Certificates for Graduate Students

Oct 17, 2014

On Thursday evening, the third round of students of the Graduate Programme for Transcultural Studies received their certificates. The eight students were selected in 2011 out of nearly 200 applicants to pursue their doctoral degree within the framework of the Cluster.

After words of welcome by Cluster director Prof. Joseph Maran, Prof. Monica Juneja and Prof. Joachim Kurtz reviewed the proceedings of the third round of the Graduate Programme for Transcultural Studies. Also, Dr. Kerstin von Lingen and Oliver Lamers remembered some of the various activities ranging from lectures to excursions. Subsequently, the graduate students presented photos illustrating their perspective on the programme. The highlight, however, was the award of the certificates by Prof. Harald Fuess to the graduate students. The closing ceremony was enriched by musical performances of the trained jazz pianist Dr. Miriam Weiss.

The Graduate Programme for Transcultural Studies is a structured doctoral programme within the interdisciplinary research environment of the Cluster. The programme's institutional reference is the Karl Jaspers Centre, situated at Heidelberg University. In line with the Cluster's focus, the programme's research profile centres on the dynamics of cultural exchange processes between Asia and Europe. The Cluster challenges the master narrative of asymmetrical Western domination along with its historical explanation, its methodology, and the resulting structures of the humanities and social sciences.
