Student for a Day - Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology
- 17 April 2019
Are you interested in studying the international bachelor's programme in Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology? Do you want to know more about what it is like to study at Leiden University? Be a Cultural Anthropology and Development Student for a Day! By attending a lecture with a current anthropology student, you can learn all the ins-and-outs of this programme.
The Anthropology and Sociology of Sub-Saharan Africa
Witchcraft is a subject that has been extensively studied in the history of the anthropology of Africa. One of the most famous anthropological classics on this subject is Evans-Pritchard's work on witchcraft of the Azande (Witchcraft, Oracles and Magic among the Azande, 1937). Witchcraft still remains an important topic in anthropology, because witchcraft is a subject and everyday concern in many African countries. Unfortunately, witchcraft, especially in popular debates, has become one of the most exoticising examples to describe Africa (think back to the previous lecture). In this lecture we will go deeper into the role of witchcraft and try to 'normalise' the subject.
