Dear Colleagues,

Please see below for information about the third panel in a three part series hosted by the Center for Taiwan Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara.


Taiwan Makes History III: "Taiwan's East Asia"


Speakers: Leo Ching (Duke University), Lung-chih Chang (Director of National Museum of Taiwan History) and Seiji Shirane (City College of New York)

Moderator: Kirsten Ziomek (Adelphi University)


This panel discussion addresses how the writing on Taiwan and Taiwanese history has evolved. The three panelists will provide new perspectives on and insights gained from viewing East Asia from the vantage point of Taiwan. As a country once overtaken by empires, the story of Taiwan is often told in terms of imperialism, divided loyalties, and rising nationalism. The panelists will introduce their current research projects and place them within a larger discussion that challenges received frameworks of situating Taiwan, historically, culturally, and globally.


Date: May 18, 2021 at 4:00pm PDT (Pacific Daylight Time) via Zoom
