Cultural Anthropologists and Ethnologists want to understand people and the way they organize socially, politically and culturally. Through long term fieldwork and ethnographic writing, we create knowledge about social forms and cultural expressions in Sweden and Europe, Latin America, Africa, Asia and Melanesia. 

Researcher of the Month

To highlight the interesting and important research that is produced at the department, we will dive into a new researcher portrait every month. The first is Sverker Finnström! 

Existential fears, global wars and to see cracks in the narrative of good versus evil

War and death are themes that cultural anthropologist Sverker Finnström investigates in his research. Issues that can teach us something about human's universal thoughts about life and our place in the world. Starting with the civil war in Uganda, his research has taken him through time and space to Asia during the Second World War. He can also see parallels to Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
