The interaction between people under conditions of different cultural influences and practices, including the communicative challenges based on cultural similarities and differences, are the focal points of intercultural research.
With questions such as "How can culture be understood and conceptualized in today's complexity?" and "How does understanding succeed or fail?", concrete topics are derived to offer assistance and food for thought on contemporary social issues. For example, our doctoral students are currently investigating how events such as the corona pandemic are presented in an international framework; what role translations play in an intercultural context, for example in the context of refugee movements; or asking what resources lie in gaps in understanding.
