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 (R.010.00.05).

CATS professor Hans Martin Krämer (Center for East Asian Studies, Japanese Studies) has been interviewed by the New Books Network. In the interview, he talks about his new book, an edited volume with essays on Theosophy Across Boundaries (State University New York Press 2020, co-edited with Julian Strube). The Theosophical Society was an esoteric movement that was active in the late nineteenth century. In Asia, it was noteworthy for having served as a conduit for expressing reform in areas such diverse as politics, society, literature, and the arts. The interview is accessible on Spotify or the New Books Network website.
