Since 2010, the participating researchers from the fields of North American studies, German language and literature, cultural anthropology, and media studies investigated the series, a narrative type that has essentially been a defining feature of modern culture. The work was undertaken in 13 sub-projects. They addressed questions concerning the wide distribution and broad appeal of series since the 19th century as well as which new narrative formats have emerged through serialization. In addition to its base at Freie Universität Berlin, the PSRU had sub-projects at the universities of Göttingen, Hannover, Siegen, Karlsruhe, and Tübingen and at Duke University.
