The Elite Graduate Program “Ethics of Textual Cultures” is open to excellent students from anywhere who are interested in critically evaluating the correlation between languages, texts and cultures. This concerns questions of philosophical or theological backgrounds as well as linguistics (discourse-analysis), the media, politics and the cultures of everyday-life. Students will be integrated into international research.
What is important to us are theoretical approaches as well as historical aspects, leading to discussions of contemporary life, e.g. along the borders of neurosciences, ethics and religion. Furthermore, we try to combine methodological impulses from philological analysis with the scope of cultural studies.
