Academia Sinica “1st World Congress of Taiwan Studies” (April 26-28)

Dear all,

I thought you might be interested in taking part of the “1st World Congress of Taiwan Studies”, to be held at Academia Sinica on April 26-28.

This is a unique opportunity, since it is the first time ever that such a Congress is organized !! As a matter of fact, it is jointly organized by 11 Institutes and Centers under the Humanities and Social Sciences Division of Academia Sinica.

It consists of 3 keynote speeches, 26 sessions and… 107 papers!!! (you can check them out in

If none of them catch your interest… well… what could it possibly be said, except that you might have been living in the wrong island?? 😉

Looking forward to seeing you there,
