Min Dongchao new researcher at NIAS
September 20, 2017 - 12:49
Professor Min Dongchao, director of the Centre for Gender and Culture Studies at Shanghai University, has received a Marie Curie International Incoming Fellowship to work with senior researcher Cecilia Milwertz at the Nordic Institute of Asian Studies for two years from April 1, 2013 to March 31, 2015.
Professor Min’s project, ‘Cross-Cultural Encounters — The Travels of Gender Theory and Practice to China and the Nordic Countries,’ is concerned with the cross-cultural translation of knowledge and practices that may or may not take place when different cultures interact, and the resulting production of new knowledge. Taking the travelling routes of gender theory and practices to, and also between, China and the Nordic countries as the empirical object of study, the project will focus on the crucial questions of why and how knowledge travels or fails to.
