Around the world, human beings organise their social lives and relationships to the environment in a remarkable variety of ways. Social Anthropology focuses on what it means to be human in both local and global terms, ranging from everyday routines that give meaning to lives in particular places to the momentous historical trends affecting all humanity. Very importantly, it also helps us to reflect on what this fascinating diversity of ways of being human means for our understanding of ourselves.
Through a series of interactive workshops, you will learn to think about the world as anthropologists do and question what it means to be human. You will have the opportunity to put current students on the spot, get inspired by stories of anthropologists' research and gain an understanding of a unique and fascinating subject.
