Summer School on Sites of Knowledge

May 23, 2013

Young scholars from all over the world applied for this year´s Summer School “Sites of Knowledge: Space, Locality, and Circulation between Asia and Europe”. It will take place at the Karl Jaspers Centre in Heidelberg from August 4 to 8, 2013.

The Summer School 2013 “Sites of Knowledge” will explore the significance of space and locality for the generation and circulation of knowledge. Starting from the premise that space and place shape the social interactions in which knowledge is made and remade, the Summer School´s sessions will address questions such as: Is all knowledge local? Does the situatedness of knowledge preclude claims to ‘truth’ and ‘universality’? And how can we best conceptualize the liminal spaces in which knowledge is traded or transmitted?

The sessions address graduate students in humanities and social sciences with an interest in theories and practices of knowledge production in Asia and Europe. It is designed as an academic programme, which combines lectures by renowned experts with more interactive elements such as seminars and group work.

For inquiries and further information, please contact the Summer School organisation team at summerschool@asia-europe.uni-heidelberg.de. The Cluster’s Summer School 2013 is organised by Prof. Dr. Joachim Kurtz, Professor of "Intellectual History" and Speaker of Research Area C "Knowledge Systems”, and Dr. Martin Hofmann, Assistant Professor of East Asian Intellectual History.
