In the disciplinary history of Social and Cultural Anthropology, there has been a momentous transformation when anthropologists’ earlier focus on non-modern, non-Western societies increasingly shifted towards the study of post-colonial social formations involving mass media communication and complex connectivities.

At the University of Constance, Social and Cultural Anthropology is understood as a discipline at the intersection between the social sciences and the humanities that employs primarily qualitative methodologies to explore varied ways of constituting sociality, culturality, "identity" and "alterity", in so doing, taking account of the contextual and conflictual nature of the sociocultural negotiations involved in these processe.
