Subject of the project "Cultural Techniques. Operationality and Spatialization" (Kulturtechniken. Operationalität und Verräumlichung) deals with the reciprocal constitutional processes of knowledge and action from the perspective of a theory and history of cultural techniques. The specific focus in relation to previous approaches in cultural technology research is on the question of spatialization. This approach brings together in an innovative way the dynamic research fields of cultural technology and spatial research, which are pursued with great success and international visibility at the Universities of Erfurt and Weimar. The existing historical, literary and media studies competencies are specifically expanded by cultural studies expertise from other disciplines and internationally networked. The project serves in particular to prepare the ground for a DFG (Germen Research Foundation) Research Training Group or a comparable initiative to promote young researchers.
