The research community in cultural analysis consists of more than 50 individual research projects/groups, and is organized into five interrelating constellations: Mediality, Arts & Aesthetics, Globalization and Migration, Identities, Cultural and Social Critique. These constellations are neither hierarchical nor disciplinary. Instead, each constellation is thematically organized and works with a particular set of intellectual concerns and research methods. Overlap between constellations is not only recognized but encouraged. Most research projects are affiliated with more than one constellation, and research staff frequently participate in multiple projects.
