The research at the Department of Social Anthropology comprises several subjects. Many of our researchers are interested in related topics and we currently have seven research groups. More information will come on this web page.
Human-made toxic threats have become a central theme in Social Anthropology. At SAI, we approach toxicity from various perspectives to rethink our ways of knowing, writing, and doing anthropology.
This group seeks to ethnographically explore the performative effect of ascribing ‘dependence’ to others as a means of politically shaping the world we live in.
‘Forms of Ethnography’ is an attempt to foster experimentation with the form of ethnographic work, including but not limited to writing, photo and film, exhibitions, book design, drawing, performance, conceptual art, dance, collaborative practice, across our department and involving colleagues from elsewhere.
