Mobile Cultures and Societies

The research platform Mobile Cultures and Societies. Interdisciplinary Studies on Transnational Formations has been established in 2014 and prolonged in 2018. The platform, which is led by Univ.-Prof. Alexandra Ganser-Blumenau (Department of English and American Studies), is supported by the Faculty of Philological and Cultural Studies and the Faculty of Social Sciences. The platform's doc.funds doctoral program "Cultural Mobility Studies" is funded by the FWF since 2019.

The aim of the research platform is to establish and constitute a conceptually differentiated scientific space to examine phenomena, conditions and effects of cultural and social mobility. The platform combines different disciplinary approaches, theories and methods to develop new categories in regard to contents, structures and scientific tools in the field of mobility studies.
