Culture, Mobility and Power (CAMP)

CAMP encompasses researchers in the Department of Anthropology who analyse the cultural, religious, economic, policy and gendered dimensions of power relations; and the political aspects of cultural, religious, social, economic and other processes.

Conflict, power and politics

CAMP’s anthropological approaches share a basis in ethnography, and have in common a focus on power, culture and mobility as social processes that are deeply intertwined in everyday life. Read the full description below.










Researches affiliated with the group are currently involved in a number of projects (the list is not complete):

The Culture, Mobility and Power (CAMP) researcher group is inviting applications to participate in CAMP from MA students in anthropology who are interested in any of the topics covered by the researcher group. Membership would entitle you to participate in academic seminars, retreats and other events, and would be a way to explore, or prepare for, an eventual academic career.

If you are interested, please send an application of 400 words (one page) max. to Henrik Vigh:

The application should cover main features in your CV; a brief description of your master’s topic and its connection to the CAMP themes; and your expectations/aspirations for the future as an anthropologist.
