“Learning Fields, a magisterial two-volume consideration of Social Anthropology in Europe,…provides us with a stimulating , varied, yet deeply coherent range of ways of learning about our shared field…Dracklé, Edgar, Schippers, and the contributing authors have made a significant contribution with these two volumes: intellectually stimulating, pragmatically indispensable and epistemologically invaluable.” • Don Brenneis in Social Anthropology


As Europe becomes more integrated at the economic and political level, attempts are being made to harmonize education policies as well. This volume offers an important contribution in that the authors examine, for the first time,the politics and practices of social anthropology education across Europe. They look at a wide variety of current developments, including new teaching initiatives, the use of participatory teaching materials, film and video, fieldwork studies, applied anthropology, student perspectives, the educational role of museums, distance learning and the use of new technologies.

Dorle Dracklé is Professor for Social Anthropology and Intercultural Studies at the University of Bremen, Germany.

Iain R. Edgar (1948-2021) lectured in the Department of Anthropology at Durham University.
