Wide range of topics covered by new research units

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) will provide approximately 30.6 million in funding for 19 new Research Units over the next three years. This decision was reached by the Joint Committee at its meeting on 12 January 2006. The broad spectrum of topics demonstrates the attractiveness of the programme for all disciplines. The DFG currently funds 151 Research Units, in which several scientists from different disciplines collaborate on a specific research topic. The funding enables these units to provide the necessary staff and material resources for close, medium-term collaboration, generally lasting six years, and often contributes to establishing new research directions.

Six Research Units in detail:

The Research Unit: "Origins of (or in) the Modern Age: Theoretical Concepts, Literary Figurations, Historical Constructions" will investigate the fascination about origins and the related myths. The theory that the modern world has been progressively deprived of magic or myths will be critically examined, since the construction of modern origins has always been used in the context of strategies of justification and legitimisation. The investigation of the corresponding links, conceptual models and narratives will be studied for the last three hundred years with examples from the premodern and antique periods in close collaboration with literature scientists, philosophers and theologians.

Increased stress is one of the characteristics of a modern information and achievement-orientated society. What effect does this stress have on the human brain, in particular on the formation of memories? What are the resulting functional and dysfunctional behaviours, and how are these reflected in society? These questions will be examined by the Research Unit: "The Science of Social Stress (SOSS): Understanding the Interaction of Mind, Brain and Culture in the Response and Adaptation to Stress".
