The Research Area “Cultural Encounters – Cultural Conflicts” is an association of various disciplines in the humanities and the social sciences, which investigates diverse forms of cultural contact.

We understand and analyze culture as a dynamic source of creativity and a space that can give rise to something new, but also as a source of conflict, including violence and war.

We view our research as

  • a reflective process that is not restricted to specific topics but also focuses on the role of knowledge and scholarship therein;
  • a collaboration of various disciplines that each contribute their own skills while learning and drawing from each other;
  • and a contribution to a critical public dialogue on topical social and political questions.
