“Evans-Pritchard and Lienhardt Reconsidered”

Decades after their deaths, two Oxford anthropologists, E.E. Evans-Pritchard and his student Godfrey Lienhardt, have lost much of their relevance for many scholars. Dr. Mentore, whose  own work focuses on Amazonia and the Antilles, offers a re-reading of these once-canonical Africanists, and considers what their work might still mean for anthropologists today.
