The Lecturer will deliver a series of four to six lectures in the course of a month, based on fieldwork or other indigenous primary materials concerning Africa, the Middle East or the Mediterranean, and offering an empirical analysis of social relations. Scholars in the fields of social anthropology, classical studies, archaeology, modern history, and Oriental studies are eligible and, other things being equal, the electors will prefer a person at the beginning of their career. A doctorate is required for eligibility. It is hoped that the Lectures will be published in book form.
