UCC Announces New Anthropology Course

There is a new MA Anthropology course at University College Cork. The MA Anthropology has an interdisciplinary identity. Its uniqueness rests on two pillars: it ascribes to the ethnographic perspective on culture, society and politics, and it proposes an anthropology that extends to political, cultural and social theory. These two characteristics – ethnographic training combined with a solid theoretical grounding – represent the strengths of the two research centres within which it is based: the Moral Foundations of Economy and Society Research Centre (MFES) and the Marginalised and Endangered Worldviews Study Centre (MEWSC), both based at UCC.

The programme will employ conventional classroom pedagogy combined with options for attending summer school (Italy/Ireland) or winter schools (India) and fieldwork placements with global partner institutions (Latin America, Europe). A bursary is available to students to avail of one of these options.

Anthropology is uniquely well placed to provide an analysis of our contemporary local and global situation. Recent and ongoing political and economic crises bring into sharp relief the need to foreground anthropological perspectives and expertise, to the benefit of the social sciences and public life.
