Marshall Sahlins (U of M Professor of Anthropology)
Marshall Sahlins was a Professor of Anthropology at the University of Michigan from 1956-1967. He developed the idea of a "teach-in" which led to the 1965 Teach-in at U of M. He led, participated and organized the 1965 Teach-in as well as the National Teach-in that followed soon after. He left U of M in 1967 and spent the next two years in France where he continued to protest the Vietnam War. Following his time in France, he accepted a position in the Anrthopology Department at the University of Chicago. Professor Sahlins is currently a Charles F. Grey Distinguished Service Professor of Anthropology Emeritus at the University of Chicago.
