From June 2nd to June 4th, 2022, Göttingen University will host the annual conference of the Joint Center of Advanced Studies Worldmaking from Global Perspective. A Dialogue with China. This event will bring together project members and fellows from all the Joint Center’s participating locations (Heidelberg, FU Berlin, Würzburg, and Göttingen), as well as additional invited scholars. The theme of our annual conference is Global Conflicts, Global Collaboration: China in a Changing World Order. Under this umbrella, we will – among other subjects – discuss arenas where shared global issues emerge but also become sources of geopolitical contestations. A range of thematic clusters will be discussed, including China’s place in historical and contemporary conceptions of world order; or the impact of the Ukraine War on China’s place in the world; China and its Muslim borderlands; environment and health as sources of global collaboration and conflict; and cities as socially contested spaces. Two panels and a keynote that deal with China’s place in shifting global orders are available to a wider public, via zoom.
