Transnationalisms and Institutions in East Asia

20.10.2017 | 08:30 - 19:00

GEAS Graduiertenkonferenz 2017

Transnationalism – understood as the exchanges, connections, and practices across borders – has transgressed national boundaries and challenged nation states. In an interconnected world, the meaning and sovereignty of nation states has been increasingly blurred and bounded institutions have been questioned. Institutions are an essential element of society, as they organize social, political, economic, cultural, religious, and normative activities. Our conference seeks to explore the relationship between transnationalism and institutions in East Asia. Does transnationalism create a space for actors to negotiate existing structures? Does it provoke, on the contrary, a mobilization around local/national institutions to protect themselves from an openness experienced as a threat? More generally, how do institutions emerge, transform, resist, or disappear within the dynamics of transnationalism?

Die GEAS Graduiertenkonferenz wird von DoktorandInnen aus der IV. Kohorte der Graduiertenschule für Ostasienstudien organisiert und gestaltet. Sie spricht vor allem Nachwuchswissenschaftler und externe Interessierte an, die sich mit Fragestellungen über Transnationalismus in China, Japan und Korea beschäftigen.
