Three Challenges in Teaching Anthropology

Main Article Content

Hubert Bastide


This article discusses three intricately interwoven challenges in teaching anthropology: teaching anthropology to students from different disciplines; pedagogical negotiations of power distance; and working with the specificities of the Oxford tutorial system. The author argues for understanding and actively engaging with the lived dynamics of teaching and learning anthropology where students, tutors and the discipline of anthropology are constituted.
