Cluster of Excellence "Asia and Europe in a Global Context" at Heidelberg University welcomes applications for its Summer School
the Cluster of Excellence "Asia and Europe in a Global Context" at
Heidelberg University welcomes applications for its Summer School 2011 from
graduate students in humanities and social sciences with an interest in
transcultural studies. It will take place from July 24 to 29 in Heidelberg,
This year's Summer School "Cultures of Consumption in Asia and Europe" will
explore the meaning and significance of consumption in the past and present
as a crucial link between Europe and Asia. Although "consumer society" has
become a prominent term for the description of the ways of life connected
with a globalized modernity, the particular mode of experience and of
interaction with things to which it points is neither exclusively modern nor
exclusively occidental. Referring to the recent innovative insights from
cultural and economic history, social sciences and anthropology, together
with the expertise of foremost scholars working on both European and Asian
themes, the aim of the programme is to gain a truly transcultural grasp of
respective cultures of consumption.
The programme is designed to provide stimulating opportunity to get new
inspiration for graduate work, exchange ideas on the topics of one's
research and actively engage with an international group of peers as well as
renowned scholars. The confirmed speakers include Joanna Elfving-Hwang
(Frankfurt), Sheldon Garon (Princeton), Manpreet Janeja (Cambridge), Robert
Hellyer (Wake Forest), Angus Lockyer (SOAS London), Seoungsook Moon (Vassar
College), Francoise Sabban (EHESS Paris), and from the University of
Heidelberg Rudolf G. Wagner, Christiane Brosius, Harald Fuess, Katja
Patzel-Mattern, David Mervart and Mio Wakita.
In addition to the academic programme, a range of excursions and leisure
activities in and around the city of Heidelberg is on offer, including a
guided city tour, visit of the German Packaging Museum and a beer tasting
