Study and Research Focus

In our Department, education on all levels is closely connected to current research, covering the entire disciplinary range of the field. Thematic study and research foci include:

  • archaeological research
  • maya writing
  • ethnohistory of the Andes and Mesoamerica
  • Amerindian languages
  • anthropology of the Amazon
  • museum anthropology
  • visual anthropology

In all these areas anthropological questions and core topics define the basis of our research and teaching, which include in particular processes of cultural change, identity/ethnicity, transculturality and subaltern discourses.
