With the Research Forum, the WBKolleg provides open platforms for the scientific exchange between researchers at the faculty working on related topics. It is to be understood as a “Market Place of Ideas” with a laboratory atmosphere, a low level of institutionalization, and great voluntary commitment. Its aim is the development of innovative fields and the facilitation of “bottom-up” research.
Currently, there are five research platforms:
Prof. Rippl – Prof. Schäuble – Prof. Thurner – Prof. Vauthier: "Auto-Bio-Graphy – Historiographic Perspectives on Ego Documents/Personal Testimonies in Literature and the Visual and Performative Arts" since 2017
Prof. Purtschert - Prof. Thurlow: "Visualizing 'Diversity' in Higher Education: Looking Beyond the Image" since 2017
