Marie Jahoda 141


I became interested in anthropology after spending a couple of years travelling in Asia; conducted several years’ fieldwork in Indonesia in two contrasting settings: tribal Nias and Muslim Java; British Academy Postdoc 1990-3; worked at Brunel since 1998; in 2007 launched the first Masters in psychological anthropology outside the USA.
