Excellence Cluster TOPOI: Formation and Transformation of Space and Knowledge in Ancient Civilizations

Cooperation Topoi

At the heart of the Excellence Cluster Topoi stands the interplay of space and knowledge in the formation and transformation of ancient cultures and societies. Topoi combines Berlin’s strengths in ancient studies research. Supported by the Freie Universität Berlin and the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, the Excellence Cluster is the product of cooperation with the four major institutions in Berlin involved in research into antiquity: the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities, the German Archaeological Institute, the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science and the Stiftung Preußischer Kulturbesitz. Central to its mission are the concepts of “space” and “knowledge.”
