Transcultural Studies

Welcome to the Department of Transcultural Studies

Transcultural Studies at the HSG explore contemporary cultural and social transformations from an ethnographic, comparative and genealogical perspective. The particular foci lie on (im)mobility/migration and borders; inequality and redistribution; and education (see also Research).

In our approach, Transculturality represents a heuristic to grasp forms of transnational/-local/-generational mobilities and connections and their histories; and engage with (emic) notions of culture while being attentive towards power, inequalities and related practices of culturalization and cultural essentialism.
