The project aims to make innovative contemporary concepts from intercultural German studies productive for the partner universities by considering interculturality as an epistemological principle.
The primary object of the project is cooperation, primarily in research, but also in teaching in the field of intercultural German studies, with special emphasis on the linguistic subject component. Important areas of activity: Annual conferences and joint research and publications. Special support is given to young researchers; in this sense, joint supervision of dissertations takes place in order to achieve an international synergy effect.
Central research focuses are lexicology/lexicography, phraseology and bi- or multilingualism against the background of intercultural German linguistics.
The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) is supporting the 2021 research project for another year with 40,000 euros.
