About Us



“Relations of Difference – Dynamics of Conflict in Global Perspective” is an interdisciplinary research initiative based at the Humanities Faculty of Leibniz University Hannover (LUH).

On application by the participating scientists a larger research project within the University can be established as an interdisciplinary research initiative by the Presidential Executive Committee of the Leibniz Universität Hannover. We were delighted to find out in November 2009 that "Relations of Difference - Dynamics of Conflict in Global Perspective" was granted this title.

Our research attends to diverse functions and meanings of “difference” in specific conflict constellations and dynamics.

In 2009 we organised an international congress that addressed the main questions of our research topic. In the upcoming winter term we offer a colloquium dealing with social practices and constructions of urbanity. For further information please follow the links on your left side.
