Junior Professorship for Cultural & Media Policy Studies



The junior professorship is dedicated to research into cultural and media policy processes, actors as well as structures on a local, national and international level.

A key focus is placed on cultural policy and socio-political transformation and democratization processes, as well as international cultural cooperation. Research is conducted at the intersection of academia and practice within an interdisciplinary framework.

The team around Meike Lettau explores the role of artists and cultural activists as agents of change, co-creation mechanisms in international cultural policy, and cultural policy paradigm shifts in foreign cultural policy and science diplomacy. In addition, bottom-up processes in cultural policy, community-based modes of production, and cultural expression in conflict regions are subjects of research.
