Lines of investigation

The UCN-UTA Doctoral Program has defined six priority lines of research, based on the topics addressed by the researchers that make up the academic body, as well as the relevance that these topics have in contemporary anthropological sciences. Some lines of research are quite consolidated, since they have a longer history and trajectory. Meanwhile, other lines have a more recent development, but are relevant within the current panorama of anthropological research.
