SoCuM Research Center promotes interdisciplinary research cooperation between Social and Cultural Studies at Mainz University.
The center aims to unlock the potential of an enduring network between Social and Cultural Studies. For this purpose, SoCuM enables the amalgamation of working groups (“AGs”) in which specific research interests are examined. Furthermore, the center initiates and supports a wide range of events for example, the annual Georg Forster Lectures or the biennial Symposium of Social and Cultural Studies, Mainz.
International stimuli are brought to Mainz through invitations to SoCuM Fellows and guest lecturers.SoCuM Scholarships for outstanding Ph.D. candidates ensure the continuous development of interdisciplinary research between social and cultural studies.
