The Theory and Practice of Transculturation


Transcultural Studies Student Conference

Heidelberg Centre for Transcultural Studies

in cooperation with StudierendenRat Heidelberg University

Heidelberg, April 27, 2018 | Karl Jaspers Centre

Our Research Interest

Can transculturation be looked at practically? In recent times multiculturalism has become a staple term for policy making in many countries, being employed in a fashion that deals with issues of identity and society in politics, international relations, the economy, culture and others. Aspiring to challenge some of the base assumptions of multiculturalism, the idea of transculturation as a methodology has seen increasing popularity of late, although at large this popularity has remained restricted to a theoretical academic discourse.

Considering this, the workshop examines transculturation as a thought tool for practical implementation, both “real world” and academic. The workshop will strive to maintain the division set by the Cluster “Asia and Europe in a Global Context”, and discuss the topic in hand via three general lenses as will be embodied in the different panels: 1) Society, Economy and Government, 2) Knowledge, Belief and Religion, and finally 3) Visual and Material Culture. We believe that aspiring researchers of most fields and disciplines will find it possible to match their transcultural studies research with at least one of the lenses of this workshop.
