Research and postgraduate studies

The Department of World Cultures welcomes research projects in the following core areas. While some of our postgraduate theses are also directed toward these fields, doctoral students with other interests should not feel discouraged from getting in touch with us.

Core research areas:

  • Cultural and linguistic diversity
  • Intercultural interaction
  • Conceptual studies
  • Area and cultural studies
  • Classical antiquity and classical philology
  • Global history
  • Comparative religion.

We have extensive expertise in all these fields, which enables co-operation across disciplinary and departmental borders.
