 konferenz september 1

konferenz september 2

This international and interdisciplinary conference organised by the China Centre in conjunction with the History Department at Kiel University aims to bring together the two disparate views of ageing; one focusing only on the weaknesses of getting old and the other on the positive potential of active ageing. A more nuanced view of old age is needed, focusing on the concept of "self restraint", which combines ideas such as abstinence, asceticism, self-denial and frugality, but also self-cultivation and self-education. Our international guest experts, from the fields of gerontology, humanistic research on ageing and cultural studies, will connect historical and current perspectives on ageing and self-denial through scientific approaches. Given its anthropological focus, the conference is held in conjunction with the Institute for Historical Anthropology.

Tibet, Taiwan and Tian´anmen

Tibet, Taiwan and Tian´anmen. These "three T's" and other cultural themes are topics of discussion  the whole world over. Thursday, June 12, 2014, saw the first event organised under the auspices of the newly founded Forum for Asian Legal Cultures. Dr. Knut B. Pißler, from Hamburg's Max-Planck-Institute for Foreign and International Private Law, gave a memorable lecture on Chinese law.

Venue:  Klaus-Murmann-Auditorium, Leibnizstrasse 1

For the first time, this event brought together Chinese and European approaches to sustainability. The three lectures were followed by a panel discussion, focusing in particular on the joint interests of China and Europe, their differences and the reasons for these, how integrated research projects can contribute to a realisation of sustainability strategies, and what we can learn from each other.

中国与环境及环境与中国的关系

This symposium, which took place on June 5, 2013, was jointly organised and hosted with the Gustav-Radbruch-Network for Environmental Philosophy and Ethics. The great practical experience of the speakers in China made the talks all the more informative. Topics covered included the Hukou System of household registration, which limited mobility after its introduction in the Mao era (Professor Johannes Küchler, TU Berlin), water  supply in the Tarim basin, of crucial importance in the west of China given its gas and oil resources and rising cotton production (Dr. Niels Thevs, Greifswald University), and the environmental awareness of the Chinese population, based on interviews with local people (Dr. des. Herrn Jorit Neubert). The symposium was very well attended and ended in lively debate.

What is (Chinese) medicine?

This question was investigated on June 12, 2014, by Prof. Dr. U. Paul Unschuld, Director of the Horst-Görtz-Foundation for the Theory, History and Ethics of Chinese Life Sciences at the Berliner Charité. The topic is a complex one, given the differences between medicine as documented in the past by the relatively few scholars and as actually practised by the population at large, about which almost nothing is known. A mere fraction of the old medical books have been translated, and many "treasures" may still remain hidden.
