The chair of British Cultural Studies has a double focus: on the one hand, a historical perspective is employed to investigate the cultural history of Great Britain and its former colonies. On the other hand, the theoretical discussion of established as well as newly emerging approaches in cultural studies is an important part of the curriculum. These theoretical foundations are informed by an understanding of the transdisciplinary nature of cultural studies, which in turn leads to an analysis of the different dimensions of culture as well as their practical application to various fields.
