Anthro-vision: How anthropology can explain business and life, Tuesday 25 May, 14-15.00 BST.

Register at the following link.

Peter Tufano will be interviewing Gillian Tett (bestselling author, Financial Times journalist, and anthropology PhD) about her new book: Anthro-Vision: How Anthropology Can Explain Business and Life.

For over a century, anthropologists have immersed themselves in unfamiliar cultures, uncovering the hidden rituals that govern how people act. Now, a new generation of anthropologists are using these methods in a different context – to illuminate the behaviour of businesses and consumers around the globe.

In Anthro-Vision, Gillian Tett reveals how anthropology can make sense of the corporate world. She outlines how anthropology helps explain consumer behaviour – revealing the ‘webs of meaning’ that underpin our shopping habits and unpicking the subtle cultural shifts driving the rise of green business.
