Podcast of interview with Prof. Henrietta Moore, the William Wyse Chair of Social Anthropology at the University of Cambridge. Professor Henrietta L. Moore talks about the meaning of the EASA conference theme “Uncertainty and Disquiet”, the tradition of the discipline in the UK and anthropology´s contemporary challenges. We touch on issues concerning the decline of funding, increasing protests and pressures of mobility as well as open access approaches, such as the HAU Journal of Ethnographic Theory.
This interview with Professor Moore is the first of three episodes that were produced by Norma Deseke at the 12th conference of the European Association of Social Anthropologists in Nanterre, Paris in July 2012. Further talks recorded at EASA provide interviews with Helena Wulff, Professor at the University of Stockholm and Dan Rabinowitz from Tel Aviv University.
