After five years, the annual symposium Forum Ostasiatische Kunstgeschichte im Deutschsprachigen Raum returns to Heidelberg University. For the past seven years, the Forum has brought early career researchers from German-speaking universities and museums together. Increasingly we were joined by colleagues from other parts of the world as well.


The 8th forum will again serve as a venue for presentations on individual research projects and for the discussion of methodological and institutional perspectives in the field. We encourage proposals for reports on ongoing research projects and graduate theses. Proposals for themed panels with three to four speakers are also welcome. The program will additionally include a section with reports from the institutes. 


To apply for a twenty-minute presentation, please send an abstract of 300 words and a short CV (max. 1 page) in German or English to Katharina Rode ( Panel proposals should include abstracts for the panel and for each paper. Deadline for submissions is May 15, 2019.

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide financial assistance for traveling costs.
We therefore ask participants to secure travel funding from other sources
