Heike Paul is the speaker of the newly established research training group "The Sentimental in Literature, Culture, and Politics" at Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (funded by the German Research Foundation and the Federal State Government). The research training group examines the sentimental, understood as a communicative code that can be observed in various fields of symbolic interaction such as aesthetic articulations, cultural practices, and in political discourses. The disciplines collaborating in the research training group are American Studies, English Studies, Media Studies, Political Science, Chinese Studies, and Sociology, and it is also part of FAU's Global Sentimentality Project, also led by Heike Paul.
