“anthropology inevitably blurs the boundaries between the religious and the secular”

… says Michael Lambek, Professor of Anthropology at the University of Toronto, in his essay “Facing religion, from anthropology” in the new issue of Anthropology of this Century, an online journal that “publishes reviews of recent works in anthropology and related disciplines, as well as occasional feature articles” three times a year.

An video-interview with Professor Lambek can be found at “Interviews with Anthropologists”, a website featuring 15 interviews with prominent anthropologists (Maurice Bloch, Henrietta Moore, Peter van der Veer et al.). The interviews were conducted by Clarinda Still in 2008 for the Digital Anthropology Resources for Teaching (DART) project – an international collaboration between Columbia University and the London School of Economics.
