My CEDITRAA story
“What is especially fascinating for me are insights into global developments. Studies showing developments of something called the ‘Global South’ have the potential to reveal that the assumption of trendsetting and complete dominance of the so-called ‘West’ is already an illusion. Models of centre and periphery are not only misaligned in new cultural production, there is also a proud awareness of a new centring in many areas of the world. These phenomena mirror a compelling global change.”
