Marilyn Strathern is Emeritus Professor of Social Anthropology, and Life Fellow of Girton College, University of Cambridge. She made her name with comparative theorizing on Melanesia (The Gender of the Gift), and (as in After Nature) with critical interventions in debates stimulated by the Western paradigms of nature-culture and individual-society.
