Workshop zum Thema "Jugend in Südostasien"

Am Freitag, den 28.6.2019 findet von 10 bis 15 Uhr ein Workshop zum Thema "Jugend in Südostasien" statt. Der Workshop wird gemeinsam von Sandra Kurfürst und Pham Hong Tung (Vietnam National University Hanoi) organisiert.

In this workshop we will assess the aspirations and lifestyles of young people in Mainland Southeast Asia, particularly Vietnam. We will address the challenges and possibilities offered by late socialism both in urban and rural areas. In his account of young people navigating in a precarious urban environment, Simone (2019: 30) outlines the practice of crafting: “In crafting there is the recognition of a sought-for instrumentality, of the ability to accomplish something through composition, through piecing together different styles, influences, and skills to gain access to specific opportunities." Young people oftentimes combine different sources of income and knowledge acquisition, while being at the same time part of multiple communities of practice. In the workshop we will look closely at young people’s practices of crafting in the context of rapid socioeconomic change.

Der Workshop ist für alle Interessierten offen, um Anmeldung per E-Mail an eva.fuhrmann@uni-koeln.de wird jedoch gebeten.

Veranstaltungsort ist das Global South Studies Center (Classen-Kappelmann-Str. 24, 50931 Köln), Raum 3.03

GSSC Public Lecture: Rewriting National History of Vietnam

Am 3.7.2019, 17:45 - 19:15 Uhr findet im Rahmen der GSSC Public Lectures ein Vortrag von Professor Pham Hong Tung (Vietnam National University Hanoi) statt.

Since 2014, the Association of Vietnamese Historians has conducted a big project that aimed at re-writing Vietnamese national history. It was planned to publish a new version of Vietnamese history in the next years in form of a book series of 25 volumes and a large chronicle of 5 volumes.

In his presentation, Prof. Pham Hong Tung will introduce the project. He also deals with several important issues concerning the philosophy and methodology of writing national history. Vietnamese historiography and discussions among Vietnamese and foreign historians on many problems of the Vietnamese history will be examined as well. Re-writing national history for Vietnamese, as well as other people in the world, is therefore a way of re-defining their national identity and self-imagination.

Ort: Global South Studies Center, R. 3.03 (third floor), Classen-Kappelmann-Str.24, 50931 Köln
