The doctoral programme in Culture and Global Studies


The doctoral programme Culture and Global Studies is an interdisciplinary research training programme for PhD fellows who conduct research within the frame of culture and globalisation, in a contemporary as well as historical perspective. The programme includes humanities and social science approaches to the research area of culture and global studies covering cultural, political and socio-economic processes on local, national, transnational and global level. PhD projects at the CGS programme study topics which are essential for the understanding of historical and contemporary processes in which their origin, contexts, conflicts and consequences are investigated. Research themes range from transnational phenomena and international affairs, intercultural and intraregional issues to changeable identities and everyday life experience.
