Lecture Series

CeMEAS Lecture Series

Our lecture series brings together Göttingen University faculty, as well as experts from other institutions to speak about current topics and pressing challenges in the field of East Asian Studies. Renowned speakers from various disciplines are asked to share their research, ideas and experience thus sparking a debate on East Asia’s growing influence in the world. Being an interdisciplinary project, our lecture series aims at further internationalizing teaching and research at the University of Göttingen. We invite interested students and staff members of all faculties to participate. Lectures are free and open to the public.
