Online Lecture “Overcoming Cultural Ownership Conflicts” on 13.12.2021

The Cambodian genocide under the Khmer Rouge regime (1975–1979) resulted in the devastation of Cambodian culture. Since then, Cambodia has been facing many challenges in the revival of its cultural traditions.

Online Lecture “Language Change as an Evidence for Dating Old Thai Texts” on 26.11.2021

Old Thai texts are traditionally dated by non-linguistic criteria such as material, content, letters and orthography. Fewer works which use language-internal criteria are usually limited to lexical and idiomatic features and less attention has been paid to the role of language changes. This lecture shows that semantic and grammatical changes of words can be used as an alternative criteria to date old Thai texts because these kinds of linguistic changes occur in a gradual and directional manner

Tropenkrankheiten in Thailand: Relevanz für Deutschland

Wie kaum ein anderes Land ist das Königreich Thailand bei deutschen Touristen sehr beliebt. Für viele Reisende ist es aufgrund der guten touristischen Infrastruktur DAS Einsteigerziel in Asien. Trotzdem sollte man sich vor jeder Reise von einem Tropenmediziner beraten lassen, um das Risiko währen oder unmittelbar nach der Reise zu erkranken, zu minimieren. Die nicht impfpräventablen Krankheiten, insbesondere die durch Stechmücken übertragenen Viren, haben eine herausragende Bedeutung in der Reisemedizin erlangt. So sind seit Anfang dieses Jahres bereits 3.141 Menschen in Thailand am Chikungunya-Fieber erkrankt, das durch das gleichnamige Virus hervorgerufen wird. Die tagaktive Stechmücke, die dieses Virus in Thailand überträgt, kommt mittlerweile auch in Deutschland vor. Anhand von aktuellen klinischen und diagnostischen Fällen möchte ich einige ausgewählte tropische Virosen vorstellen und Ihnen einen aktuellen Überblick über die Klinik, Diagnostik und Epidemiologie dieser Erkrankungen geben. Darüber hinaus werde ich auf die Gefahr autochthoner Infektionen mit tropischen Erregern in Deutschland eingehen.
