The research center was founded in 2008 at the Department of Philosophy and Humanities as part of the "Space for Humanities" Initiative of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Located directly next to the university's Institute of Theater Studies, the center hosts a fellows program for outstanding artists and scholars. During the past five years, the center has hosted more than 60 fellows from over 20 countries.
