Evans-Pritchard Lectureship 2019-2020
In 1998 All Souls College received a generous benefaction to establish an annual Lectureship in memory of Sir Edward Evans-Pritchard, Professor of Social Anthropology and Fellow of All Souls (1946-70) in the disciplines (social anthropology, classical studies, archaeology, modern history, Oriental studies) and the geographical areas (Africa, the Middle East, the Mediterranean) that most occupied him.
The benefactor is keen that the lectures should provide an empirical analysis of social relations, and should be based on fieldwork or on indigenous primary materials. The electors are enjoined, if possible, to appoint an early-career scholar rather than a mid-career or well-established person. A doctorate is required for eligibility.
The Lecturer should give four to six lectures over the course of one month, usually during May. The Lecturer is not required to reside in Oxford, and the position may be combined with others elsewhere. It is expected that the lectures will normally be published.
The Lecturer will receive a stipend of £3,000, and reasonable travel expenses, Common Table rights in College, and free accommodation in the College or one of its properties for the period of the lectures.
There is no application form. Candidates should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org setting out their proposed course of lectures, a CV, and a list of publications by Friday 26 April 2019. They should also ask two referees to send their references to email@example.com – also to arrive by Friday 26 April 2019.
The electors are Professor Marilyn Booth, Professor David Gellner, Professor Wendy James, Dr Sloan Mahone, and Dr Rosalind Thomas. They hope to arrive at a decision by early May. Their choice is not limited to those who apply.
