CFP: ‘Enlightening’ Taiwan: Communicating Knowledge as/in Social Activism in the Post-Sunflower Era
September 13, 2019
Social activism in Taiwan has attracted scholarly efforts from various disciplines, and the Sunflower Movement in 2014 has broadened the scope of studies on this subject, due to its geopolitical significance. However, one specific area of practices is under exploration that requires a better understanding – namely, the new form of intellectual engagement arising around the time of the Sunflower Movement, till this day.
The workshop welcomes proposals from researchers, activists, stakeholders, participants and ‘witnesses’ of this intellectual engagement in/as social activism – enlightening Taiwan. We expect proposals drawing on the practices of the following platforms of intellectual engagement with the public as/in social activism (the list is neither exclusive nor exhaustive): open forums such as Formosa Salon, Philosophy Friday, and Theology Sunday; online platforms such as Guava Anthropology, Public Medicine Times, StreetCorner Sociology, Kám-Á-Tiàm Forum of History, Plain Law Movement, WhoGoverns TW, Gushi [Story], New Bloomer, TalkEcon, Kuroshio Focus, etc.
The deadline for abstract submission has been extended to 13 September 2019.
