Centre for Asian and Transcultural Studies (CATS)

Encounters — New Perspectives on Asia, America and Europe

Encounters - a series of dialogues instigated by the CATS and the Heidelberg Center for American Studies (HCA) is out to promote the exchange between academia and society. It intends to bring "big names” - from politics, business, and the arts, to Heidelberg. The envisaged dialogues respond to the growing importance and the dangerous transformation of relations between the two superpowers, the United States and China, which significantly affect Europe as well. Their relationship will shape the global world of the 21st century. The first Dialogue will take place on Tuesday, 30. November 2021 at 19.15 at CATS (ONLINE).

Theosophy Across Boundaries
CATS-Professor Hans Martin Krämer (Zentrum für Ostasienwissenschaften, Japanologie) ist vom New Books Network interviewt worden. Zusammen mit seinem Mitherausgeber Julian Strube stellt er dort seinen neuen Sammelband Theosophy Across Boundaries (State University New York Press, 2020) vor. In dem Buch geht es um die esoterische Bewegung der Theosophie, deren Anhänger*innen Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts in verschiedenen asiatischen Ländern auch in Politik, Gesellschaft, Literatur und Kunst aktiv waren. Das Interview ist auf Spotify bzw. dem New Books Network abrufbar.

Second Issue of CATSarena online

The second issue of CATSarena, the newsletter of the Centre for Asian and Transcultural Studies (CATS), is now online. It is focused on the topic of “COVID-19 AND EPIDEMICS IN ASIA”. The present issue shows how the dimensions of the pandemic in Asia vary widely. Diseases draw attention to human-animal entanglements, but they are also occasions for humour – not even, as one may assume, of the gallows kind. The contributors document the range of local responses to COVID-19, from the subversion of health measures to the critique of governments. In addition, some more personal accounts about travel and research in unpredictable Circumstances are featured.
