Section “Humanities and Educational Research”
To meet the social challenges of our age, one must first acquire knowledge of the historic and cultural foundations of human co-existence. Research conducted in the fields of the humanities, cultural studies and educational science generates this knowledge and communicates it to the public at large. This represents a fundamental contribution to our understanding of our complex society. The Section “Humanities and Educational Research” of the Leibniz Association pools the expertise of leading research institutes in the fields of educational sciences and linguistics, history and cultural studies; of institutions offering and continuously developing key research infrastructures; and of major research museums with unique collections relevant to the humanities, cultural studies and engineering sciences.
