Sherry Ortner, UCLA, Anthropology

Prof. Ortner will not be showing the film she will be discussing, Suppressed:  The Fight to Vote, during the talk. If you are interested in seeing it, it is only 38 minutes long and is available for free on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=03DGjnIkTdI.

Culture, Power, and Social Change is concerned with a broad range of issues in sociocultural anthropology. As the name of the group suggests, we are particularly interested in how the workings of culture, and of different forms of power and inequality, play out in the contemporary world. And behind these two issues are questions of social change, that is, of the ways in which the rapidly changing world of today impacts people’s lives, and in turn, how people in different circumstances seek to bring about change in the world. CPSC I hosts talks by both in-house faculty members and visiting post-doctoral and faculty level scholars; CPSC II hosts talks by advanced graduate students. All CPSC events are open only to UCLA faculty, students, and invited guests.
