An Ecology of Life

Lecture by Tim Ingold

Debate

Anthropologist Tim Ingold inaugurates the series "Inhabiting the World", with a lecture on the relationships between nature and culture.

For Tim Ingold, anthropology is not about collecting data on human societies and cultures. Rather, it is about engaging in the lives of others to explore the possibilities of life on this world. Through this approach, many of our most common notions fall apart, while a new set of questions emerges. Is there truly a difference between nature and culture? What does our relationship with animals reveal about our own humanity? After centuries of perceiving humanity as somehow separate from the world, what would it mean to return to it?

Professor Ingold will guide us through this new terrain, challenging the ideas that brought us here, in a lecture for the Second International Conference of the Network of Iberoamerican Anthropologists, organised in collaboration with the University of Barcelona’s Research Group on Exclusion and Social Control (GRECS) and the Network of Iberoamerican Anthropologists (AIBR).

Presenters: Ana Cristina Ramírez Barreto

Participants: Tim Ingold
