The Department of Culture and Global Studies is a cross-faculty department linking together The Faculty of Humanities and the Faculty of Social Sciences. Department researchers and lecturers draw on theories and methods from both the social sciences and the humanities in their efforts to understand culture and society: inter-human relations, relations between cultures, local and global relations, relations between the past and the future.
Department of Culture and Global Studies
Research activities within the Department of Culture and Global Studies cover a wide span, emphasising the interplay between cultural, social and political processes in a globalised world, and with a special focus on intercultural communication, transnational relations, creation of identity and the production of culture. Research at the department is organised in research groups and academic networks.
CGS has around 45 PhD students in the department’s two research training programmes Interdisciplinary Discourse Studies and Culture and Global Studies. These PhD students are investigating various fields of research from perspectives of discourse and culture studies, as well as transnational, cultural, political and economic processes.
The distinctive feature of the School of Culture and Global Studies is that its programmes are directed ‘towards the world’ – including Danish, Nordic, European and global perspectives. The programmes of the School focus on the interplay between global elements and national/regional relations – e.g. history and politics, cultural text studies, professional communication, media and language studies.

Invitation til seminar: "Hvordan bliver man hørt i Bruxelles?"
’Bruxelles er en lukket klub, lang, langt væk!’. Sådan kan det føles, men det svarer ikke helt til virkeligheden. EU-systemet er langt mere åbent end de fleste tror.
