The research units at the Faculty Center – Historical Transregional Studies, Cultural Heritage, and Public History – connect the diverse fields of research and teaching offered by the Faculty of Historical and Cultural Studies. They create a forum where shared principles and connections as well as specific cultural and historical concepts are debated. By opening up dialogue between ongoing research projects and different disciplinary approaches, the Faculty Center aims to develop new perspectives on contemporary scientific, social, and political issues. Important issues include the historicization of spaces, objects, and disciplines, materiality and language, aesthetics, and technology as well as the practices of transfer and mediation. By engaging with these topics, we hope to trigger interdepartmental discussions and and create new ties between departments within the University of Vienna as well as on a national and international level.
