The Department of European Ethnology brings together a wide range of research activities involving all status groups: from study projects, in which the students are already introduced to research-based learning in the Master's program, to dissertation projects and postdoctoral/habilitation projects. In recent years, a large number of third-party funded projects have been acquired from all major research institutions. In order to facilitate exchange between individual and team research projects as well as to offer results from ongoing research to the public, the staff members collaborate interdisciplinary in different working groups, faculty wide research groups and key research areas. In addition, there exist long-term collaborations in form of transnational networks, in which the research of the Department of European Ethnology is discussed, such as “Kulturwissenschaftliche Stadtforschung” or “Penser l’urbain par l’image”.
