LSE’s Department of Anthropology is world famous and world leading, ranked top Anthropology department in the UK in the Guardian League Tables 2018. Anthropology has been taught at the LSE since 1904. Many of the most important figures in anthropology's history (Malinowski, Firth, Leach, Gell, Bloch, and many others) have worked and/or studied at the LSE.
An emphasis on long-term anthropological fieldwork has always been a hallmark, and continues to be a strength, of the Department. Most members of staff, in addition to their responsibilities to students, conduct ongoing field research, which engages both with new research agendas and with well-established anthropological debates.
On this three-week intensive programme, you will engage with and learn from full-time lecturers from the LSE’s anthropology faculty.
