Clifford, James - Visiting Professor


James Clifford taught in UCSC’s History of Consciousness Department for 33 years and was founding director of the Center for Cultural Studies. He is best known for his historical and literary critiques of anthropological practice, travel literature, and a variety of cultural performances. He is currently completing a book about indigenous cultural politics that he has been researching for nearly a decade. The book examines what it means to be "rooted" in a world where everything seems to be in motion.
