The Center for Area Studies (CAS) accentuates FU Berlin's capability in Area Studies and implements recent research trends in transregional and transcultural studies. The Center serves as a central clearing point for the great variety of Area Studies at FU Berlin. It fosters co-operation between different institutions and systematically cultivates transregional approaches. Moreover, it coordinates study programmes within the different Area Studies, initiatives common research projects and develops scientific exchange with national and international research institutions. Scientific task of CAS is to analyse transcultural phenomena and processes in an interdisciplinary way. In addition it promotes its scientific programme within the methodological and theoretical discussions around transculturality. CAS realizes its goals by, for example, organizing events (Salon transregional Studies, CAS lecture series, individual lectures, teaching programmes). It also publishes two paper series.
