Research at The Department of Social Anthropology is organized in research groups that have a general perspective on research, education and communication.  One main focus is the global south, with themes such as global inequality, livelihoods in the south and sustainable development. Our Research also includes modern Western organisations. Multicultural labour and working life and global systems of production are examined with the application of ethnographic methods. The Department also has a social anthropological approach to technology. Technological development and implementation of new technology are studied within the frame of our modern, global context and with a focus on cultural implications of technological changes.
