The magazine "GoetheSpektrum" of the Goethe University Frankfurt reports about the Frobenius Institute and its profile. The article appears in a series in which the affiliated research and cultural institutes of the university are introduced.
The Frobenius Institute is significantly involved in the Collaborative Research Center "Resource Cultures: Socio-Cultural Dynamics in the Use of Resources" (SFB 1070) at the University of Tübingen. This is also reflected in the latest publications that will appear in 2021 and in which members of the Frobenius Institute are involved as co-editors and authors.
A group of scholars at Goethe University Frankfurt jointly investigates the theme of "Religious Dynamics in History and the Present" as a research alliance hosted at the Forschungskolleg Humanwissenschaften Bad Homburg, with the participation of Roland Hardenberg, Director of the Frobenius Institute.
