2018 Spotlight Taiwan in Estonia

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesOrganisation and participation in conferences, workshops, courses, seminars

Description

The purpose of this academic roundtable is to provide a platform for Taiwan Scholars in Baltic countries and Finland to meet, network and share information about their research both in formal and informal settings. Research about Taiwan is currently done in many fields, ranging from foreign policy to religion and sociology. Too often scholars working on distinct fields have not established sufficient links between one another. The purpose of this roundtable is to create a platform to bring together various initiatives and to create awareness that these independent initiatives can make mutual contributions when they are seen through the lens of Taiwan Studies.
Across different universities, countries, and academic fields, the Taiwan Studies framework can provide novel opportunities for cooperation, for generating new resources, and for pursuing new openings together. Thus, this occasion also provides opportunities to discuss future activities to consolidate Taiwan Studies as a specific field of research in the region.
