Transcoding as Cultural and Social Practice

Textbook project

In late 2009, Prof. Dr. Marion Eggert has joined a three person team (consisting of one scholar each for Korean, Japanese and Chinese Studies) that is to develop textbook materials on East Asian history for high school students. This is a joint project of Georg Eckert Institute for International Textbook Research and the Northeast Asia History Founda­tion, scheduled to last until 2012. The resulting textbook materials are expected to heighten teacher competence on East Asian topics and to increase schooling time devoted to East Asia. Cooperating in this textbook project will also create synergies for the Bochum advanced education trainings described in the link above.
