Prof Tim Ingold (University of Aberdeen)

with Dr Elizabeth Hallam (University of Oxford) as discussant 

and David Shankland (Royal Anthropological Institute) as chair

November 2021 saw the publication of a new collection of essays by Tim Ingold, entitled Imagining for Real, together with the republication, in new editions, of his two previous collections, The Perception of the Environment, from 2000, and Being Alive, from 2011. Where Perception brought together writings from the 1990s, on themes of livelihood, dwelling and skill, Being Alive followed this up with essays, written in the 2000s, on themes of movement, knowledge and description. Imagining for Real completes the trilogy with a series of reflections on the core themes of creation, attention and correspondence. Together, these volumes include no fewer than 65 essays, covering some 1,300 pages of text, and wrap up three decades of discipline-spanning inquiry into the conditions and possibilities of life in the one world we all inhabit.
In this event, Tim Ingold will discuss his collected essays in conversation with Elizabeth Hallam. Following the conversation, participants will be invited to pose questions of their own. 

All three publications in the trilogy are available from the publisher Routledge here:
