Morphomata International Center for Advanced Studies – Genesis, Dynamics and Mediality of Cultural Figurations (KHK-Morphomata)
University of Cologne
The “Morphomata International Center for Advanced Studies – Genesis, Dynamics and Mediality of Cultural Figurations” is one of the international Käte Hamburger Centers sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research under the auspices of the initiative “Freedom for Research in the Humanities” (project number 01UK1505).
Up to ten fellows from different countries and specialties cooperate with researchers from Cologne in the analysis of cultural change. 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. The Center’s fellows further enrich university life through lectures open to the public, as well as their participation in conferences and publications. Besides the establishment of an international academic network, the Center also aims to foster the associations between cultural and educational institutions as well as the local media, and promoting this openness through exhibitions and events.
