Education in Culture

Humans acquire culture through education, and the content, method and organization of education is determined by culture. The Education in Culture research unit (EiC) examines this complex interplay between education and culture by investigating a wide range of issues concerning upbringing, education and training in formal, non-formal and information settings, mainly from historical, philosophical, theoretical and intercultural perspectives.

Our research is interdisciplinary, and uses insights from Pedagogical and Educational Sciences, Historical Sciences, Literary Studies, Philosophy, Sociology, and Psychology. For researchers, we thus provide a stimulating environment in educational research that includes sub-fields such as history of education, philosophy of education, gender studies, migration studies, and life-long learning. For students, we provide courses on bachelor and master level that includes the master-track Ethics of Education: Philosophy, History and Law
