The triennial research project is heuristically subdivided into three research areas that, depending on the respective research questions and the methods employed, is being carried out in different constellations of the participating disciplines.





Conceptually, the project is structured into four main points, which are interrelated by a study group, focusing on socio-cultural affiliations:
