Department of Anthropology

Public Benefit

Research in Anthropology at Durham spans a wide range of activity from the production of knowledge to advance the discipline, to applied research for the public benefit. This has been a fundamental hallmark of our Department for many decades. On the pages below we showcase some of the projects in which we apply anthropological perspectives to create benefit for people both here in the UK and around the world. We engage with the public, external organisations, and public bodies in numerous ways to convey the importance of Anthropology to everyday life.
