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. The talk aims at approaching Cambodian tradition in the field of contemporary music which is not only essential to the Cambodian cultural revival, but also at least indirectly leads to a new phase of Cambodian- Thai cultural relations less burdened by cultural conflicts.

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.

From Saffron Revolution to Mabatha : Religion and Nationalism in Burma

In 2007, a social movement of Buddhist monks took to the streets to protest against the military junta and to support Aung San Suu Kyi. This movement coincided with the student movement and was violently suppressed, because the generals wanted to  keep in power and were afraid of the revenge  of the National League for Democracy (NLD).  Now, things are changing.

The Foreign Policy of Germany and Thailand in the Era of Otto von Bismarck and King Chulalongkorn in Comparative Perspective

Thailand and Germany have a successful history of almost 160 years of bilateral relations, in the fields of trade and economic cooperation as well as in the cultural, scientific and educational fields and are intensifying their people-to-people relations. During the 19th century, Prussia, and later the German Empire, was an absolute monarchy. Domestically, it was at the crossroads between the old policies of an institutional balance of power and a new policy of Realpolitik. Internationally, Bismarck decided to bind the other European powers to Germany with secret alliance and treaties in order to maintain the status quo. At the same time, Siam (Thailand) made efforts to resist colonial powers. King Chulalongkorn (r. 1868–1910) had the wisdom to understand that Thailand would have to be modernized if she wanted to preserve her independence. Therefore, the King visited Europe twice, in 1897 and 1907. Significantly, the two visits to Europe of King Chulalongkorn were considered vital for the survival of Siam in the time of European colonization. They strengthened the diplomatic relations between Thailand and Germany which were forged during the Eulenburg mission of 1862. In this lecture, Social Constructivism and Linkage Politics are used as theoretical frameworks to analyze the foreign policies of both Germany and Thailand in terms of national identity building through foreign policy action as well as to compare the bilateral relations of the two countries.
