The Institute for Cultural Inquiry (ICON) is one of the four research institutes of the Faculty of Humanities. The researchers from the departments of Languages, Literature and Communication and Media and Culture Studies who belong to ICON are organised in the six research groups.

Interdisciplinary and international research

The members of these research groups often work together to explore issues concerning different facets of the role played by art, culture, and media in present-day society. Through their interdisciplinary projects, they contribute towards the university’s focus area's Cultures, Citizenship and Human Rights and Game Research, and to the strategic themes Institutions for Open Societies and Dynamics of Youth.

ICON scholars are also members of national research schools and are active in numerous international partnerships and networks in their various disciplines. Collaboration with other partners within society is also a key priority for ICON.
