Crisis, Otherness and Representation

Seminars

ALTER Group examines how East Asian social realities have been and are represented and self-represented from a critical and interdisciplinary perspective. In this regard, ALTER members view research as a collective process aimed at building knowledge, in which seminars are one of the most direct manifestations. Holding regular research seminars has, as a result, become one of the most fundamental and effective tools for communicating the Group’s findings.
