Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology

The thematic field Cultural and Social Anthropology compares the plethora of forms of human co-existence in different places and at different times. Transnational and international processes linked to Colonialism, Globalisation and the world-wide flows of migration of the present, such as the redefinition of identity and cultural boundaries, are at the centre of research.

Head of Department:

Univ.-Prof. Dr. Peter Schweitzer
