Evans-Pritchard was one of the most influential anthropologists of his, or any other time. Indeed, as time goes by, his importance becomes ever more evident. In A Touch of Genius, a distinguished group of contributors consisting of E-P’s colleagues, family and those who have used his writings reflect upon his life, work and influence. This launch event will provide an opportunity to discuss the book, to learn from the contributors, and to reconsider E-Ps life and legacy.
Andre Singer, the editor of the volume, was E-P’s research assistant, and is a leading documentary film maker and author. A former President of the Royal Anthropological Institute, he is currently CEO of Spring Films.
