The Faculty of Arts and Humanities offers an exceptionally broad range of disciplines with a strong focus on pre- and early history, ancient and medieval studies, linguistics and literary studies as well as non-European languages, African Studies and Digital Humanities. Apart from the individual research within the academic framework of the faculty’s numerous institutes, most research is conducted interdisciplinarily, uniting scholars from various disciplines in a prolific research environment.
At the Morphomata International Center for Advanced Studies, up to ten fellows from different countries and specialties from the arts and humanities cooperate with researchers from Cologne in the analysis of cultural figurations. This dialogue with international academics allows the Center to function as a new locus of research in the Humanities – a think tank where interdisciplinary and intercultural perspectives can be brought to the fore. Morphomata is sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
