Apr 20, 2018

On Thursday afternoon, April 19, the Heidelberg Center for Transcultural Studies held its first General Meeting of the summer semester 2018. The meeting took place at the Karl Jaspers Centre for Advanced Transcultural Studies.

Prof. Nikolas Jaspert headed the meeting; he took over the acting directorship from Prof. Barbara Mittler at the beginning of the summer semester. He first thanked her for her work as Acting Director and then welcomed the new researchers at the HCTS.

Prof. Michael Radich is the new Professor for Buddhist Studies. Camille Simon, who is the new lecturer in Tibetan Language, and Ruixuan Chen, who is Radich’s assistant, complete his team.

Dr. Amelia Bonea, Simon Cubelic, and Dr. Davide Torri started their projects in the Transcultural Forays Programme at the beginning of April and Prof. Magdolna Orosz and Prof. Paola Zamperini will join the HCTS as Tandem Fellows. Also, Dr. Ivan Sablin will cooperate with the HCTS for his ERC project, which is based at the Department of History at Heidelberg University.

Prof. Jaspert then gave an update on the latest awards, grants and appointment for members of the Cluster and HCTS, the most recent of which is Dr. Cathrine Bublatzky’s DFG grant for her network “Entangled Histories of Art and Migration: Forms, Visibilities, Agents.” He also talked about the latest monographs, edited volumes and articles published by the HCTS.

As for scheduled dates, Jaspert drew the attention to the first Transcultural Studies Student Conference on April 27 and the next HCTS Stadtgespräch, which will take place at the Heidelberger Kunstverein on May 17. Also, Prof. Magdolna Orosz and Prof. Barbara Besslich will present their Tandem Fellow project in HCTS lectures on May 24 and July 12, respectively.

In the second part of the General Meeting, Dr. Anna Andreeva, Dr. Cathrine Bublatzky and Dr. Ivan Sablin presented their new projects, which are either located at or associated with the HCTS.
