Research Unit Gratefully Acknowledges Grant for Taiwan Studies Project

The new didactic project „A Teaching Program for History, Culture, and Languages of Taiwan” has been generously supported by the Taiwan Ministry of Education. In this program, scholars from the National Taichung University of Education will be invited to teach courses on the anthropology, social and economic history, linguistics and languages of Taiwan at the Faculty of East Asian Studies of Ruhr University Bochum.

The Research Unit for Taiwanese Culture and Literature coordinates the curriculum.

In the summer term 2019, we are expecting the anthropologist Dr. Cheng An-hsi 鄭安睎, who will teach the course “Taiwan’s ethnic groups between mountains and the sea: anthropological explorations”.

Taiwanese Documentary Film “Our Youth in Taiwan” (我們的青春,在台灣)
followed by Q&A with director Fu Yue

Director: Fu Yue (傅榆)

A star of the Taiwanese student movement, a celebrity Chinese student who loves Taiwan, and a Taiwanese documentary filmmaker passionate about politics. Each of them shared dreams of rebellion and building a better country. In the wake of the biggest social movement in Taiwan in recent years, they reflect on how close they came to realising their goals, how they were let down, and whether it is still possible to continue fighting for ideals.
