Member of Department according to research areas
The Department of East Asian Studies in Göttingen covers a broad range of different areas of research from the humanities. These are connected with larger academic fields such as history, philosophy and religious studies both at the level of research and teaching. In this regard, our main focus lies on modern China, i.e. the time period from the 17th century up until the present.
Social scientific perspectives on China play a significant role in the Department of East Asian Studies in Göttingen. We cover many areas of research that are connected with disciplines such as sociology, economics and political science and urban studies. We do so in both research and teaching.
