11th Annual ADI Conference: Asian Mobilities

Konference — Join us for the 11th annual, international ADI conference. Keynote speeches by Professor Dr. Dagmar Shäfer, Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Professor Eric Tagliacozzo, Cornell University and Dr. Kajri Jain, University of Toronto, as well as panels on a wide range of themes.


Date & Time:

University of Copenhagen, South Campus, Building 22, Njalsgade 120, 2300 Copenhagen S

Hosted by:
Asian Dynamics Initiative



The 11th ADI conference continues the tradition of investigating Asian intra-regional and transregional connectivities. Our point of departure is that the multi-directional movement of people, ideas, things and technologies across space and time produces ever-changing configurations of human relationships, knowledge systems, and power relations. Through a focus on multiple connectivities and their impact on human perceptions, actions, knowledge paradigms and the material world, the conference will further expand understanding of the historical and contemporary significance of Asia in global contexts.

Welcome by Jesper Kallestrup, Dean of The Faculty of Humanities
