The Research Training Group has been funded by the DFG since 2015. The central research topics are aesthetic dream representations and the literary, media and cultural history of the dream. Theoretically and methodologically, the RTG is oriented towards cultural studies and constructivism, media aesthetics and poetics of knowledge.
The Research Training Group uses the Networking module to inform the Comparative Literature research community about its activities. In the future, it is also planned to archive publications of the Research Training Group on CompaRe.
