Research in Social  Anthropology

Social  Anthropology at the University of Tampere focuses on social and cultural processes in the globalised world.  Anthropologists working in Tampere share an interest in observing the social reality transnationally, that is, across  boundaries  of nation states  while simultaneously acknowledging the fact that nation states  also play a crucial role in  shaping the  contexts we study.


Our research projects  address highly various phenomena such as different forms of human mobilities, dispersed social groupings, multiculturalism, racism and anti-racism, questions of belonging, childhood, youth, socialization, intergenerational relations and aging, administrative cultures, social memories, diasporic and transnational subjectivities,  as well as  epistemological questions related to production of  ethnographic knowledge .  However, a common thread runs through our research:  we study people’s responses to increasingly globalised cultural, social, economic and political factors that mould contemporary cultures and societies around the world.
