ISEK - Department of Social Anthropology and Cultural Studies Social and Cultural Anthropology

What does it mean to be human in a global world?

What do people in diverse places share and how do they differ? How can we understand the relation between nature and culture? What makes societies change and how do people cope with such social transformations?

The research and teaching at the ISEK - Social Anthropology in Zurich reflect this wide range of study areas. The Department has a strong regional focus on Asia, but our researchers also conduct fieldwork in Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
