Anthropology at Queen’s University Belfast is taught in the School of History, Anthropology, Politics and Philosophy. We cover the breadth of social anthropology in teaching and research although we have specialised in ethnomusicology, the study of performance and creativity, boarder and migration, conflict and peacebuilding, religion, cognition and morality, and the use of ethnography in engagement for public policy. We encourage our students to study anthropology in interdisciplinary contexts, we share course with our colleagues in history, politics and philosophy and we work within the Senator George J. Mitchell Institute for Global Peace, Security and Justice, the Institute of Cognition and Culture and the Institute of Irish Studies.
