Affiliated Departments and Institutions

Next to the GCSC’s affiliation to the faculties of Social Sciences, History, Language, Literature and Culture, the centre is also involved in active cooperations with the Centre for Media and Interactivity (ZMI), the Centre for Eastern European Studies (GiZo) and other research groups or PhD programmes at JLU.

From its outstanding position among the four doctoral programmes joined in the Graduate Centre, the GCSC has initiated cooperative relationships with several other renowned research institutions situated at JLU. These interconnections with a wide variety of programmes contribute substantially to a thriving academic community in the study of culture.

The cooperating institutions focus on clearly delineated key topics in the study of culture that complement particular areas of the GCSC’s wide-ranging profile. The partners include the the Centre for Media and Interactivity and the Giessen Centre for Eastern European Studies. Each of these institutions adds a variety of interdisciplinary perspectives from their members’ particular backgrounds.
