Within the framework of the “China-Weeks” at Heidelberg University, an interdisciplinary German-Chinese Doctoral Symposium will be held on 26 April 2010. The symposium is directed toward doctoral candidates and post-graduates who are currently conducting research or are involved in German-Chinese projects in Heidelberg, and those who have been on sabbatical in China or plan to do so in the future. The primary objective of this symposium is to provide insight into the growing number of German-Chinese cooperative research projects at Heidelberg University. Furthermore, up-and-coming academics will be given the unique opportunity to be involved in an interdisciplinary exchange in the context of German-Chinese collaboration. Lastly, participants will be sensitized to potential points of friction and conflict that could arise in an intercultural research environment.
The presentation of the projects in the morning is open to the public. The group discussions in the afternoon are exclusively for the doctoral candidates, post-graduates and faculty members from Heidelberg University. The symposium is divided into three sections:
- 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Presentation of the projects (max. 25 min/speaker). Moderation: Prof. Dr. Ulrich Glasmacher
- 1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. Introduction to different Traditions of Learning and Research. (Dr. Sun Hai, Fadja Ehlail)
