If you are interested in the ways in which global asymmetries are made and can be studied, you are invited to this informal seminar debate with Jim Ferguson, a leading anthropologist interested in the way global inequalities are made in Africa and elsewhere.  The seminar - which stands in for the regular AURA Lab meeting in late April - will be a chance to explore the work of Jim Ferguson in general as well as its intersections with the study of multi-species worlds.  


The seminar is open to all.
