Social Anthropologies of the Welsh: Past and Present book cover depicting daffodil in welsh flag colours


In May 2019 Professor John Morgan, convened a joint symposium between the Royal Anthropological Institute (RAI), the Learned Society of Wales, The Honourable Society of Cymmrodorion, and WISERD. The outcome of that event is the new publication Social Anthropologies of the Welsh: Past and Present, edited by Prof W. John Morgan (Cardiff University) and Dr Fiona Bowie (Oxford University)

To mark this new publication, which is part of their Country Series, the RAI is holding a virtual seminar book launch. The book asks the perennial question, ‘Who are the Welsh?’, and this collection illustrates the history of anthropology in Wales and its distinctive contributions to this debate.

If you would like to attend the book launch, please visit the RAI website for further information.
