An Interview by Nikola Chardonnens with Prof. Natascha Gentz

China’s encounter with the Western World, the reception of European Modernity and Chinese conceptual history – among others, these are the topics addressed in the research of the director of the Asian Studies Department of the University of Edinburgh, Natascha Gentz. In conversation with Nikola Chardonnens, she emphasizes the unique atmosphere at the Consortium, oscillating between topicality and interdisciplinarity - a combination that inspired her research greatly.
