Call for Abstracts: EATS 2019 Conference at Nottingham Trent University, UK (April 10-12, 2019)

Poster:Post date:2018-07-12
16th Annual Conference of the European Association of Taiwan Studies (EATS), 2019

Recognising Taiwan: A Conference Exploring Taiwan’s Society and Political World

April 10-12, 2019
Nottingham Trent University, UK

To mark the 40th anniversary of Taiwan’s derecognition by the United States during the winter of 1978-79, the EATS 2019 Conference invites scholarly papers and panel proposals engaging with any aspect of Taiwan, its recognition, and the recognition that Taiwan bestows upon others. Beyond the political realm, the conference is keen to explore aspects of Taiwan's recognition including military alliances, its international trade links, its efforts at environmental preservation and towards environmental consciousness, its cultural diversity and liberalism, its contribution to film, literature and other arts, and its engagement with international charity and foreign aid. However, issues such as the Taiwan legal system’s continued willingness to endorse the death penalty also lead to arguably more critical international appraisals that should also be explored. The conference hereby acknowledges the broad spectrum of the ‘recognition’ theme and enthusiastically encourages papers or panel proposals from across the social sciences, arts and humanities and beyond.
