What is Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology?

Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology is the study of diverse societies worldwide with the aim of understanding the cultural complexity within those societies and the processes through which societies build connections with each other.

Global Connections concentrates on the world-wide movement of values, technologies, people, goods and images and its consequences for the ongoing transformation of social and cultural life in the current world. Such political economies of scale-making and the production of differences between human beings take place in changing landscapes of media, violence, cultural heritage, development policy and practice, social and religious movements, urban-rural relationships, and environmental concerns. They call for innovative research in situ that uses the classical concern with validity and ethics of ethnography to experiment with a variety of analytic methods from the humanities and with the emphasis on measurement and replicability of quantitative social science.
