CfP: EATS 2021 Conference – Taiwan in Transition
September 15, 2020
Taiwan’s contemporary political situation is, without doubt, at a crossroads, both domestically and internationally. Recent political and public-health events, following the outbreak of Covid-19, have shown the importance of Taiwan not only in the Asian region, but worldwide. Nobody could have foreseen the devastating as well as the self-strengthening effect the outbreak of Covid-19 would have on Taiwan.
The 18th EATS Annual Conference aims to cover not only the developments since the Covid-19 outbreak but also the events and changes that led to Taiwan’s current position. We invite contributions from all disciplines, pertaining to all periods, in order to analyse the multiple perspectives from which Taiwan’s past, present and future have been narrated. Taiwan is standing at a symbolic crossroads in many ways. This conference aims to provide a platform for studying this multifaceted phenomenon.
EATS welcomes submissions from students currently enrolled in MA programmes. MA panels are not restricted to the theme of the conference, although submissions should be relevant to the broadly defined field of Taiwan Studies. Read more about the call for papers here.
