Clifford Geertz

Clifford Geertz has died.

I can still remember the excitement I felt coming to anthropology as a history undergraduate already interested in early modern social/cultural history. I knew almost nothing about social and cultural anthropology (mind you, let’s face it, I still don’t know very much) and I started on a voyage of discovery with an assortment of anthropologists linked mainly by the fact that they were available on the not-so-well-stocked library shelves: Geertz, Victor Turner, Max Gluck, Barbara Douglas, Pierre Bourdieu and others.

Some links from Savage Minds.
