Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology
We study the everyday practice of individuals, groups, and communities worldwide and at home to situate them within the complex processes of social and global change. In Leiden, we specialise in the impact of globalisation on environment, equity, and economy, and the ethnographic analysis of visual and material culture.
Our unique combination of interdisciplinary interest, a comparative area studies approach, and social scientific research methods positions us within a larger partnership of Leiden Institutes and links our research and teaching to the extensive interdisciplinary and international networks we are currently involved in.
