Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology

The Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology (ISCA) is a leading centre for anthropological teaching and research in the UK and the world. Originally established as the only centre in the UK specialising in postgraduate teaching and research within the discipline, it continues to supervise large numbers of graduate and research students. The department came top of the Power Rankings for Anthropology in the UK in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise and received a score of 5 in the 2001 equivalent exercise. Research in ISCA is particularly broad based, including not only traditional ethnographic specialisms in social anthropology, but also thematic specialisms such as visual anthropology, material anthropology and museum ethnography, medical anthropology, and cognitive and evolutionary anthropology. The Institute's links with the Pitt Rivers Museum contribute a particular strength in material culture and the anthropology of representations. In 2001, the ESRC Centre on Migration Policy and Society (COMPAS) was established within within the School of Anthropology. COMPAS is now responsible for considerable research and an MPhil programme in Migration Studies.
