The department is at the forefront of digital anthropology, covering the materiality and sociality of digital media in different cultural contexts, along with innovative research on media and visuality.

Research on social media like Facebook and Instagram has probed new forms of social interaction and identity formation. Critical investigations of the political economy of mobile and digital infrastructure have complemented earlier studies on Internet and public spheres, online social activism and Internet development and globalisation. In media anthropology, studies have ranged from multi-sited research on foreign correspondents to ethnographies on art and literature. Researchers have also explored visual methods and emerging forms of visuality, resulting in films and online publications.
