ABOUT THE BOOK

Anthropology in India has passed a long way.  The year 2020 marks the centenary of post-graduate teaching of the discipline in India, it is only befitting that the fraternity of Anthropologists in India commemorates this historic journey by revisiting and looking back, deliberating upon the disciplinary journey of Anthropology in India, through the contribution of the doyens in the field. These stalwarts also shaped the trajectories of teaching, research, and the creation of institutions and professional bodies and their organs of knowledge dissemination. A critical reflection on our history through deep reverence, documentation of the performer, and their theoretical and methodological contributions is a need of the hour.

The present compilation Architects of Anthropology in India (Volume III) incorporates a write-up covering sixteen more doyens who contributed immensely towards anthropological studies in India, contributed by a few budding anthropologists and veterans. The book could be prescribed as a reference book for students of anthropology and sociology.
