Research networks and programs

Created: Thursday, 01 June 2017 21:34

 

 

The Department of Social Anthropology is actively involved in international research and academic networks. Faculty members of the Department hold longstanding affiliations with academic institutions, worldwide, and are involved in international research projects funded by the European Commission, the Mellon Foundation and other funding bodies. The Department’s research and academic network was further expanded by a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the School of Social Development and Public Policy, Fudan University, China.

Former students and research affiliates have built on the Department’s research network and have conducted fieldwork in countries such as Bulgaria, Serbia, Albania, Turkey, Russia, USA, Japan, Iran, Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Ethiopia, Egypt, Syria and Palestine. Their research has been supported by scholarships from Greece, as well as important international funding organizations.

In this context, numerous conferences, workshops, seminars and public lectures are organized by the Department, on a regular basis, in which well-known social anthropologists, doing cutting-edge research, present their work.

The research and academic activities of the Department are further enhanced and supported by the recently established Anthropological Research Laboratory. The aim of the Laboratory is to promote the development of theoretical and methodological interdisciplinary exchanges, in order to explore the new and emerging tendencies of doing, writing and perceiving anthropology today.
