Social Science and Ethics Research Group

The Social Science and Ethics Group works to develop a platform for the collaborative study of both the social science of ethics and the ethics of social science. We aim both to foster interdisciplinary explorations of this area and provide a forum for the dissemination of of ongoing research through workshops, seminar series, and network-building.

Autumn 2020 Workshop: Methodologies in the Anthropology of Ethics

This workshop will examine the question of whether the expanding sub-field of the anthropology of ethics requires any special methodologies: how – if at all –anthropological enquiry into ethics should deviate from traditional ethnography and what methodological approaches should be applied to understanding morality in human social life. More details.
