The Cluster of Excellence "Asia and Europe in a Global Context" / Heidelberg Centre for Transcultural Studies (HCTS) has been invited to join the European Alliance for Asian Studies. The Cluster/HCTS will be represented by Prof. Dr. Christiane Brosius within the network. The European Alliance for Asian Studies is a co-operative framework of European institutes specialising in Asian Studies.

Prof. Dr. Christiane Brosius (Chair of Visual and Media Anthropology) will represent the Cluster / HCTS within the alliance. At the next network meeting in May 2015 in Hamburg, collaborative issues such as faculty mobility and further strategies of networking will be explored. Collaboration will be with the directors of the initiating institutes the Asia Alliance, Dr. Philippe M.F. Peycam (IIAS), Dr. Geir  Helgesen (NIAS), and Prof. Dr. Patrick Koellner (GIGA).
