The University's theoretical and analytical interests include: development; markets and exchange systems; colonialism, globalisation and the transformation of traditional societies; symbolic and artistic systems; and visual anthropology. The College also focuses on: the anthropology of gender; popular culture; nationalism, post-colonialism and post-socialism; human health and ecology; kinship and social organisation; biosocial anthropology, and primatology. Other topics include: medical, nutritional and demographic anthropology; language and culture; religion and ritual; anthropology of emotion; urban societies; the history of anthropology; and rural change in Europe.
