Department of Anthropology


Sussex Anthropology has a reputation for world-class research and a commitment to studying global issues, including health, human rights, politics, the global economy and the environment.

All Sussex anthropologists conduct primary research, mainly through long-term ethnographic fieldwork, which leads to publications that include book-length monographs, or ethnographies, edited collections and journal articles.

We have a strong commitment to interdisciplinary, internationally collaborative and engaged research.
