Anthropology PhDs get world-class training

PhD students and early career researchers from Social Anthropology have returned from a week in the Highlands, spent with their peers from other Scottish universities, as part of the new Scottish Training in Anthropological Research (STAR) programme. 

A particular highlight of the week was the opportunity for young researchers to present their own work in a series of master-classes convened by internationally renowned guests. The guests this year included Michael Jackson (Harvard), John Borneman (Princeton) and João de Piña Cabral (Lisbon). The STAR programme brings together junior anthropologists from Glasgow, Aberdeen, St Andrews and Edinburgh. It is convened by Jonathan Spencer from the School of Social and Political Studies in Edinburgh, with support from the ESRC's Researcher Development Initiative.
