The International Diploma in Anthropological Theories in Latin American and the Caribbean (DITAL
C) is offered by the Universidad Alberto Hurtado, Santiago de Chile, in agreement with the Escuela IDAES - Universidad Nacional de San Martín, Argentina.

Its aim is to project an area of systematic studies on the epistemological, theoretical, historical and social conditions in which Latin American anthropologists have used, produced and tested theoretical elaborations of different origins, to raise and understand national, subnational and regional problems with theoretical and empirical support. This proposal integrates teachers and students from different Latin American and Caribbean academic circles in the mutual recognition and guided and creative analysis of the processes of theoretical-conceptual production, especially of those based on ethnographic research and published in journals, books, edited volumes thematic selections, and new formats for social media.

Main goal

To develop a Latin American and Caribbean academic environment for the systematic training of researchers, teachers and cultural managers in the knowledge, recovery, reflection, analysis, application, and generation of anthropological theories in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Specific goals 

(i) To become familiar with the theoretical horizons of anthropology developed in Latin America and the Caribbean,

(ii) To reflect anthropologically and critically on the analysis of ethnographic situations of the continental reality,

(iii) To help young scholars to undertake anthropological research at the regional level, from Latin American and Caribbean theoretical perspectives; and

(iv) To apply the knowledge acquired in cultural intermediation and management scenarios.


Candidates must have graduated in bachelor's degrees and professorships in the social sciences, the humanities, communications, and arts. They may be interested in doing research, teaching, management, and intervention in public and private projects related to Latin American populations.
