Dr. Tristram Riley-Smith is the author of “The Cracked Bell”, an analysis of the 21st century United States that draws on his training as a social anthropologist at the Cambridge University and his three-year posting as Counsellor in the British Embassy in Washington, DC. His talk explores the relevance of ethnography to a modern Western democracy and what anthropologists can teach us about ourselves.
