In line with ongoing globalization and Europeanisation processes, scholars assume cultural homogenization processes among regions and nation states in Europe. From that point of view, differences in public discourses, value orientations, practices and legal regulations would be more and more leveled. However, other scholars postulate a continued existence of cultural differences. While those differences have often been rather related to territories like e.g. nation states or regions, those differences today are debated as delineating spaces that overlap traditional territories and interfere with globally more complex “deterritorialized” cultural spaces. The notion of “culture as relational space” (Heimann 2017) shall describe complex cultural formations of the present, which might constellate as diversified, dynamic, overlapping or even isomorphic cultural spaces. Moreover, the theory of “culture as relational space” allows to empirically proof cultural homogenization and differentiation processes. It grounds on the occurrence of cultural differences in terms of socially constructed spaces. This processes are impacting research practices, too.
