At the Department of Cultural Sciences, research on culture and cultural expressions is pursued from a variety of perspectives.
The Department houses several aesthetic disciplines, studying different specific forms of expression both from a historical and a contemporary perspective. It also includes disciplines which apply various approaches to the study of broader aspects of human culture, often with an explicit focus on contemporary culture. Here we have gathered the research conducted at the department linked to one or some of our subjects: art history and visual studies, cultural studies, ethnology, film studies, gender studies and musicology. The subjects are listed in alphabetical order.
