Being human... book launch for Anthropology

Thursday, 27 September 2012


Two senior members of Oxford Brookes’ Social Sciences department are celebrating the launch of their brand new book, ‘Anthropology’, on Thursday 4 October, 5:30pm at Blackwell University Bookshop, Gipsy Lane. Joy Hendry, Emeritus Professor of Social Anthropology at Brookes and Simon Underdown, Senior Lecturer in Biological Anthropology have written a beginner’s guide to Anthropology, described as “An excellent place to start discovering the range and depth of anthropological enquiry”. The book explores humanity from a cultural and biological perspective and offers some illuminating examples including the relationships we have with both our mobile phones and the bathroom. Read more about this fascinating book and enjoy a glass of wine to celebrate the launch at Blackwell University Bookshop on Thursday 4 October, at 5:30pm. There will be signed copies at a special discounted price of £7.99 (rrp £9.99)
