-Pritchard Lectureship 2023-2024

Applications are invited for the Evans-Pritchard Lectureship, to take place during the academic year 2023-2024.

The Lecturer will deliver a series of four to six lectures in the course of a month, usually during May, based on fieldwork or other indigenous primary materials concerning Africa, the Middle East or the Mediterranean, and offering an empirical analysis of social relations. Scholars in the fields of social anthropology, classical studies, archaeology, modern history, and Asian and Middle Eastern studies are eligible and, other things being equal, the electors will prefer a person at the beginning of their career. A doctorate is required for eligibility. It is hoped that the Lectures will be published in book form.

Candidates for election should send an outline of their proposed lectures, a CV, and a list of publications, to by noon, Friday 26 May 2023. They should also ask two referees to send their references to – also to arrive by Friday 26 May.

Salary: Stipend of £4,000, board and lodging at All Souls College (or one of its properties) during the Lectureship, plus reasonable travel expenses.

Closing date: Friday 26 May 2023, noon
