Käte Hamburger Lecture by Claudia Derichs
Knowledge Production, Area Studies and Global Cooperation | Wed, July 5, 2017, 17.30–19.30 h | Gerhard-Mercator-Haus, Lotharstraße 57, 47057 Duisburg
In our differentiated and stratified globalized world, different ideas, initiatives and perceptions of global cooperation partly co-exist, and partly clash. This is the starting point for Claudia Derichs's most recent book, titled "Knowledge Production, Area Studies and Global Cooperation".
In the 25th Käte Hamburger Lecture, presenting her arguments from the book, Prof. Claudia Derichs, Chair of Comparative Politics and International Development Studies at the Philipps-Universität Marburg, discusses some of the important methodological and political implications of this insight. Focussing particularly on Asian varieties of Islamic thought and political practice, she offers a detailed view of a context, the perception of which is often overshadowed by orientalist stereotypes in the West. Furthermore, she challenges traditional Area Studies notions of areas and Western political science notions of cooperation.
Claudia Derichs was Assistant Professor / Acting Chair at the IN-EAST from 1995 to 2006.
