ISEK - Department of Social Anthropology and Cultural Studies

About the Department

The Department of Social Anthropology and Cultural Studies (ISEK), founded on 1 January 2014, incorporates the two research and teaching areas of Social and Cultural Anthropology and Popular Cultural Studies with the Ethnographic Museum, a university museum at the intersection of these two disciplines.

Numerous research projects, a wide range of courses offered at the BA, MA and doctorate level, and a museum make the ISEK an attractive research and teaching institution.

Eight professorships and 120 employees work under the management of the Heads of Departments at ISEK. More than 900 students are currently supervised in the different study programs of the ISEK.

The ISEK is housed at three locations.
