About the Lecture Series

Established in 1991, the Anthropology Emeritus Lecture Series honors a designated Emeritus faculty member from the U.C. Berkeley Department of Anthropology with a lecture by a distinguished anthropologist working in an area related to the honorees' field of expertise.

Beginning in 1995, the lecture series has been enhanced by exhibits at the George and Mary Foster Anthropology Library and on the Internet illustrating the career of the honoree including biographical, bibliographical and other information.

As a collection, the Anthropology Emeritus web sites provide a perspective on anthropology at the University of California and more generally, a recent history of anthropology as a discipline.
