Jakob-Fugger-Zentrum. Center for Advanced Transnational Studies
The Jakob-Fugger-Zentrum (JFZ) is the Center for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, Cultural Studies and Social Sciences at the University of Augsburg. The JFZ’s foremost goal is to support innovative research, and to establish connections between researchers across disciplines and national borders. The Center also seeks to highlight and communicate innovative research findings in the Humanities, Cultural Studies and Social Sciences multiple to audiences inside and outside academia. The JFZ’s main purpose is to strengthen and encourage research in the Humanities, Cultural Studies and Social Sciences at the University of Augsburg.
The JFZ was created in 2012. Its foundation reflects the idea of a “Networking University”, introduced by the University of Augsburg’s then newly elected president, Dr. Sabine Doering-Manteuffel. Thus, the JFZ aims to contribute to the university’s academic profile by connecting the local key areas of expertise under the guidance of a central institution, helping to strengthen the university’s position within the worldwide academic landscape.
Research at the JFZ takes both a transnational and interdisciplinary approach to work on the substantial problems faced by a globalized society. Likewise, research findings are published on a national and an international level.
