6th Annual David W. McCurdy Distinguished Anthropology Lecture

The Macalester Anthropology Department along with the Kofi Annan Institute for Global Citizenship invite you to join us Friday, April 23, 2021, at 4:45pm CST for the Sixth Annual David W. McCurdy Distinguished Anthropology Lecture.

Held via Zoom, this year’s speaker is Dr. Duana Fullwiley, Associate Professor of Anthropology at Stanford University. Dr. Fullwiley’s lecture is titled Breaking anthropology open: art, science and the vibrational possibilities of ethnographic un-disciplining.


In this talk Dr. Fullwiley will explore the sensory and curious nature of ethnographic sensibility in its relation to artistic ways of knowing that exceed the dividing lines of culture, of anthropologist and subject, of self and other. By taking scenes, questions, and field notes from her work that join genetics, race, migration, the pandemic as well as conveyance forms from the arts—the exhibit and the poem— Fullwiley’s will share how the back-and-forth of an anthropological approach of sense-making stimulates conceptual openings with the potential to both unsettle and ground us in new ways.
