A Kalahari Family

November 5 2013 @ 12:00 am

A Kalahari Family

Tuesday 5 November at 6pm.

Royal Anthropological Institute

What do animals mean to the changing realities of former hunter-gatherer communities?

Certain challenges faced by these communities in relation to National Park politics, conserva­tion and tourism projects will be discussed using John Marshall’s, classical ethnographic film series ‘A Kalahari Family’ that documents 50 years of Ju/’hoansi (Bushmen) ways of life.

Anthropologist and filmmaker Hugh Brody will be drawing upon these films and his own work on the ‡Khomani San (Bushmen) of the Southern Kalahari to discuss some of the problems arising for these communities in Southern Africa.

The series follows on from our ESRC Open Day seminar CONFLICTING INTERESTS? and will focus on films showcasing the Human-Animal encounters on screen.

This event is free, but places must be booked at http://www.esrckalaharifamily.eventbrite.com/
