Audrey I. Richards
Audrey Isabel Richards (1899-1984). Antropóloga y educadora inglesa conocida por sus investigaciones y trabajos aplicados entre varios pueblos de África del Este en alimentación, nutrición, agricultura y economía. Luego de pasar su adolescencia en la India, viajó a Inglaterra, donde estudió ciencias naturales y obtuvo un doctorado en la London School of Economics con la orientación funcionalista de Bronisław Malinowski. Bajo la administración colonial británica se desempeñó como profesora en la Universidad de Witwatersrand en Johannesburgo y en la Universidad de Makerere; en Uganda dirigió el East African Institute of Social Research. También se desempeñó como docente en la Universidad de Cambridge, donde fundó el Centro de Estudios Africanos en 1965. Sus investigaciones, basadas en el trabajo de campo intensivo, están compiladas en varios libros: Hunger and Work in a Savage Tribe (1932); Land, Labour and Diet in Northern Rhodesia (1939); Chisungu: A Girl’s Initiation Ceremony among the Bemba of Northern Rhodesia (1956) y The Multicultural States of East Africa (1969). Con la reproducción de este texto clásico, la RCA rinde homenaje a una pionera de la disciplina.
