The Institute's research strength lies in its combination of the study of several language fields: French, German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese. Its academic staff specialise in literature, cultural studies, history of ideas and comparatives studies: the city (especially Berlin, Trieste), borders, the body, psychoanalysis, gender and sexuality, feminism, women's writing, Jewish writing, exile writing, children's literature. Because of its function as a centre for academic events in European culture, the Institute has national and international contacts with researchers in its fields.
