Symposium, Party, and 'Memory Book'
retired from my University Professorship on September 30th 2009. On
July 4th ('Independence Day') I celebrated with friends,
family and colleagues in the Saltmarsh Rooms at King's.
Humphrey: ‘Archives, Traditions and Institutional Memory’
Thomas: ‘Alan Macfarlane and the Middle Ages’
Burke: ‘Historical Anthropology: when, why and how’
Goody (read by James Laidlaw in Jack Goody’s absence): ‘The Europeanist
and the Eurasianist’
papers I made an informal response.
and 'Memory Book'
evening I gave a party which was filmed
by Zilan Wang. I have edited it with a personal commentary to share
with those who were there and those who were not. I apologise in advance
for any errors that I may have made in identification or description!
of those who came to the party (and others who could not come) wrote
some memories of their relationship with me. These are in a ‘Memory
Book’, which can be updated if further contributions emerge.
