Section of Educational Anthropology and Cultural Studies

About us

The section of Educational Anthropology and Cultural Studies is located at the Faculty of Education of the University of Lower Silesia. It was established in 2011 with a mission to develop courses, educational and research programs and projects focused on exploring the mutual relationship between culture and education.

Educational anthropology undertakes theoretically informed research into the socio-cultural context of learning and teaching in its institutional and informal aspects with a broad commitment to investigating minority, subaltern and excluded groups in education and to understanding its cross-cultural, global significance. The leading themes of educational anthropology are the processes of production, transmission and acquisition of culture through learning; the role of the school in identity formation; the interaction of minority and dominant groups in education, and the problem of cultural reproduction and cultural change produced in the processes of teaching and learning.
The section has a creative research culture based on the shared interests of the staff comprised of internationally recognized scholars and younger academics whose work builds on the fields of education, philosophy, sociology, anthropology, psychology, critical theory and literary studies.

For further information, please also see recent and forthcoming publications of our staff, our research projects, our research seminars and workshops.
