Evans-Pritchard Lectureship 2022-2023

Applications are invited for the Evans-Pritchard Lectureship during the academic year 2022-2023.

The Lecturer will deliver a series of four to six lectures in the course of a month, usually during May, based on fieldwork or other indigenous primary materials concerning Africa, the Middle East or the Mediterranean, and offering an empirical analysis of social relations. Scholars in the fields of social anthropology, classical studies, archaeology, modern history, and Oriental studies are eligible and, other things being equal, the electors will prefer a person at the beginning of their career. A doctorate is required for eligibility. It is hoped that the Lectures will be published in book form.

They should also ask two referees to send their references to evans-pritchard-lectureship@anthro.ox.ac.uk – also to arrive by Tuesday 3rd May.  

Salary: Stipend of £4,000, board and lodging at All Souls College (or one of its properties) during the Lectureship, plus reasonable travel expenses.
