The 9th Next-Generation Global Workshop


The Next-Generation Global Workshop (NGGW) has been held annually since 2008 to provide an opportunity for early-career scholars to present their research and to have feedback from an international audience. The workshop has served as a forum for scholars of different generations from various regions to build a common academic foundation by redefining Asia in the global context.

The theme of this year’s workshop builds on the concept of “transculturality.” The term “transculture” is used to describe processes of transformation that unfold through extended contacts and relationships between cultures, various agents, institutions and concepts. Transculturality may cover spatial mobility, circulation or flows of persons/goods/information and seeks emancipation from the limited notion of culture defined as ethnically closed, linguistically homogenous and territorially framed.

The 9th NGGW will be kicked-off by a joint symposium, co-organised with The Heidelberg Center for Transcultural Studies (HCTS). Focusing on teaching “Transcultural Studies,” the symposium begins with a keynote lecture by Monica Juneja (Global Art History), and includes a roundtable on “Spreading Transcultural Studies – Teaching Experiences in Heidelberg and Kyoto.”
