Through its Culture@Large panel, the Society for Cultural Anthropology aims to foster and celebrate interdisciplinary dialogues that invigorate our field, helping us think and speak in new ways. This year, in collaboration with the Association for Black Anthropologists, Culture@Large will honor the work of Robin D.G. Kelley. An historian of race and the radical black imagination; urban studies, poverty, and labor; jazz and distinctive forms of African and African American modernity, among other subjects, Dr. Kelley has deeply engaged—and challenged—anthropological thought and practice. Orisanmi Burton will introduce Dr. Kelley on behalf of the ABA. Following Dr. Kelley’s talk, anthropologists John Jackson Jr., Gary Wilder, and Savannah Shange will offer reflections on his work and its salience for anthropology, followed by a discussion among the panelists and a Q&A with the audience.
