Forschung/Research - Merle Schatz

My ongoing project on structural characteristics of established and outsider figurations in Inner Mongolia explains, how different context models on both sides (Chinese and Mongolian) regarding several social, economic, political, historical (…) spheres create a very complex situation of living on a shared ground (Inner Mongolia). My aim is to describe this complexity on the three levels ideas, institution and practice and to discuss the specific established outsider figurations in Inner Mongolia.
