The International Research Training Group 1864 (IRTG 1864) “Diversity – Mediating Difference in Transcultural Spaces” (member since 2013) investigates cultural, religious, ethnic and socio economic differentiation in ‘modern’ Euro-Atlantic societies along three dimensions of research: spatial exclusion and inclusion processes, social practices of accommodation and resistance, and communicative strategies by which diversity is represented and negotiated.
The International Research Training Group offers young researchers a comprehensive research program in the areas of diversity, multiculturalism and transnationalism. With its focus on dynamic processes that generate diversity, the analytical framework offers new perspectives for regional history as well as for intercultural and transnational research.
