«Красная декада в истории сотрудничеста русских и американских антропологов» [The Red Decade in the History of Collaboration between Russian and American Anthropologists]
- Main contributor
This talk will focus on the scholarly activities of Julia Averkieva and Archie Phinney, anthropologists mentored by Franz Boas, the “father of modern anthropology” and a seminal figure in 20th century North American anthropology. While a Soviet exchange student at Columbia University in 1929-1931, Averkieva accompanied Boas in fieldwork among the Kwakiutl people of British Columbia. Phinney, a Nez Perce Indian, taught and conducted research at the Leningrad Academy of Sciences from 1932 to 1937, serving for many years as a field agent in the Bureau of Indian Affairs upon his return to the United States.
