Unterricht bleibt weiter online bis Ende des Semesters

Liebe Studierende,

unsere vage Hoffnung, nach der Pfingstferienwoche vielleicht zu „normalem“ Unterricht in kleinen Klassengrößen zurückzukehren, hat sich leider nicht erfüllt. Das gesamte Semester wird online stattfinden. Kann Ihnen aber versichern, dass wir uns die allergrößte Mühe geben, dass das für Sie kein „verlorenes“ Semester ist.

Die Dozent*innen werden demnächst in Aussprache mit Ihnen die Prüfungsformate festlegen, über die wir Sie dann zeitnah auch im Gesamten informieren werden.

Von meiner bisherigen Erfahrung des Online-Teachings in verschiedenen Jahrgangsstufen möchte ich Ihnen zurufen: Sie machen das ganz wunderbar! Bin wirklich beeindruckt von Ihrer Hingabe und Ihrem guten Willen, das Beste aus der Situation zu machen – herzlichen Dank!

Hier mein Wahlspruch für den Rest des Semesters: 興於詩,立於禮,成於樂  („Durch Dichtung werden wir angeregt, wir finden Halt in den Riten und Erfüllung in der Musik“).

Mit besten Grüßen

Achim Mittag

New monograph published

Prof. Gunter Schubert has published a new monograph, co-written with his longterm colleague Thomas Heberer from the University of Duisburg-Essen. This book is the result of several years of intensive fieldwork in some 15 provinces and municipalities across China on the political agency of private entrepreneurs and contemporary state-business relations in the PRC. It offers a new perspective on the dynamics of "Chinese capitalism", challenging a number of well-established assumptions on the political influence of private entrepreneurs in a changing Chinese economy.

DFG Research Grant for Taiwan Project of Prof. Schubert

Prof. Gunter Schubert successfully applied for 3 years of funding granted by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) for a new research project titled "Totally Opening up? A Empirical Study on Xi Jinping's New Taiwan Policy". Prof. Schubert will closely collaborate with colleagues from Taiwan and the PRC. Fieldwork will be foremost conducted in Fujian and Guangdong provinces in China, and in Taiwan, with qualitative interviews focusing on the constituencies of Taiwanese working and living in China, Chinese government officials responsible for Taiwan-related policies, and government officials in Taiwan. The project ties in Prof. Schubert's longterm research on the political economy of Sino-Taiwanese relations, Taiwanese entrepreneurs operating on the Chinese Mainland (Taishang) and local policy implementation in the PRC.

Scholarship: Gerda-Henkel PhD Scholarship for Anna Strob, M.A.

Anna Strob has been granted a two-year PhD scholarship by the Gerda Henkel Foundation. The generous support of the foundation will allow her to focus full-time on her PhD project “Translating Renaissance Science: Alfonso Vagnone’s Kongji gezhi 空際格致 (Investigation into Celestial Phenomena, c. 1633).” According to the present state of research, the Kongji gezhi can be considered one of the first comprehensive attempts to translate Aristotle’s natural philosophy into Chinese. This effort, undertaken as part of the Jesuit mission, coincided with a growing interest in natural sciences and technology in late Ming China. In her doctoral thesis Anna Strob examines linguistic and conceptual challenges of this multi-facetted cultural encounter. Her thesis is supervised by Prof. Dr. Hans Ulrich Vogel and Prof. Dr. Achim Mittag and is part of the international project “Translating Western Science, Technology and Medicine to Late Ming China:  Convergences and Divergences in the Light of the Kunyu gezhi 坤輿格致 (Investigations of the Earth’s Interior; 1640) and the Taixi shuifa 泰西水法 (Hydromethods of the Great West; 1612)” funded by the German Research Foundation and carried out at the University of Tübingen.

Publication: Nanny Kim, Mountain Rivers, Mountain Roads

Nanny Kim
Mountain Rivers, Mountain Roads: Transport in Southwest China, 1700‐1850
Leiden, Boston: Brill, 2018
(Monies, Markets, and Finance in East Asia, 1600-1900, Vol. 13; General Editor: Hans Ulrich Vogel)

The commercialized economy of late imperial China depended on efficient transport, yet transport technologies, transport economics as well as its role in local societies and in interdependencies of environments and human activities are acutely under-researched. Nanny Kim analyses two transports systems into the Southwest of Qing China through the long eighteenth century and up to the mid-nineteenth century civil wars. The case studies explore shipping on the Upper Changjiang in Sichuan and through the Three Gorges into Hubei, and road transport out of the Sichuan Basin across northeastern Yunnan and northwestern Guizhou into central Yunnan. Specific and concrete investigations of a river that presented extreme dangers to navigation and carriage across the crunch zone of the Himalayan Plateau provides a basis for a systematic reconstruction of transport outside the lowland centres and their convenient networks of water transport.
