As an interdisciplinary research centre, the SFB 1199 publishes the main results from its annual conferences and from the thematic working groups in a book series. Additionally, books presenting results from individual projects and workshops are published with different series addressing disciplinary audiences as well.
With research spanning a wide spectrum of disciplines, results are published as articles in both general and topical peer-reviewed journals. Two peer-reviewed journals are directly related to the research of the SFB 1199. Comparativ. Journal of Global History and Comparative Studies of Society, which prints six thematic issues per year, serves since 2002 as the official organ of the European Network in Universal and Global History (ENIUGH). Transnational, Cross-Regional and Global Connections. A Journal for Historians and Area Specialists is an e-journal (formerly history.transnational), which the SFB 1199 provides with up-to-date and open-access research.
Cartography is an important issue when it comes to the vizualization of processes of respatialization. The collection of maps, together with their interpretations, are provided from the perspective of the SFB’s research agenda. They offer new examples how to overcome conventions of classical map-making by producing innovative forms to map phenomena investigated in the various projects of the Collaborative Research Centre.
The first findings of the projects of the Collaborative Research Centre (SFB) 1199 are published in the working paper series. The working paper series is open not only to researchers from the SFB 1199 but also to all those who are interested in close cooperation with the centre and in contributing to the investigation of processes of respatialization. The executive board has editorial responsibility over all working papers and organizes the peer-review process before approval for publication. Working papers are available online.
The projects in section A focus on actors and their intentions, imaginations, practices, and strategies. This range of subjects is based on the insight that space is socially produced.

The Integrated Research Training Group (IGK) trains junior scholars in the SFB. It is seamlessly connected to the already existing doctoral training programme in the Research Academy at the University of Leipzig. The IGK brings together the independent research activities of the doctoral candidates with the training modules of the SFB and the Leipzig Graduate School Global and Area Studies.
The Central Project (Z Project), first and foremost, brings together all administrative activities carried out by the SFB’s projects, including, among others, a weekly colloquium, thematic working groups (each connected to a series of workshops), the annual conferences, a guest researcher programme, and participation in conferences. Secondly, the postdoctoral project “Spatial Formats and Spatial Orders: Typology and Historical Narrative” is embedded within the Z Project.
To foster internal discussions and debates as well as general work on a common theoretical and conceptual framework within the Collaborative Research Centre (SFB) 1199, 14 thematic working groups have been established that will address different dimensions of the SFB’s research programme. This structure reacts to the disciplinary, theoretical, and methodological differences within the interdisciplinary composition of the SFB.
The Collaborative Research Centre (SFB) 1199 cooperates both nationally and internationally through research partnerships as well as activities related to teaching and doctoral student exchange.
The World Map of Cooperation is an interactive tool to visualize and learn about the Collaborative Research Centre’s national and international partners and networks.
Spatialization is a central dimension of social actions. Spaces are being made by people. The Collaborative Research Centre (SFB) 1199: “Processes of Spatialization under the Global Condition” addresses what characterizes these spaces, how they relate to one another, and whether resulting spatial orders are becoming increasingly complex within the context of globalization processes.
The Collaborative Research Centre is a cooperation between the University of Leipzig and two non-university research centres: the Leibniz Institute for the History and Culture of Eastern Europe (GWZO) and the Leibniz Institute for Regional Geography (IfL). The SFB research programme is directly linked to the overall research foci of the Centre for Area Studies (CAS).
Owing to the Collaborative Research Centre’s highly interwoven and layered structure, the SFB organigram provides an easy-to-understand graphic representation of the organization of participating institutions, speakers and executive board members, coordinators, partner organizations, as well as staff.
The Collaborative Research Centre (SFB) 1199 is managed and directed by the spokesperson and deputy spokesperson as well as executive board. The executive board is composed of the spokesperson and deputy spokesperson as well as four other members from the SFB, including one joint representative for junior scholars. The coordinators of the SFB, the Centre for Area Studies, and the Integrated Research Training Group take part as observers and advisors.
The administration and coordination of the Collaborative Research Centre (SFB) 1199 – organized under the Central Project – brings together all managerial and planning activities carried out by the projects, including, among others, the weekly colloquium, the thematic working groups (each connected to a series of workshops), the SFB annual conferences, the guest researcher programme, and participation in conferences.
