Development

The University of Oxford is a leading international centre for anthropological teaching and research. The School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography has a wide ranging and topical research portfolio and runs teaching programmes at both undergraduate and graduate level. The school consists of major research clusters: Social Anthropology; Visual and Material Culture; Medical and Ecological Anthropology; Migration and Society; Science and Technology Studies; and Cognitive and Evolutionary Anthropology.

Additional funding in this field would enable us to continue to: attract the best and brightest students; attract and retain prominent academics ensuring stability and a continuation of our work; and to fund development of vital infrastructure and resources.

In addition to funding for posts the School has identified scholarships as a development priority.

The Study of India and South Asia at Oxford

The study of India and South Asia is undergoing a renaissance in the University of Oxford. The endowment of the M.N. Srinivas Associate Professorship in the Anthropology of India will ensure that it has the prominence it deserves, and that anthropological approaches contribute to new cohorts of Oxford students being trained both in the MSc/MPhil in Contemporary South Asia (which has a strong focus on India), and in Anthropology generally. To ensure that future generations of students receive the best possible grounding on India, it is essential to include the anthropological view, to provide bottom-up, field-based perspectives on the rapidly changing cultures and societies of the region.

Please see the webpage on the M.N. Srinivas Professorship in the Anthropology of India for further information.
