Brian Street (1943–2017)

We are sad and sorry to inform friends and colleagues of the death of Brian Street on Wednesday 21 June at Hove in Sussex. Brian was a student of Godfrey Lienhardt at the Institute of Social Anthropology in Oxford, lecturer and senior lecturer of social anthropology at the University of Sussex, professor of language and education at King's College, London, and was made emeritus professor when he retired. From 2004-2014 he chaired the Education Committee at the Royal Anthropological Institute where he worked tirelessly for the introduction of anthropology at pre-university level in the UK and elsewhere. A full obituary will appear in due course.
