Based on the new research concept of "strong asymmetric dependency," our Master's programs open up new approaches to the study and research of slavery and other forms of strong asymmetrical dependency from an interdisciplinary perspective. By studying profound social dependency relations such as slavery, serfdom, debt bondage, and other forms of dependency across eras, regions, and cultures, the focus is not on the modern world but on its diverse antecedents in Asian, American, African, and European societies. Hence our Master's programs provide a more nuanced view of strong asymmetrical dependency relations, breaking away from the "slavery versus freedom" dichotomy.

Both Master's degrees will provide students with new insights into area studies and historically and philologically oriented subjects. They will offer access to newly developed and empirically proven analytical tools for the investigation of complex dependency problems and resulting options for actors.
