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 mission of the JFZ is to support innovative research, and to establish connections between researchers across disciplines and national borders. The Center adresses multiple audiences inside and outside academia with the research findings in the Humanities, Cultural Studies and Social Sciences. In aggregate, the overall purpose of the JFZ is to strengthen and intensify research in the Humanities, Cultural Studies and Social Sciences at the University of Augsburg.

 

The JFZ was created in 2012. The foundation reflects the idea of a “Networking University”, which was introduced at the University of Augsburg by the president, Dr. Sabine Doering-Manteuffel. The JFZ contributes to sharpening the university’s profile by concentrating the local key areas of expertise into a unitary institution, helping to position the university within the academic landscape worldwide.

 

Research at the JFZ takes both a transnational and interdisciplinary approach to work on substantial problems faced by a globalized society. Likewise, research findings are published on a national and an international level.
