Movements, Actors and Representations of Globalisation
The International Research Training Group ‘Between Spaces. Movements, Actors and Representations of Globalisation’, sponsored by the German Research Foundation (DFG), opens new perspectives for globalisation research in the social sciences and the humanities. By developing a dialogue between disciplines and diverse scholarly traditions in Germany and Mexico, the research programme and the study programme seek to contribute to a transnational and interdisciplinary field of study. Main focuses of the IRTG are movements between various regions of the world and the new spaces to which this has given and is giving rise in past and present stages of globalisation.
Renewal of the Research Training Group for 4,5 years
On November 8, 2013, the Senate and the Appropriations Committee of the German Research Foundation decided in favour of an extension of the International Research Training Group ‘Between Spaces’ for another period of four and a half years. The committee thus followed the suggestion of the reviewers who gave the IRTG a very positive evaluation as part of an inspection. Naturally all the members of the IRTG are very happy about the decision, which may be regarded as recognition of our successful work over the last four years. We are very pleased that our joint German-Mexican research work and training for doctoral students can be continued.
