Anthropology with Tim Ingold and friends

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In 1999, Tim Ingold moved from Manchester to take up a newly established Chair of Anthropology at the University of Aberdeen. In regard to environment, Tim has often emphasised that we cannot consider environment as ‘space’ because, for him, space is empty. Much of Tim’s approach to humanity’s place in the environment, and to ‘animals as nonhuman persons’, has arisen through his interest in circumpolar hunting and herding peoples. Humans and non-humans build in the process of being involved in many ways of inhabiting their world, their environment. This is not an inscription of precise design onto material. Tim’s concern with creativity was also inspired by a practice- and student-led study group which flourished during his later years at the University of Manchester. In 2012, Tim Ingold was awarded a grant from the European Research Council to devote his time to the study of this ‘inside way’ of working and thinking.
