Kultur und Raum


The transformations of contemporary working cultures are characterized by flexibility, automation, changes in work processes and models. Depending on the reading, these pervasive processes allow for an optimistic or pessimistic prognosis for the future. It only seems clear in the current social, political and scientific negotiations that changes, and distributions of wealth will go hand in hand with the constant change that is sometimes experienced as blatantly fast. This context forms the overall research framework.
The planned study focuses on young adults and organizations in and around Liechtenstein. This thematic focus and the concrete spatial setting each bring with it specific logics, their choice closes with previous work of the Center for Humanities and Cultural Studies (GKW) e.g. on the subject of youth.

Against this background, a small study on working cultures in and around Liechtenstein will be carried out. On the one hand, it is important to create a layout of existing, relevant research work and then formulate, reflect on and discuss possible research needs. Following this outlined need for research, on the other hand, potential theoretical-methodological approaches, which explicitly correspond to the ethnographic-oriented scientific and entrepreneurial profile of the Center GKW, are explored for their utilization in the research field and the specific, selected topic.
These study results are prepared as an article and conference contribution. At the same time, the findings lead to a basic paper, which makes it possible to create a customized project outline and to gain potential practice partners for a subsequent, applied research project.
