Who We Are
The Institute for Culture and Society is an interdisciplinary research center that aims to address some of the great challenges facing contemporary societies by taking into account the contributions of the humanities and social sciences, with different fields of knowledge and distinct perspectives working hand-in-hand. Thus, the ICS brings together researchers from many disciplines who, in attending to contemporary problems, seek an interdisciplinary approach.
The research areas that especially contribute to this dialogue include biology, education, law, economics, philosophy, sociology, theology, anthropology, history, psychology, communication, medicine, nursing and political science.
