Division of Film Studies
The seminar is involved in various interdisciplinary research projects of the German Research Foundation (DFG), such as the Kolleg-Forschungsgruppe "Cinepoetics - Poetologien audiovisueller Bilder" and the Collaborative Research Center "Affective Societies" . It thus offers an outstanding research environment.
Film Studies deals with the history, aesthetics and theory of film and other audiovisual media as well as their conditions of creation and impact. It operates in an interdisciplinary field of intersection of the humanities and human sciences and deals with the interdependencies to different aesthetic (literature, theater, dance, music, painting and photography), cultural and social systems.
