About TRA 5

The TRA “Past Worlds” seeks to foster interdisciplinary cooperation between researchers from the Faculty of Arts, the Faculty of Protestant Theology, the Faculty of Catholic Theology and the Faculty of Law and Economics at the University of Bonn.

The members follow the shared aim of developing innovative research topics and methods as well as constructing research networks. The TRA “Past Worlds” is funded by the German Excellence Strategy.


The steering committee is responsible for developing the research profile of the TRA and for coordinating its activities with the Rectorate and the faculties involved. It takes all decisions regarding start-up financing for innovative research projects and establishes measures for the advancement of early-career researchers. The TRA is led by two speakers.
