Social and Cultural Anthropology is a social science discipline that studies the variability of human cultures. Its specificity is based on a long tradition in the study of cultural diversity, research from a cultural perspective and interest in intercultural relations. Is also characterized by the use of ethnography based on participant observation as specific anthropological research tool.
Today, anthropology is presented as indispensable for the study of issues such as inequalities and ethnic identities, class, gender or age, cultural variations in social interactions and flows, the operation of transnational organizations, the analysis of contemporary retrofits of popular and traditional culture, or induced change situations that require dedicated action to address cultural diversity.
