Video Interviews on the History of Anthropology in Zürich (in German)

With the founding of the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology and the Ethnographic Museum in 1971, anthropology at Zürich became an independent subject. The university entrusted the new chair of Social Anthropology to Prof. Dr. Lorenz Löffler, who decisively influenced anthropology here from 1971 to 1995. The following video interviews show conversations with people who experienced the ‘founding era’ of the department.
