Department of Social Anthropology


Research Overview


Research in the Department

The Department is home to a very wide range of research projects. We believe that the best research is done when individuals are free to follow their intellectual passions, so our research strategy is open and inclusive, and organised around the always developing individual interests of the University and College Teaching Officers who work here. At present, we are particularly committed to pursuing research in five broad research clusters - Morality, Subjectivity, Emotion; Political Life, Crisis and Possibilities; Environment, Infrastructure, and CareMateriality, Knowledge and Media; and Economy, Work, and Social Reproduction - but these are not at all exhaustive and at any given time there are a number of diverse Research Projects hosted in the Department. 

Applications for externally funded research

The Department welcomes post-doctoral researchers who wish to conduct research with us. For details about how to apply, please see
