Continously evolving since it first went online in 1996, ‘Engaging with the world’ presents Thomas Hylland Eriksen's writings, research and miscellaneous activities, such as music and podcasting. A social anthropologist by training, Eriksen reads, writes and talks in many genres about the contemporary world, what it means to be human and how you and I can make the world a slightly better place. Many of his writings about contemporary and timeless issues, ranging from Darwinian selection and information technology to the climate crisis and cultural diversity, are available on this site. The Norwegian-language subsite can be accessed here.
