• Institute of <br />Social and Cultural<br /> Anthropology

    Research is carried out by individuals but it is possible to identify four research clusters, in which staff discuss and compare similar projects. These are: ethnographic practices; visual and material anthropology; medical and ecological anthropology; and transnationalism and the anthropology of policy. The clusters reflect the environment and resources which have been developed at Oxford.

  • Institute of <br />Cognitive & Evolutionary <br />Anthropology

    Since the inception of modern anthropology, considerations of how human biology and natural ecology impact on human thought, behaviour, social structures and cultural expression have always occupied a central position in the discipline. However, the past decade has witnessed advances in the evolutionary and cognitive sciences that offer new opportunities to bridge the gap between social, cognitive and biological anthropology, placing them closer together than at any time in their respective histories. ICEA is also home to a well-established research cluster in cognitive anthropology known as the Centre for Anthropology and Mind (CAM). Currently, ICEA's largest research project focuses on 'Ritual, Community, and Conflict', supported by a Large Grant from the ESRC
