Daniel Kiowski coordinator of “CATS-Schülerlabor”
| We cordially welcome Daniel Kiowski as the new coordinator of the “CATS-Schülerlabor,” a student lab for German high school students located at the South Asia Institute. |
The lab, which is a project of the Centre for Asian and Transcultural Studies (CATS), will provide half to full-day workshops offering an Asian perspective to curricular topics. It aims at getting students interested in the broad field of Asian studies.
Mr. Kiowski’s functions are to get in touch with teachers and schools within the region in order to advertise the project. Internally, he will promote the lab within the institutes of CATS and find members of staff willing to give classes and hold workshops. Together, they will create teaching units with a special focus on Asia and Asian countries that fit the school curricula.
Daniel Kiowski studied East Asian art history, Chinese studies and European art history at Freie Universität Berlin, Nanjing University and Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg. His research interests focus on Chinese art history, museum studies and material culture.
The Centre for Asian and Transcultural Studies combines the Asian Studies in Heidelberg and connects it to other disciplines of social sciences and humanities. CATS will unite the South Asia Institute, the Center for East Asian Studies, the Department of Anthropology and the Heidelberg Centre for Transcultural Studies.
