Research at our Department
Our research is focused on highly various topics situated in different contexts in time and space. The three disciplines share a commitment to make the cultural and social world intelligible by means of fieldwork and studies of all kinds of textual sources.
Research is conducted in Sweden as well as abroad by all three disciplines, though History of Religions has, among other interests, a strong bent towards fieldwork in Asia, and Ethnologists have often specialised in Swedish culture, past and present.
Most of the researchers alternate between publishing in English and Swedish, preferring Swedish when they want to reach out to a wider audience and participate in current debate. All three subjects offer great opportunities to make such contributions.
