On Tuesday 23 April, The King presented the Anders Retzius Gold Medal at a ceremony at the Royal Palace of Stockholm. The recipient of the medal was Paul Stoller, Professor of Anthropology at West Chester University in the USA.
Professor Stoller received the award for his work in connection with international anthropology, and in particular for his pioneering contributions and influential publications within the fields of religious, visual, sensory and economic anthropology. The Swedish Society for Anthropology and Geography (SSAG) is the body responsible for the award. The King is patron of the society. SSAG recognised Professor Stoller with a symposium in spring 2013.
