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 welcome the anthropologist Dr. Cheng An-hsi 鄭安睎, who is teaching the course “Taiwan’s ethnic groups between mountains and the sea: anthropological explorations”.
