Cultures of Vigilance. Transformations – Spaces – Practices
DFG: SFB 1369 – Integrated Research Training Group
The Collaborative Research Center (CRC) "Cultures of Vigilance" aims to analyse the history, cultural variations and current forms of vigilance. Within this context, "vigilance" refers to a linking of individual attentiveness to goals set by others. The CRC boasts researchers from the subjects of History, Social and Cultural Anthropology, European Ethnology, Turkish Studies, Legal History, Criminology, History of Medicine, North American Studies, German Medieval Studies, English Literature, Italian Literature, and Theater Studies.
The Integrated Research Training Group serves to support junior researchers in qualifying quickly and in a goal-oriented fashion. On the one hand, it makes use of the synergistic effects of a study program geared towards a common research objective, whilst, on the other hand, providing plenty of room for doctoral candidates to work on individual dissertations. Furthermore, it offers doctoral candidates various opportunities for further academic and vocational training, individual counselling and academic networking. Doctoral candidates aiming to spend a period of time abroad can benefit from the CRC's manifold collaborations with international partner universities.
