Field of Focus 3: Cultural Dynamics in Globalised Worlds

Querrolle 250x125


Research in this Field of Focus concentrates on the construction and dynamics of cultural spaces in order to better understand urgent problems of cultural identity, social and religious conflicts, and transcultural processes that are caused, for example, by accelerated mobility, migration or historical entanglements. The Faculties of Modern Languages, Philosophy, and Theology will identify common topics as a focus for their research and then collaborate in several interdisciplinary research networks, such as the Excellence Cluster “Asia and Europe in a Global Context”.  Furthermore, the central interdisciplinary research organisations in the three faculties involved are to be integrated.

Research in interdisciplinary and intercultural anthropology and ethics requires intensive cooperation of the life, cultural, behavioural and social sciences. In addition to the transcultural studies programmes already established, the Interdisciplinary Forum for Biomedicine and Cultural Studies (IFBK) and the Research Center for International and Interdisciplinary Theology (FIIT) will join in close association with the research group on subjectivity formed in 2010.
