Todd lecture

Location: Drift 25 room 102 (Utrecht)

On the 2nd of June Emmanuel Todd (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emmanuel_Todd) will hold a short keynote address followed by a discussion at the University of Utrecht. He will discuss two interrelated themes:

1) The link between traditional family systems and modern ideologies from the XVIIth to the XXth century  (  a “structuralist” model)

2) The emergence of family systems, starting from a common origin around 3000 BC ( a diffusion model).

Finally he will  conclude with some methodological aspects: combining social anthropology and historical demography i.e. the work of Murdock and Laslett.
