Recently published work by Marilyn Strathern, former Chair of the Department of Anthropology at Cambridge, takes inspiration from John Wendel's previously published work in Anthropological Forum on property rights and identity in Micronesia and compares and contrasts the data with English school children forming a "queue" to formulate a sophisticated anthropological analysis of property and ownership.

Marilyn Strathern (1941-)

Mistress of Girton College 1998-2009
...
Marilyn Strathern was an undergraduate and then a research student at Girton, before holding posts in Canberra (ANU), Port Moresby, and UC Berkeley (visiting) before returning in the 1970s to a bye-fellowship at Girton. She moved to her first full departmental appointment in 1985 when she took up the position of chair and head of the Social Anthropology Department at Manchester University. Papua New Guinea has been a principal area of fieldwork, from 1964 to most recently in 2006, although she is also intrigued by developments in knowledge practices in the UK and Europe. Initial work on gender relations led to two directions: feminist scholarship & the new reproductive technologies (1980s -1990s), and legal systems & intellectual and cultural property (1970s, 1990s-00s). This is not the place to list publications: she likes writing. A Presidential Chair of the European Association of Social Anthropologists, former Trustee of the National Museums & Galleries on Merseyside, and an Honorary Fellow of Trinity College, she was knighted in 2001. The year 2007-8 was her last in the Faculty of Archaeology and Anthropology where she had been William Wyse Professor of Social Anthropology since 1993. She was elected lifetime President of the Association of Social Anthropologists of the UK and Commonwealth in 2008.
...
Marilyn Strathern has the strongest possible Girton connections.
...
In 2001, Professor Strathern was created DBE. In addition, she has received numerous national and international awards which include membership of learned societies (FBA 1987), honorary degrees, and medals. It is inappropriate to list them here but mention should be made of the award of the Viking Fund Medal by the International Wenner-Gren Foundation in 2003, which recognised that through her research, mentoring and service to the profession she had achieved 'high distinction' and had 'transformed the discipline', and of the Huxley Memorial medal, bestowed by the Royal Anthropological Institute for lifetime achievement at the highest level.
