East Asia Research Salon

The Göttingen East Asia Research Salon

Serving as a venue for PhD students in the field of East Asian Studies, our Salon encourages young researchers to meet, network and present their work. It brings a new generation of scholars together with established researchers to create a vibrant hub of scholarly exchange and collaboration.

Each of our Salons is a small group gathering hosted by a young faculty member. Participants are invited to discuss their dissertation research, but are also expected to move beyond their individual topics and engage with the wider research community.
