Workshop on "Digital Transformation in East Asia"
The Institute of Orient and Asian Studies at the University of Bonn (IOA) and the Institute of Asian and Oriental Studies at the University of Tübingen (AOI) are pleased to announce the international workshop on “Digital Transformation in East Asia. Impacts on Economy and Society II: From Discourse to Praxis” (March 18 and 19, online). This workshop, which is the second part of the presentation of our research project “The Digital Transformation in East Asia”, explores digital transformation as a discourse formation which is successively developing into a self-enforcing praxis in a society. We aim to elucidate the legitimisation process in digitalisation discourses, the political-economisation, and the performative actions of digitalisation in the economy and society of East Asia.
Prof. Dr. Sabine Pfeiffer, Professor of sociology at the interdisciplinary Nuremberg Campus of Technology (NCT) of the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, will deliver a keynote lecture.
