Gruppenfoto 2017

The Collaborative Research Centre (SFB) 948 “Heroes – Heroizations – Heroisms: Transformations and Conjunctures from Antiquity to the Modern Day” studies the heroic as a social phenomenon from a long-term perspective that is transculturally as well as synchronically and diachronically comparative. The SFB 948 specifically focuses on the social orders that are stabilized but also brought into question by heroic figures. The research centre is currently in its second funding period, running from July 2016 to June 2020. The first funding period ran from July 2012 until June 2016.
