We also work actively to develop strong and competitive interdisciplinary research that can contribute towards creating a complete environment where research and education work in partnership at different levels.
We are convinced that successful cooperation between the department’s various disciplines can lead to research synergies, form a multidisciplinary creative climate and thus contribute towards enhanced competitiveness in the struggle for external research funding and interesting researchers, doctoral students and students at first- and second-cycle levels.
Based on existing research at the department and plans for forthcoming research initiatives, seven department-wide research areas have been crystallised. These are concretised in seminar series, courses and research projects, and can also be developed into research profiles.
- Children, childhood, and cultural practices (BABAKUL)
- Digital humanities
- Life writing
- Literature and religion
- Philosophy, culture and health
- Environmental humanities
- Poetry as Knowledge Form
