9.12.: Presentation at Agorá: "70 years of the People's Republic of China: a Success Story?"

Lecturer: Univ.-Prof.in Mag.a Dr.in Susanne Weigelin-Schwiedrzik Date/Time: Monday, 9 December, 2019, 18:00. Location: Bibliotheksaula, University Library, Hofstallgasse 2-4, 5020 Salzburg.

Im Jahr 2019 ist die VR China am 1. Oktober 70 Jahre alt geworden. In diesem Vortrag geht es darum, sich mit der Frage auseinanderzusetzen, inwieweit die Option, das Regime schrittweise zu demokratisieren, in diesen 70 Jahren zur Diskussion stand und warum es bisher zu dieser Demokratisierung nicht gekommen ist. Ausgehend von der Situation unmittelbar nach dem Ende des 2. Weltkriegs werden verschiedene Ereignisse in den 70 Jahren seit Gründung der VR China analysiert, die eine Chance, das politische System aus sich selbst heraus zu demokratisieren, geboten haben. Wie die Chancen genutzt oder eben nicht genutzt wurden und warum wir bisher keine Entwicklung in Richtung Demokratisierung erkennen können, ist die Frage, die in diesem Vortrag beantwortet werden soll.

Susanne Weigelin-Schwiedrzik ist seit 2002 Professorin für Sinologie an der Universität Wien. Nach einem Studium der Sinologie, Japanologie und der politischen Wissenschaft in Bonn, Bochum und Peking wurde sie im Jahr 1982 in Bochum promoviert und 1989 an selber Stelle habilitiert, bevor sie als Professorin für Moderne Sinologie einen Studiengang zum modernen China an der Universität Heidelberg aufbaute. Viele Forschungsaufenthalte führten sie an Universitäten in der VR China, Hongkong, Japan und den USA. Ihre Forschungsschwerpunkte liegen im Bereich der chinesischen Geschichte und Geschichtsschreibung im 20. Jahrhundert sowie in der Analyse der Innen- und Außenpolitik der VR China. Derzeit schreibt sie zusammen mit Wolfgang Schwentker den Band über die Geschichte Ostasiens im 19. und 20. Jahrhundert für die Neue Fischer Weltgeschichte.

    During games when there are no fans in local football stadiums, deep acoustic insights into the inner workings of coaches can clearly be heard in TV broadcasts, due to the lack of background noise.Nevertheless, emotional outbursts and arguments among players and coaches have decreased considerably overall, in corona-related “behind closed door matches". Salzburg researchers calculated this using the example of games at FC Red Bull Salzburg. In contrast, more goals were scored across Austria.
