Research at the Intersection of Culture and Society

From medieval history to multilingualism

By integrating cutting-edge approaches into more traditional humanities research domains, we strive to produce critical knowledge on contemporary issues in a changing world. Our multi-faceted research is organised in seven research institutes and the transversal Culture & Computation Lab.

We recognize the importance of engaging with a diverse range of stakeholders, including academic institutions, partner associations, and the broader public. To this end, we are dedicated to the dissemination of our research findings and to critically contribute to understandings of past, present, and future social challenges.
