Five fellows arrive at Göttingen as part of new InterAsia Partnership

The University of Göttingen has been selected as the European partner and “hub” of the InterAsia Program launched by the Social Science Research Council of New York (SSRC). Other partners include Yale University, Duke University, National University of Singapore, the Hong Kong Institute of Humanities and Social Sciences, and Seoul National University.

At Göttingen the project will be based at the Centre for Modern Indian Studies (CeMIS) and the Global and Transregional Studies Platform link

Established in 2008, the SSRC’s InterAsia Program aims to establish new approaches, practices, and opportunities in international, regional, and area studies. The intellectual focus is the reconceptualization of Asia as an interlinked historical and geographic formation stretching from West Asia through Eurasia, Central Asia, and South Asia to Southeast Asia and East Asia. Activities include the InterAsian Connections Conference Series, a Transregional Virtual Research Institute, and various nodal activities that build on the institutional strengths of each partner, developing regional loci for important InterAsia research and teaching.

The Göttingen Hub hosts and co-ordinates the following activities
