Cultural Research

The researchers participating in the research initiative Cultural Research aim at livening up the cultural studies’ theoretical self-understanding. By linking research and teaching, they intend to give a cutting edge to the characteristic profile of the Lüneburg Cultural Studies.

Main Areas of Research

Furthermore, all three profile emphases share a common point in the fact that they have been institutionalized to a high degree by institutions and cross-faculty research centers. Larger, externally funded projects are established in all these areas or are currently in an advanced application phase.
