It is dedicated to examining - from the combined vantagepoint of both the human and the social sciences - cultural, political and communica- tive issues on a spectrum ranging from the local dimension over the national and the regional to the processes of globalisation that increasingly impinge on the organisation of life and the structure and dynamics of the world. The thematic issues range from questions of European identity and integration; over transnational processes of migration, subcultures and international marketing; to transatlantic problems or nationalism and religion in Eastern Europe or the USA. What ties them together within the framework of SPIRIT is the school's distinctive features: Analysing themes in the context of the meanings and implications of internationality, and taking cultural/communicative as well as politi- cal/sociological aspects into account. Considerable emphasis is placed on Europe - its history, politics, social anthropology, place in the world, relations to global issues, and trajectories for the future. On this background research is conducted within four thematic areas: J. Studies ofldentity, Mentality and Culture 2. Intercultural Cooperation in International Markets and Organisations 3. Migration, Spatial Change and the Globalisation of Cultures 4. International Politics
