ARTES research engages with political, intellectual and institutional cultures in their national and transnational dimensions, as well as with questions of cultural, linguistic and religious identities, and their representations in music, the visual and performing arts, and literature. Bringing together scholars from different disciplinary backgrounds, research conducted within ARTES analyses how global encounters shape the making of world regions and their inhabitants – from formal and long-standing colonial and post-colonial encounters to myriad networks of material and intellectual exchange. In geographic terms, the school spans regions as diverse as Europe, the Mediterranean, the Near East, Eurasia and Latin America.
