Recht – Emotion – Schreiben (Law ‒ Emotion ‒ Writing, R-E-S) is a domicile for projects that are oriented towards media culture studies. Media issues are examined in the context of practices and cultural techniques.

R-E-S addresses the following:

  • observing the interactions between media and cultural phenomena and practices;
  • visualising relevant relations within R-E-S and the observation of associated, innovative fields of research: e.g. writing and emotion, writing and law, emotion and law;
  • working out new object areas and an innovative combination of theoretical and method models;
  • discussing meta-theoretical perspectives and interdisciplinary associations;
  • formulating specific interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary questions, also with the aim of uncovering open points in the individual disciplines.

R-E-S thus enables the theories and object areas to be brought together in the context of cultural studies.

Examples of concepts and terms that are processed in the context of R-E-S:

  • practice/practicality
  • reality
  • aesthetics
  • complex, constellation, assemblage, arrangement
  • context
  • materiality, mediality
  • liminality, space-in-between, threshold 
  • law, case
  • disturbance
  • action, movement, gesture
