TEMA - Department of Thematic Studies


TEMA - The Department of Thematic Studies provides a unique institutional framework committed in its pursuit of interdisciplinary research to be of vital social and environmental importance in thematic fields of knowledge between and beyond disciplinary boundaries. We act as an interface helping to meld research excellence with educational pursuits, actively involving other societal and stakeholder interests. We foster our students and junior researchers with the capacity to become experts through creative and synergetic thinking at the frontiers of scientific and societal development.

Said about Tema

“The faculty competence was excellent and helpful for different approaches and disciplines which enriched my research. The challenge was to find time to reflect and “digest” all the inputs and to research and write more.” Visiting Researcher 2010

“I would also like to mark a very supportive, encouraging and often almost informal atmosphere at Tema, which contributes to a comfortable social climate and a constructive dialog.” Visiting Researcher 2010

“High quality work and discussions—most productive and enjoyable.” Visiting Researcher 2010

“During my stay I gave a range of seminars, informal talks and conference papers and felt there was a high level of engagement in each area. More importantly, the grad and post grad students with whom I was in contact were very comfortable in taking an active part in mixed level events—even in areas beyond there own immediate research interests.” Visiting Researcher 2010

“I not only did what I had planned, but have developed several collaborative projects with other fellows.” Visiting Researcher 2010

”I very much appreciated the ability to spend time with so many productive scholars. The mix of generations made the conversations vibrant. I made at least one new lifelong friend, and developed several collegial connections! Thank you!” Visiting Researcher 2010

“I congratulate TEMA for the stimulating and congenial environment for scholarship.” Visiting Researcher 2010

“I congratulate TEMA for the stimulating and congenial environment for scholarship.” Visiting Researcher 2010

“I found Tema to be a very congenial place for a visiting scholar. Faculty, doctoral students, and staff were friendly and very welcoming and supportive.” Visiting Researcher 2010

“I worked in Tema Genus but met others from the wider research community and felt there was a very positive intellectual ambience throughout. In Tema Genus the goal of interdisciplinarity was broadly achieved and provided some intriguing encounters. I felt it was a source of real intellectual strength.” Visiting Researcher 2010
