Cluster holds General Meeting

Oct 17, 2013

On Thursday evening, the Cluster of Excellence "Asia and Europe in a Global Context" held its General Meeting at the Karl Jaspers Centre for Advanced Transcultural Studies.

After a short welcome, Acting Director Prof. Barbara Mittler informed the Cluster members about the latest news and developments. In particular, she mentioned the high interest in the fellowships of the newly established Heidelberg Centre for Transcultural Studies and outlined the plans for the Centre for Asian and Transcultural Studies at Heidelberg University.

Subsequently, Eric Decker reviewed the latest activities of the Heidelberg Research Architecture, and Dr. Andrea Hacker informed about the Cluster's Book Series, the E-Journal and other services of the Publications Office. More than a dozen new Cluster members introduced themselves and their projects, including Armin Volkmann who was just appointed as Junior Research Group Leader for Digital Humanities. Furthermore, Prof. Mittler welcomed Prof. Joseph Maran as Co-Director and Oliver Lamers as Scientific Project Manager (interim).

Finally, Prof. Mittler invited the Cluster members to several upcoming events. The next Cluster-wide event will be the Jour Fixe on December 12, 2013. Prof. Birgit Meyer (Utrecht) will give a talk on "Sensational Pictures. On the Circulation of Religious Imagery across Time and Space".

The General Meeting is a major event at the Cluster, because all members come together and exchange important information. The General Meeting is held at the beginning and at the end of every semester.
