RAI Curl Lectureship 2009
Dr Joost Fontein has accepted an invitation to deliver the Royal Anthropological Institute Curl Lectureship in 2009.
The Council of the Royal Anthropological Institute approved the institution of a Curl Lectureship, to be awarded biennially and to alternate with the Henry Myers Lecture.
The first Lecture was held in 1963 and the Lecturer will be elected by the Council of the Institute.
Preference will be given to a topic from the fields of biological anthropology, archaeology, material culture, ethnomusicology and linguistics; and the lecturer should normally be under forty years of age.
