Research Research themes

Facets of cultures, past & present

This research priority is home to a wide range of disciplines, from History, the Arts, Literatures and Cultures, American Studies, and Media and Journalism Studies, to International Relations, Humanitarian Action and Area Studies. Beyond their distinct subject areas and approaches, these disciplines share their interest for culture as the practices through which, now as in the past, humans define and negotiate their values, organize their societies, manage diversity, and reflect on impactful changes. While mainly centred around Western culture from classical antiquity to the present day, it also pays special attention to e merging areas such as China and South-East Asia, Russia, Mexico and Canada.
